Peter: So, Chigusa, when we talk about motivation: there’s the motivation to start something...
Chigusa: Right. Your reason for starting: Like for traveling or because you like the culture.
Peter: Exactly. We won’t be talking about that.
Chigusa: And then, there’s the motivation to continue.
Peter: Exactly. The motivation to keep going and to actually stick with your goals.
Chigusa: I think staying motivated is tough for most people...
Peter: It is. And that’s the topic for today: How to stay motivated and keep on going.
Chigusa: Alright, so you said most people get motivation wrong. How?
Peter: Well, let’s see if you make the mistake, Chigusa.
Chigusa: Okay!
Peter: Here’s a question: If you want to stay motivated with a language or the gym, or any goal, what do you usually do?
Chigusa: If I want to get motivated? Hmm. I remind myself of all the results I’ll get.
Peter: And THEN, you go and try to do it, right?
Chigusa: Yeah, first I want to get the feeling... and then I try to do it.
Peter: Chigusa, that’s a great answer.
Chigusa: Really? So am I making a mistake?
Peter: Well... Let’s get to the first secret of motivation: Number one: Action comes first.
Chigusa: So, I am!?
Peter: Well, don’t feel bad. That’s how we all start. First we get that inspiration. Then we start doing it, right? But for the motivation to keep going, most people make the mistake of following this same process.
Chigusa: So action comes first?
Peter: Exactly. First you need to get started, then you get motivated. But most people have it backwards.
Chigusa: They want to get motivated first.
Peter: And... wishing for motivation is like reading about “how to go outside for a walk” instead of going outside for a walk.
Chigusa: Ah, yeah, instead of doing the thing....
Peter: ...you’re on the sofa, thinking about doing it.
Chigusa: Okay, if I wanted to stay motivated with language learning, what do I do?
Peter: You should jump in and start learning first BECAUSE this will boost your motivation. Because real motivation comes from experience and seeing results.
Chigusa: So listeners, what happens is...
Peter: First you do a language lesson. You learn a conversation.
Chigusa: Then you do another. Now you know 2 conversations.
Peter: You start feeling you can do more. You see results. And, results bring motivation.
Chigusa: So listeners, just press the play button on our lesson... and jump right into it.
Peter: The motivation comes after. Ok, Number two: Have a go-to study method
Chigusa: Now, what do you mean by that?
Peter: Here’s an example: When you go to work, there are tasks you do first. The easy ones.
Chigusa: Yeah, I check my email and plan my tasks for the day.
Peter: So, these are your go-to tasks, right? They’re easy to do and then, you get going.
Chigusa: Yeah, you’re right.
Peter: So, with language learning, you need to have that 1 go-to study method that is super simple for you to do.
Chigusa: Like just listening to an audio lesson and reading along. Or a video lesson.
Peter: Exactly. Some of our Inner Circle members start with writing. They write out the lesson dialog. And it’s good because... there’s no thinking involved, you just copy it out. It’s easy to do.
Chigusa: So, listeners, have a go-to study method that you can always start with...
Peter: ...and that way, you can jump in without thinking.
Chigusa: Number Three: Always Have Goals
Peter: As an example, I want you to think about your friends. Do you have that one friend that’s always up to something - some project? They’re working on a song. Or, they’re making videos. Or they’re building something.
Chigusa: Yes, I have some like that. They’re very motivated people.
Peter: Well, do you ever wonder how they stay motivated?
Chigusa: I do!
Peter: It’s because they are always working on something. They always give themselves something to do.
Chigusa: Ah, this goes back to “taking action.” If you’re not learning or working, you can’t stay motivated.
Peter: Exactly. So, you need to apply this to language learning.
Chigusa: So, how would you do that?
Peter: You need goals and things to look forward to.
Chigusa: Like travel?
Peter: Exactly. If you’re traveling in 2 months, then your job is to learn as much travel phrases as possible.
Chigusa: If you’ve signed up for a language proficiency test, now you have to something to work on.
Peter: Listeners, you can make it a goal to finish 30 audio lessons on our site.
Chigusa: Or, choose 1 easy audio lesson and make it a goal to memorize the dialogue.
Peter: So, always have something to do and you’ll never have to worry about motivation.
Chigusa: So, listeners, remember...
Peter: 1. Action Comes FIrst
Chigusa: 2. Have a go-to study method
Peter: 3: Always have goals. And remember...
