I’m going to share you one of my biggest secrets why I can get to improve people’s skills faster.
I teach them how to focus on…
wait for it…
I teach them to focus on a few things that are important.
Back in school I’m notorious for asking the teacher why a boring lesson is important to learn and I still do.
I don’t do it out loud but sometime extra lessons are not really useful.
If something is not worth learning then it is important to not learn the lesson.
That’s just how I think personally.
If you need to improve your English skills you don’t need to go through every word in the dictionary.
You only need a few.
Where then do we start?
How about the top 100 most used words in the English language?
It is the most used after all, so it makes sense that we get this right now.
Do you agree?
I didn’t invent this but I found this very useful. Here’s the list. I copied it from Wikipedia. Why? Because it works. Here’s how you use it.
Can I pronounce each word correctly? Can I say it right?
Do I know what each word means? Can I come up with a short definition?
Can I use each word in a sentence?
Here’s an exercise:

Successful people are willing to experience temporary discomfort and do difficult activities that unsuccessful people are NOT willing to do so that they are able to build the life and enjoy benefits that unsuccessfull people will never have.
I am always praying for your success.
