Everyone needs #goals in #life. Goals can help us improve our #personality, our way of life, and our #relationships. (C) Noah Grezlak

 

Setting goals is easy enough, but the real challenge is reaching them. How can you #reach your goals?

The first step in reaching your goals is to overcome #fear of #failure. If we start out thinking negatively, we likely won’t get very far in our efforts to reach our goals. In fact, we may not even set goals in the first place. Fear of failure can sometimes prevent us from doing this. Negative #thoughts or past „failures“ may overwhelm us. But if we keep thinking back to past „failures“, were these really failures after all? Did you #learn something that you can now put into practice or avoid the next time?

The second stage is to #identify what goal you want to set. You can start by #brainstorming potential goals. Some possible goal ideas are: learn a foreign language, stop smoking, make more #friends, climb a dormant volcano or mountain, #travel out of the country, learn a traditional dance or to play a musical instrument, show gratitude every day, lose weight, eat #healthier, or spend more time with your #family. You are the one that knows what appeals to you and what doesn’t. Try to come up with 10 to 20 ideas for possible goals. You may find that some of these will be interrelated and can help you reach your bigger goals.

Next, analyze your list and ask yourself questions like: Which goal seems the most #exciting? Which one is the most #challenging? Which one will make me proudest of myself if I #achieve it? The best goals for you are the ones that mean the most to you. You might select goals that touch all aspects of your life. After analyzing your list, now #prioritize it. First, select a few short-term goals that you could reach in just a few days. Then choose some long-term goals that will take weeks or months to reach. Now number them in the order you would like to achieve them.

The third stage is the #planning one. Without a plan, you may as well give up. It helps to write everything down on paper. Start by listing your goal. Then set a reasonable #deadline by which time you hope to have accomplished your goal. Next, plan the steps involved in reaching the goal. Be sure to anticipate possible #obstacles and how you will work to overcome them. Finally, make a commitment to yourself by signing and dating the paper.

After doing this, get #busy! Try to think of something you can do each day that will bring you closer to your goal, no matter how small. Be sure to track your progress and celebrate each step accomplished along the way. If something goes wrong in your plan, adapt to the situation and reevaluate your goal if necessary. And finally, imagine yourself once you have finally accomplished your goal and the satisfaction you will feel.

Why Travel Makes People #Happy (www.berlin-training.eu)

LEMPtraining_Travel_The_World
Some people love to #travel and others not so much. I love most every aspect of it. I like planning a #trip, deciding on the #route, what I want to #see, where I want to #stay, the #flights, in fact the whole caboodle. Then there’s the actual trip which is exciting and when it is over, travel gives you (usually) wonderful #memories. What is there not to like? (C) Alex Wong

Planning is a great time as you get to choose where you want to go, how you are getting there, all aspects of your trip, including #hotel. Today there are so many ways you can get information about the place you have chosen for your trip. For example, say you want to plan a trip to Costa Rica as your neighbors went there last year and they loved it. Certainly you can pick their brains about their #experiences there.

Then you can do your own #research. Online is a great place to start as you can look at maps, visit #blogs about the place and start planning what you will do when you get there. There are flights to book. Is San Jose the right airport for you or would Liberia be a better choice? Check with different airlines or expedia.com for the best routes and what the #price differences are. Maybe you should do some research into all-inclusive deals or general #vacation deals that include hotel and flights.

If you decide you would rather plan your itinerary yourself, then you can spend more time planning your trip. Costa Rica is well known for its beauty and there is so much to do there. You could go on a trip through a rainforest. Maybe a yoga camp? How about #car rentals? You could then #simply go wherever you want each day and not plan much at all. You could start of in San Jose and spend a night or two there to get to know the city and then hire a car and travel north to Arenal where the rainforests are and the volcano. The area is also a renowned spa town. You can either plan ahead and book hotels or just pick a place to stay when you get there – something that is usually very doable.

You could go further north west until you get to the beautiful #Pacific coast where there are lovely small towns on the coast where you can enjoy water sports, go on a trip to see the whales or the turtles, or simply #relax on one of the #beautiful #beaches.

While #Spanish is the language of the country, it is not difficult to get by with just #English. Travelling by car, you could more or less see the whole country in about two weeks and have a great time. Another plus is that it is near the equator so the weather so the weather is usually beautiful all year round. The people are nice and friendly and the country itself is spectacular and so are the flowers and the birds – they even have monkeys.

After your trip, you can spend your time looking at your #photos and re-living the great time you had there. This is just one of the many reasons that travelling is wonderful.

Die Expolingua in #Berlin – Mehr als nur eine #Business-Plattform

Expolingua_LEMPtraining
Die größte Fremdsprachen-Messe #Deutschlands, die #Expolingua, öffnet ihre Pforten. An diesem #Wochenende können ihre Besucher in Berlin erfahren, auf welchen unterschiedlichen Wegen man eine Fremdsprache erlernen bzw. perfektionieren kann. (C) Alexander Lam

Wo und wie eine Sprache lernen ?

150 Aussteller aus rund 50 Ländern dieser #Welt tummeln sich dieses Wochenende in Berlin. Neben Sprach#schulen, die Sprach#reisen für Interessierte jeden #Alters anbieten, stoßen Gäste auf Kulturinstitute, Hochschulen, #Au Pair – oder #Work-and-#Travel Agenturen.

Reisemuffel können sich auf die Angebote von Sprachschulen aus Berlin sowie auf anregende Gespräche mit Entwicklern von Sprachlernprogrammen freuen, die mit hübschen Sprach#animationen ihre Neuheiten vorführen. Alle anderen werden sich Anregungen bezüglich Praktikums-, #Arbeits- oder Studienmöglichkeiten im Ausland einholen. Diese Vielfalt der Anwendungsgebiete führt vor Augen, dass sich der Spracherwerb vor Ort mit dem Austausch von Kollegen oder Kommilitonen verknüpfen lässt.

TOEFL oder #IELTS, Handgeben oder Verbeugung?

Wer sich für ein Studium im Ausland entscheidet, für den fängt der eigentliche Ärger richtig an. Aus dem Wirrwarr der Sprachzertifikate muss das richtige – TOEFL IELTS? – ausgewählt werden. Daneben müssen noch weitere Schritte des #Bewerbungsprozederes für die jeweilige Universität bewältigt werden. Aber keine Sorge, Ansprechpartnerinnen der ausländischen Universitäten stehen dir mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, damit du unbesorgt deinen Studienaufenthalt vorbereiten kannst.

Wenn du aber kein Interesse an einem Studium hast, gibt es auf der Messe andere Möglichkeiten für einen spannenden Auslandsaufenthalt. Sprachurlaub oder ein Praktikum sind weitere ideale #Chancen, das Gelernte in der Praxis anzuwenden. Darüber hinaus haben die Veranstalter der Expolingua Referenten zu beispielsweise kulturellen Gepflogenheiten eingeladen. Sie klären darüber auf, worauf Ausländer in exotischen Ländern achten sollten. Auf diese Weise kannst du dich vor Reiseantritt über die fremden Sitten informieren, denn eine Sprache zu lernen, hört nicht bei den Vokabeln auf.

Aufklärung und Spaß

Auf dieser Messe können ihre Besucher die Produkte der Aussteller testen. Allerdings sind die Produkte hier #Mini-Sprachkurse, und testen, bedeutet, sich von der Qualität des Unterrichts im Zeitraffer zu überzeugen. Daneben gibt es die Chance, eine #HipHop- oder Bauchtanz #Performance zu bestaunen. Immerhin gehört Kulturverständnis zur Sprache wie Senf zur Bratwurst. Aus diesem Grund dürfen auch diese Ausdrucksformen des Fremden auf der Messe nicht fehlen. Schließlich machen sie den Messegästen einen Abstecher in die Ferne schmackhaf. Selbst wenn sich die Ferne im Tanz#studio um die Ecke befindet, gehört bei manchem eine gehörige Portion Überwindung dazu, sich auf sie einzulassen. Aber diese Herausforderung lohnt sich, genauso wie ein Abenteuer in ferne Länder.
