Trust Yourself You Can Do It


How do you think you can motivate other persons to have the willingness to learn English or other foreign languages? Well, I could never have imagined that there were such ways to keep motivating my students. I just learned from the experience that sometimes I was successful enough, but sometimes it’s still difficult to do. No matter what, just give it a shot 🙂


Once, I taught this student, many years ago I think, well I don’t remember, but I do still remember how he was very angry and disappointed because at that time he thought that English was very difficult for him. Even though he already tried to learn it, he still failed and he complained me, why he was accepted as the student at that school where he belonged to at that time if actually his English score was not good enough to fulfill the requirement to enroll the school which finally demanded him a lot to master English. For a second I was stunned, trying to figure out what I should answer him, because I could see that he was very afraid of this demand (finishing his English class with minimum score meanwhile he thought it was very difficult for him to learn it). I was in junior year working as a teacher at that time and I eventually just told him, “Well, you are already here now. You have the opportunity to learn English with me and I promise you that English will be very important and useful for you, especially for your future. You just need to be patient, don’t be afraid, trust me you can do it and of course, don’t forget to pray.”
I couldn’t do a lot at that time, that’s all that I could do and I realized that the presence of me as my student’s facilitator in the class is not only about transferring my knowledge but also motivating them, reminding them to keep their spirit high, and being there for them when they have their problems.

Years after that, even a couple months ago, I still met him on the social media, and he admitted that he finally realized how English’s very useful for him now and he’s very grateful for our meeting in the past. I also thank him for being patient enough to struggle with English and trusting for all I said.

It’s a happy ending story at the end.

Smile! ^_^

    Having to overcome obstacles without confidence and the right frame of mind can be stressful, but being negative about it does not make the situation any better. Everyone starts at somewhere and facing difficulties is part of life. In order not to repeat past mistakes and failures, different mindset is needed to make that change. In this case, confidence is needed to make a change that would result in a different outcome. To obtain confidence, having a complete trust in yourself is needed in which it’s easier said than done. To “Change” progress is needed, and trusting yourself is an important independent variable for all change to be needed.

    To keep your dream alive, you need to believe. To believe you need to trust yourself. To implement it….

    English is the kind of language that is used universally around the world. Even since i was a kid, i was amazed by the language and i learn new kinds of language everyday. And i hope that everyone will try in their best to appreciate the English language, because trust me it is very important. Sure it’s not easy the first time, but if you keep on trying, then the results will be very pleasing
