I enjoyed a lot, your today's podcast.
Unfortunately, negative thoughts act like poison in our veins and often stop us from moving forward. It's like trekking up a mountain; the summit seems far away. Some of us are already demoralized and exhausted at the thought of climbing it.
And then some don't overthink and start climbing, step by step, meter by meter, without looking up, just concentrating on the effort and sometimes stopping to admire the landscape and enjoying the progress.
That's the spirit of starting to learn English, or any other activity, like playing an instrument, dancing, chest, etc....
Another thought, instead of using the word learning English, it could be rephrased by enjoying English.
Thanks a lot for your podcasts
