SUCCESS LISTENING ACTIVITY-3: meaning and examples

Good morning. I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Today I wanted to suggest another short video about success from It is very similar to last week's selection. In fact, it is the continuacion, some years later, of Richard St. John's talk about what leads to success.

This time Mr. St. John explains that success is not a "one-way street" but a "continuous journey". (If you stop striving for success, you will fall again.) I also recommend reading the section "About Richard St. John" to the right of the video.

Remember our suggestions for watching these videos:

STEP 1) Watch 1-3 times without subtitles to see what you can understand. (Watch difficult-to-understand segments more if you would like.)

STEP 2) Watch the video 1-3 times more, with English subtitles.

STEP 3) If there is something that you still don't understand, activate the Spanish subtitles, or the subtitles of another language that you understand better than English (Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese...) and watch one more time.

If you really want to improve your English, you should be doing listening activities (like this one) every day, or almost every day. TED videos have very interesting content, so you can practice your English while learning about all sorts of interesting topics.

Have a nice day!
