As discussed in the book "Decisive", by Dan and Chip Heath, various factors contribute to making bad decisions.

How Do You Become Rich?

Someone studied successful people to find the exact answer to this, and the lessons he shared have been followed for the last hundred years, and the book is still being studied today. At the beginning of the 20th century (1900) a guy named Napolean Hill was challenged to do something. He was challenged to interview very successful people over the next 20 years to find out what lead to their success. And through this research, he created the book "Think and Grow Rich" which is a self-help classic.

Do you Want to Become Rich in English?

What he found was that none of these successful people possess skills that were unattainable by most people. What it comes to when gaining big success can be broken down into a process. And I am going to talk about this process, and how you can apply it to your English learning in this episode of the Feel Good English podcast.

Neuro-linguistic programming deals with how our minds and bodies are connected, how our emotions work, how we see the world, everybody sees the world differently, and our experiences and the way we communicate with other people is completely based on our own map of how we have learned about the world.

If you find yourself living in and thinking about the past too much, or maybe you procrastinate and you never seem to be able to get ahead of the projects that you want to get done, you are always doing them at the last minute, if you feel sad a lot, you are depressed a lot, maybe you start new habits, but then you soon give up, you soon quit
