Good morning


Today is Motivational Monday. It is also Labor Day in China. So, most people are having a day off. Happy Labor Day to everyone.


I heard a quote once that said, “Go where you are celebrated; not where you are tolerated.” ‘Tolerated’ means ‘to put up with.’ It is not something that is pleasurable or desirable. I would say it this way, “Go where people like you and are happy with you being with them. Stay away from situations and people who don’t appreciate you, who don’t like you.


Recently, a lady wrote me a message and said, “Michael, learning English gives me a headache. I feel very unhappy learning English. What to do?” I said, “Stop learning English. In fact, don’t do anything that you aren’t required to do if it makes you sick and unhappy. “


I’m not sure what she wanted me to tell her, so, I told her the truth. If you aren’t required to do something and it makes you miserable, the answer is easy. Stop doing that thing no matter what it is.


Today, as you practice your English with this free lesson, also realize that in saying the things I put here, you are also making choices for your own life. No one can make you happy except you.


Practice


I will go where people love and appreciate me.

I will choose to not go where others don’t like me and don’t appreciate me.

I make my own happiness.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

I am in control of my own happiness.

I choose to do what makes me happy and healthy.


That’s all for today.

Goodbye for now.

I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day!
