If you want to learn a new language, you must immerse yourself in the culture and people who speak it.
“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.” -Ludwig Wittgenstein
I’ll never forget the feelings of complete shock when I first walked the streets of Seoul, Korea as a brand new church missionary in 2008. It was monsoon season and the air was heavy and thick. The hum of beetles in the trees pierced my ears and made my head spin, but not nearly as much as hearing the people of South Korea speak as they passed me on the crowded streets.
I was overwhelmed. I couldn’t understand a lick of what they were saying. This was nothing like the basics I had learned during 3 months of study prior to crossing the Pacific Ocean. My stomach churned and I felt SO out of place. I thought, I’ll never be able to speak this crazy language. I’ll never understand.
But I immersed myself in the language.
It took time. I’m still not fluent like a native speaker. But I can communicate efficiently and well. I don’t know all the impressive vocabulary to send like an intellectual in Korean, but I can hold conversations that transcend basic needs. I feel confident in jumping on a plane at this moment and diving headfirst into the land of those wonderful people because I immersed myself in the language and the culture.
What am I getting at here?
I want you to immerse yourself in the language, mindset, vocabulary, and culture of Body Buddies and the Power Foods Lifestyle.
Since we can’t hang out every day in person for the next 30 days to get you acclimated, I have created the next best thing–a podcast.
A podcast is a hub of audio recordings you can access anytime–day or night–and listen to at your convenience. I recommend listening at any chance you get–washing dishes, food prepping, driving to and from work, on your lunch break, during an evening walk, while you’re doing cardio at the gym, or as you’re cleaning up in the morning.
I don’t care when you listen, just so long as you listen.
Is there a recommended order to listen to?
No, there is not. I have included the top 10 I’d like you to listen to below, but then from there, pick and choose according to the topics you feel will most benefit you. You can visit the podcast blog and use the search feature at the top of your screen to search topics. If you cannot find a podcast on a topic of interest, please email my team to have it added to my queue at firstname.lastname@example.org. My goal is to get you the best, most efficient information you need to be motivated to make changes. I also love to talk you through the reality of psychology and applying the science in strategy to your life.
I do get fiery at times. I might hurt your feelings with my bluntness. I’m known as the tangent queen. You’ll get to know many of my stories.
And whether you hate me or love me, I promise you one thing: YOU WILL LEARN SO SO SO SO MUCH if you open your mind to one of curiosity, learning, and seeking to unpack what I’m sharing to apply it to your life.
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY IMPORTANT >>>
