Are you ready to learn what the biggest life lesson that learning a new language will teach you is?
Promise me, you can’t be angry with me.
…Are you sure?
Ok, here it goes…
Get over yourself.
Excuse me; But Really.
You heard me right:
GET OVER YOURSELF.
Here’s what learning a language can teach you, and what learning French has taught me:
Get over trying not to make mistakes.
No one is perfect.
Get over trying to be perfect.
It doesn’t even sound fun…
Get over the feeling of not feeling good enough.
You are good enough, capable enough, and intelligent enough.
Get over waiting for “the perfect time.”
There will never be a “perfect time.”
Get over thinking you can’t.
Get over saying that it is too difficult.
You’ve accomplished all the difficult challenges in your life, thus far.
Get over your laziness.
You are not a lazy person.
Get over your pride.
The only person getting in your way, is you.
Get over your ego.
Again, the only person getting in your way, is you.
Get over thinking it’s not possible.
Anything is possible. …”Tout est possible.”
Get over your impatience.
Patience is a virtue.
Get over second-guessing yourself…and just do it.
You are capable of anything you put your mind to.
You know you’ll be better once you do.
As the old saying goes,
“Nothing great came that easy.”
