in order to get fluid but if you in order to get fluid but if you in order to get fluid but if you
think about all those things think about all those things think about all those things
then you are beginning and you then you are beginning and you then you are beginning and you
are setting yourself up for are setting yourself up for are setting yourself up for
failure because it’s going to be failure because it’s going to be failure because it’s going to be
too intimidating and it’s it’s too intimidating and it’s it’s

just going to be too much of a just going to be too much of a just going to be too much of a
hassle for you to want to do hassle for you to want to do hassle for you to want to do
those things those things those things
so that’s the first bad reason so that’s the first bad reason so that’s the first bad reason
why you don’t want to think why you don’t want to think why you don’t want to think
about the steps to doing about the steps to doing about the steps to doing
something before thinking about something before thinking about something before thinking about
the goal in really making the the goal in really making the the goal in really making the
goal strong which we’ll talk goal strong which we’ll talk goal strong which we’ll talk
about in a minute about in a minute about in a minute
the second reason it’s a bad the second reason it’s a bad the second reason it’s a bad
idea to think about the steps idea to think about the steps idea to think about the steps
for doing something before you for doing something before you for doing something before you
really focus on the goal is really focus on the goal is really focus on the goal is
because you blend or you mix the because you blend or you mix the because you blend or you mix the
goal with all of the steps and goal with all of the steps and goal with all of the steps and
you think that you have to do you think that you have to do you think that you have to do
certain steps to make a goal certain steps to make a goal certain steps to make a goal
I see this all the time in Japan I see this all the time in Japan
I see this all the time in Japan
that people want to do something that people want to do something that people want to do something
and that they have to do it in a and that they have to do it in a and that they have to do it in a
certain way because that’s just certain way because that’s just certain way because that’s just
how it’s been done or what they how it’s been done or what they how it’s been done or what they
hear from other people about how hear from other people about how hear from other people about how
to do something and this is the to do something and this is the to do something and this is the
same thing that happened to my same thing that happened to my same thing that happened to my
wife’s sister she thought that wife’s sister she thought that wife’s sister she thought that
the only way she could get back the only way she could get back the only way she could get back
to Tokyo would be to fly to Tokyo would be to fly to Tokyo would be to fly
directly from okinawa to tokyo directly from okinawa to tokyo directly from okinawa to tokyo
and that’s why she had to wait and that’s why she had to wait and that’s why she had to wait
instead of flying to a different instead of flying to a different instead of flying to a different
location or doing something else location or doing something else location or doing something else
in order to get to Tokyo in a in order to get to Tokyo in a in order to get to Tokyo in a
different way different way different way
so again these two things and so again these two things and so again these two things and
this is the reason why it’s this is the reason why it’s this is the reason why it’s
important to not think about the important to not think about the important to not think about the
steps that you need to do before steps that you need to do before steps that you need to do before
you think about your goal the you think about your goal the you think about your goal the
first one is that you’ll be first one is that you’ll be first one is that you’ll be
intimidated there will be too intimidated there will be too intimidated there will be too
much to think about and you will much to think about and you will much to think about and you will
talk yourself out of doing talk yourself out of doing talk yourself out of doing
something this means to stop something this means to stop something this means to stop
yourself and to give yourself yourself and to give yourself yourself and to give yourself
reasons why you don’t want to do reasons why you don’t want to do reasons why you don’t want to do
something and the second bad something and the second bad something and the second bad
reason is that it will stop your reason is that it will stop your reason is that it will stop your
mind from being creative about mind from being creative about mind from being creative about
how you can accomplish something how you can accomplish something how you can accomplish something

  1. is very nice video think you very much,i like learning english yesturday i lesson the first one and to day l lessoning to thr second i havr a confiance on yuor videos i.will.be proctisr english godly.good bay

  2. Greetings from Brazil, My name is Luis, and  I think your videos are the bests podcasts about English. Crongratulations guy, See you, bye, bye

  3. I have listened to the first two Podcasts, and I can just agree with everyone else: It's great! And I really like the Topics you talk about, because we are not only improving our English but also getting motivated, almost subconsciously! Thank you! Arigato! :]

    There's one more thing I find useful:
    When you have a goal,
    don't think about how long it will take, time passes anyway!

  4. I have to say thank you very much for such a amazing videos you have posted. Those are very helpful for me.I love your voice. I will try harder and follow your suggestion to improve my speaking skill.

  5. I just started actually speak english when I stopped to talk (or at least try to talk :D)
    and started listening 🙂
    listening comes first, so after you learn to liste.. you'll be able to talk.

  6. I really like your advice and lessons.. specially with the conversation to native americans. I'm from philippines and pursuing my studies in english language by myself. I understand english in average but whenever i speak i can't express myself fluently. By the way thanks again for the videos 🙂 i'm your fans hehe..

  7. The magnetic goals is made up of 3 parts

    The first part is the topic sentence (vague idea)

    The second part is the primary support(explain the vague idea with the aid of my primary supports. I mean I support the vague idea using the primary supports)

    And the third part is the secondary supports(explain the primary supports in detail )

    I follow this system in order to write an essay . (topic sentence, primary ideas, secondary ideas)

    am I right ?
