607. A lot of success on their counts

Today I copy a quotation from great BROWN, H. D. (1989) A Practical Guide to Language Learning. A Fifteen-Week Program of Strategies for Success. New York: McGraw-Hill.

For me it’s a sound insight for a learner of English, and hits upon one of the keys to succeed in learning English. If useful, you can read it and keep it in mind for your, for our daily teaching.

One of the primary keys to success in any undertaking is to establish your own personal goals. The more those goals arise out of your convictions, beliefs, and general aspirations, the better are your chances of succeeding. If you’re involved in something only because someone else has told you to be there, you’re not as likely to come out a winner. (page 5).
