Have you ever set a goal that you want to reach, but you have been blocked from accomplishing it by unexpected obstacles? Many of us had some unexpected schedule changes this week due to the snow or ice. Lots of people were stuck at home because the ice made driveways and roads impossible to navigate. They were blocked from following their original schedule and forced to change their plans.
So, how do you respond when meeting your goal isn’t as easy as you thought it would be? Maybe it takes longer than you thought, it’s harder than you expected, and you’re not seeing the results you wanted. What do you do? Do you give up or do you press on, knowing that the end results will be worth the effort?
Perhaps you are like some of my clients who start accent reduction training with high motivation and great anticipation. Often, several weeks into the course, they hit the unexpected block of a stubborn habit or well-ingrained muscle memory pattern that just won’t change as easily as they had hoped. Like the ice storm that stops our intended progress and changes our plans, these old speech habits can stop you from making the progress that you thought you would make. But, you have a choice – you can give up and decide that it’s just too hard. Or, you can press on and keep practicing until you master that new American pronunciation and you meet the goal of clearer speech that you’ve always wanted.
For some of you, the blocks happen before you even get started. You’re afraid that changing your accent will be too hard, too much work, or too expensive. I want to show you how to get through those mental blocks and get started on the path to clearer, easier speech.
You can’t break through those blocks if you don’t try, and your speech probably isn’t going to get clearer on its own. You need a guide, a coach who can work with you, encourage you, and help ensure that you meet your accent reduction goals. To encourage you to push through those blocks and start working towards your goals, I want to make you a special offer.
