Language Learning – Let Your Anger Work For You-ravbin

UnCategorized Anger is powerful stuff, all right! It can really help you in your language learning. German theologian Martin Luther once said, "I never work better than when I am inspired by anger; when I am angry, I can write, pray, and preach well, for then my whole temperament is quickened, my understanding sharpened, and all mundane vexations and temptations depart." Think about the last time you got really angry about something. Really angry! Didn’t you feel an unequaled strength within yourself? Weren’t you filled with fire and passion and ready to take action? Didn’t you almost feel ‘unstoppable’? While anger is often used in a destructive way, you can also learn to use anger to motivate yourself to higher and higher achievements in every area of life…but especially in language learning. How do you do this? First, you obviously need to get angry about the right things, and then you need to direct that anger in the right direction to learn that language. Look at your life the way it is right now. Are you satisfied with your career path, your financial situation, the state of your relationships, and the state of your health? If not, get mad about it! Let yourself get angry about your bad habits, your tendency to procrastinate, and the many missed opportunities your behavior has caused. Get mad about your inability to get and stay motivated long enough to make positive changes. Get mad about ignoring the problem until it became a chronic condition! Now imagine how language learning can help you in each of those areas. It could help you get a better job. If you learn a new language you could possibly make more money. If you learn to speak another language you could even make new friendships or possibly meet the love of your life who doesn’t speak your mother tongue. Now, that may seem a little far-fetched, but I know many people who have had this fantastic experience…myself included. But as Martin Luther described above, let your anger clear all confusion and mundane thoughts from your mind. Let it focus your thoughts to a laser point, and then turn that point onto any situation in your life that displeases you. Focus it on every barrier that prevents you from successfully learning a new language. Use your anger to propel you into action to learn a new language. Decide that you’re "mad as a hor." and you’re not going to take it any longer! Let your anger serve as a fire under your rear end to propel you into learning a new language successfully or doing whatever must be done to change your life once and for all. Go on a rampage and clear out your bad habits. Eliminate your unproductive tendencies and replace them with empowering ones…especially those that keep you from studying and practicing the new language you want to learn. Evaluate every aspect of your life carefully, and be willing to let go of anything that isn’t working for you. And then begin to work in the habits that you need to learn a second language well. If done correctly, this works like a charm. Once you can reach a point of intolerance about your existing circumstances, you will find yourself feeling really angry, and really ready to make changes. THAT is the moment when you hold a powerful force for change right in the palm of your hand to learn a new language…or anything else for that matter. Just remember to get angry about the situations and habits that detract from who you want to be, and be sure to direct your anger in constructive ways to learn the language. Of course yelling and screaming won’t change things. So channel your energy into action steps that will. You may not be able to change everything overnight, but you can at least take the first steps today and then keep up with the process over time…and you will begin to make better progress learning the language. You’ll also probably have to keep rekindling your anger from time to time because it tends to be short lived, but this is a good thing because it allows you to use it for language leanring in a very precise and focused way.
