My name is Carlos Moran and I am an English teacher and sometimes a Spanish teacher at Global Toyonaka. I am Mexican-American and I live in Toyonaka.
I am confident that when you are learning a new language, three very important key ingredients are necessary for mastery. These three ingredients can be used in any aspect in your life. For example, relationships, business, learning a new skill, etc.
My father taught me these and I have never realized how important they are until now that I am living alone in Japan 5 years after his passing, however, they still play a huge role in my life.
Number 1: Have a very clear ``Why``.
Ask yourself, ``Why I am doing what I am doing``. The, ask yourself again ``Why? do I want to do that?`` Do this at least three times to get to the root of your desired goal. Once you have your main purpose it will be very difficult to quit when things get difficult. This brings me to number 2.
Number 2: Never give up.
When you are doing something new or something for a long time, things will get very difficult. It may lead you or motivate you to stop doing it and you will quit. It is very important to never give up because if you can pass the ``I want to give up stage`` I can promise you that things will become easier and more enjoyable. This also brings me to number 3.
Number 3: Enjoy what you do.
My dad very put it very simple, ``If you don`t like what you do, you will never succeed``. This has held true for everything that I have done. You have to have fun learning the new desired skill because it would make you want to do it more and more. Passion is very important.
