For the past 4 months, I have been practicing Spanish daily.
I practiced from a textbook daily, listened to podcasts, and watched Spanish TV.
Yet when I actually got down to Mexico, I was hit with the harsh reality of actual conversation.
Despite how much I practiced, I would find myself dumbfounded anytime someone spoke to me in Spanish.
While I could speak and communicate decently, I could not comprehend.
I was at a plateau.
What I had been doing got me to a place of writing and communication, but it failed to prepare me for comprehension.
So I hired a Spanish teacher, and we sat there and practiced conversation.
I practiced listening to her.
And within a matter of weeks, my comprehension levels drastically improved.
I started having actual two way conversations in Spanish.
What got you here, won't get you there.
When you hit a plateau, you have to change what you are doing to grow past it.
Where are you hitting a plateau in your business, health, relationships, or personal growth?
