"(…) you have the power to change any area of your life for the better. So where is this power? And how can you use it? We all know that to achieve new results, you need to take new action. But we need to understand that at the heart of every action is a decision. The power of decision is therefore the power of change." (A. Robbins)
Things don't work out right away, sometimes we have to be persistent, sometimes it takes effort and hard work to make plans and dreams come true. This applies, for example, to learning a foreign language: anyone who has prepared for the C2 exam knows how much effort and time is required.
Discovering your mission can be one of the most important events in your life, whether you do the mission during your work or leisure time, or in micro-retirement (which the aforementioned author, T.

"Vzdělávání by měli zastupovat odborníci." (This post is written in English and Czech) In "Psychologia nastolatka" ("Adolescent Psychology") (no. 4/2022, page 77, the magazine is in Polish) we can read the following passage: "(…) education should be represented by experts who understand the psychological mechanisms and neurobiological processes of young people.

The quote in the title of this post comes from page 101 of Carmine Gallo's book "The Storyteller's Secret" (I have my copy in Polish). One can think how to use the knowledge about storytelling (contained e.g. in the above-mentioned book) in the activities of authors, bloggers, but also all who want to educate the audience in some way.
"Almost all the changes we want to make in our lives fall into two categories: either we want to change the way we feel (…) or we want to change our own actions." This quote comes from Anthony Robbins' book 'Letters to a Friend'.
