AEE 800: 4 Lessons for Success That We’ve Learned After 800 Episodes

Today marks episode 800!

It’s the end of the summer and it’s a good time to sit back, reflect, and talk about success.

What have we learned after 800 episodes and how can this can help you reach your goals?

Listen to today’s episode and find out.

 

Our 4 lessons for success after 800 episodes:

1- Find your “WHY”:

This is a concept that was made famous by Simon Sinek and he talked about it in this TED talk. 

You have to have vision behind anything that you want to go big with. It can’t just be about you or making money or getting praise. It has to be about something bigger than you.

If you’re working on a team or helping people it should inspire others too.

At All Ears English our vision is about Connection NOT Perfection.

We try to follow this rule in our lives and our listeners follow it when they learn English.

Before you start any big project, ask yourself what your “why” is.

 

 

2-  Consistency if KING

If you want to do something well you have to do it consistently,

We have always published four days a week since the fall of 2013.

Consistency builds trust. 

If you are learning a new skill it’s better to practice every day for 15 minutes than once a week for 2 hours.

We love this quote: “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.” ―Tony Robbins

 

 

3- Don’t let your fear of failure freeze you

If every time we made a mistake we got so scared we stopped, there wouldn’t be an All Ears English!

Mistakes are okay, and you learn from them. That’s why they are there. With English, if you don’t try to speak, you will not succeed.

If you make mistakes when you speak you will learn from them and it will be a positive experience.

Mistakes are part of the package.

 

4- Listen to others

Sometimes the best way to learn is to stop talking to make sure you are hearing others.

That’s why we ask you guys for questions.

We want to hear what you want to learn!

Otherwise, it’s all about what we think you want to learn.

This helps us connect with our listeners and really get in touch with their needs.

The same goes for your learning.

You have to be receptive to those around you.

Don’t be the loudest person just to impress people.

Listen and you will be able to have a deeeper conversation and connection.

 

So what’s the takeaway today?

Sit back and make a list of what your big goals are this year, both professional and personal and make sure you have these four things.

If you don’t, figure out what they are and implement them into your routine.
