Anne Frank. Gabriel Garcia Marquez. P. Diddy. At first glance, these three personalities do not have anything in common. Frank was a young Jewish girl who kept a diary while hiding from Hitler's forces, Marquez is a best-selling author and Nobel laureate in Literature while Diddy is a rapper turned business mogul. But they do share one thing: they are all products of a Montessori school.
Many students start preparing for IELTS exam with dreams of immigration and higher studies in foreign nations. The students who go for Masters in science and medicine fare better in the exams, as the first language in their degree course is English. This is not so for other students. The students preparing for immigration find it very difficult to get required score in IELTS exam . There are a few reasons for it. The major one is the high expectations of improving English within a short period of one month. The other one is the influence of native language in English grammar and accent.
These two major issues de motivate a candidate who attempt IELTS exam . During training, they feel learning English is not their cup of tea and they somehow want to pass the exam. These negative thoughts bring their motivational levels further down and register in their subconscious mind that they can’t master English language. They soon crash land and let their dreams to die.
For those who feel learning English language for IELTS exam is too tough to learn, Let me ask them a question. Is it possible to learn a skill without a passion for it? Have you loved English language?
Learn first to love English language. Make your mind ready and commit yourself to spend your time in improving language skills. Set your goals beyond IELTS exam . Make an oath to learn English language within a month or two than mere pass IELTS exam . You will get good IELTS score if you know English language well.
When you are determined to win, you have to give back your energy and time to acquire it. Acquiring a skill is not free. You have to give up your evenings with friends, parties, tv shows and cinemas for it. You have to allocate a definite time and plan for it. Such dedication and self-motivation can make you to master English language within a short period of time.
So don’t give away when things get tougher and harder to achieve. Take time and learn. Form a good strategy and proceed. Use proven techniques for improving English language. Then only you can become the real master …a master who mastered English language and his own mind.
Motivation in a Minute – Simple Skills to Self-Motivate and Mood-Regulate
It dawned on me that there are some things worth mentioning around ‘motivation’ – how to access it and how to maintain it. Here are my top 5 tips:
1. Listen to uplifting music
Whether it’s Mozart, Motorhead or Musicals, if you have a piece (or pieces) of music which makes you feel great and inspired when you listen to them, make a resolution to up-the-ante and get them on the stereo a little more often!
2. Invest in some motivational audios
These are great for listening on your personal stereo or ipod when you have gap-time (on the bus, in the car, while you’re walking). I recommend some of the audio material from JackCanfield.com and from TonyRobbins.com. Like me, they’re professionals of the human potential movement and their material will give you a whole new opportunity to frame your life in a rich way.
3. Spend time with 'positive friends'
How many times have you felt down, headed over to a great friend’s house for a tea and a rant, and you’ve come away feeling positive, bright and ready to face the world – head held high? Make a mental note of who these people are and actively choose to spend a little more time with them each week.
4. Stretch your holiday excitement
Having an exciting occasion for you and the children to look forward to together
is so much more than just the holiday itself. I often count down to a holiday (or even a weekend away or a mini-break to see family) as far as 30 days beforehand with my daughter. It makes the magic and excitement of the event stretch to positively enhance a greater percentage of our lives, and at no extra financial investment.
5. Eat fresh healthy food
It’s a proven fact that fresh fruit and vegetables will contribute positively to our physical and emotional selves. The more resources we give our body, the less energy it has to spend managing ‘excess’ (these might be excess carbohydrate, fat, sugar or salt … just say ‘no’!). Play to your and your children’s advantage by gradually dialing up the ‘fresh’ part of your diet and watch how this gradually enhances your positive mood management!
