How to build up a Sustain Commitment to learn..

Human are so dynamic, we can change everytime. Changes of moods, mind, desires, targets, dreams and anything.

Sometimes we feel so enthusiasm at first. But, it doesn’t takes longer time. We will getting bored.

For people who can create their plans routinely and manage them properly is good skill, but otherwise people who can’t manage their plans even to make some plans they can’t do it so at least it’s sign initial of problem.

Because, we can’t make sure our life is always in the good path, right?

So, how will we be without any plans? It’s possible or not?

Plan to school, plan to get job and to get special soulmate to be our longlast partner.

Prefer to our daily plans, we have one of big plan is to have new skill.


I want to be international public speaker, so I must able to speak English fluently and accentuately, then to get this skill I went to somewhere I can learn english better.

I went to Pare because what I knew Pare is best place to learn and its environment is supportive for students.

A few weeks in Pare. I’m so excited with my classes. I took many programs, wish I make significant changes for my ability in English.

Time goes flies, week by week. I getting bored. I started lose my spirit and hope and I feel so lazy enough to step out from my bedroom.

The first time I set up my plan for mastering this skill faster, I’m fully excited and I wish I could spend every my single day to learn and practice. But now, it isn’t enough 2 month. I started weaken.

Then, I asked to myself.

“Why did I be like this?”

I tried to think harder and I found the answer by checked some symptoms that potentially made me weaken.

I can’t got my focus as well, sometimes I’m so sleepy in the class and the worst is I didn’t excited anymore.

Then, I got this one. A new phrase, it called as “Culture Shock", a stage of stages in the phase when we try to deal and adapt with new culture.

My origin culture is different with Pare’s culture. The way to speak in daily conversation and the way to get and make friend, besides I missing my hometown. I got homesick.

And I have been trying to recover myself, to rebuild my hope and my enthusiasm. I remembered my commitment with the first my promise to myself. I did a lot thing to make better in this culture. However, it isn’t easy because this is first experience far from my home.

And what I did to rebuild up my spirit? To unite jar of hope that has fallen apart.

The first one, when every time I felt so tired. I played some songs that can be trigger me to remember my parent, my family because I surely you will agree with it. Family can be strong reason for you to raise up from your mood and give you backup’s energy.

And I saved many songs that tell about parents such as “Ayah — Seventeen, Kaulah Ibuku — Haddad Alwy”. You can get more in YouTube, but these songs in my playlist.

Every time on my way to go courses places. I listened these song while ride my bicycle and I feel better, stronger and no hopeless again. 🙂

I got my spirit back.

Then, other way. I think it also worked to increase our focus and motivation to learn something new quickly.

What’s it? Be poor! Hahaa.

Yah, because when are stay in this situation you will be limited to waste the time with your money.

You don’t want to join hang out agendas every night, you skip plan to take holiday every weekend so you can maximize your time and attention to learn.

But, it doesn’t mean you can take holiday and hangout at all. 😁

It just for restricting yourself, your desire to spend your money and of course you to something that doesn’t give impacts to your purposes.

So, let’s me to conclude it:

You can give me some additions to this writing based on your experience. So, I can learn more from what you have done as long as a wander.

Thank you..
