Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Why Where You Are Doesn't Matter

Difficulty: 0

- Look, no matter where you are now, it's fine.

It doesn't matter.

What's important is not who you are right now,

but who you are becoming.

Hello, I'm Julian Northbrook from,

here with another quick two-minute English

learning tip for you.

Two minutes on the timer, hit it.

This morning I had a follow-up coaching call

with one of my accelerator coaching course clients

and she said to me what she learned throughout

the 90 days that we did the coaching course

was revolutionary to her.

And she said she's happy that she finally has clarity

around what she has to do

to continuously keep on growing as a

speaker of english as a second language.

However, she also said to me that

she feels rather frustrated because

she now sees that she has wasted a lot of time

over the last ten years doing the wrong things,

struggling, and just not really moving forward

with her english.

She said she was frustrated about that.

She felt frustrated about all the time lost.

And where she could be now if only

she had known what she knows now then.

Look, I get it, it's frustrating

and it is,

but the important thing is not who you are now

it's who you are becoming.

Ultimately the best time to have learned

how to improve yourself as a speaker of english

as a second language to have overcome your challenges,

overcome your problems, and got yourself to the point

where you can actually do the things you want

to do in english, the best time was 10 years ago.

The second best time is now.

We can't change the past and there's

no point in worrying about or focusing on the things

that we can't control or can't change.

All that matters is what you are doing from now.

You are where are you are and you can't change that fact.

Don't worry too much about all the time you may have wasted

or the opportunities that you have missed.

The fact that you weren't taught english properly

at school or the fact that you spent a long time

doing something that wasn't effective

and wasn't actually helping you.

All you need to worry about is

do you know what you need to know now?

If you do, brilliant.

You now have a bright future ahead of you

and you can just keep implementing that step by step.

Continuously, consistently, over time,

continuously growing in english,

improving yourself in all areas of your life.

Doing what you need to do.

If you don't have that clarity,

now is the time to get it.

Remember, it's who you are becoming

that is important, not who you currently are.

If you're not too sure what to do

and you want to get that clarity

the first port of cool, as it were,


Where I will teach you the five key changes

that you need to make to the way that you

set out to improve yourself as a non native english speaker.

This is me, Julian Northbrook.

If you found this useful, give it a nice big old thumbs up.

If you didn't find it useful, give it thumbs up anyway.

And I will see you, my friend, in the next video.

Bye bye.
