“The first actionable step is practicing listening in to the way you speak to yourself. I think ultimately it comes down to that. I think, “Listen in.”  And the great news is, if you try to change a habit, however small, it’s an incredibly effective way to turn up the volume. Listen in on what’s going on. Inquire compassionately, curiously, “What am I telling myself? What are my assumptions about myself in this situation? What are my assumptions about what I deserve?” Curiously. Write them down.  Think about whether you’d say that to someone else. And then start thinking about where it came from. Start seeing whether it’s true. Just start curiously inquiring because I think that’s the best thing you’ve got and it’s free.”

-Shahroo Izadi, Interview on Diary of a CEO with Steven Bartlett
