Why do we tend to listen to others more than to ourselves?

We value statements, comments and the opinion of others to such a degree that we seldom take a moment to listen to our own.

I believe this is due to the accelerated pace at which we are living our lives in today’s societies.

It is simply too fast for us to listen at all to ourselves if it’s not deliberate and with awareness. Instead, we rely on voices from pre-filtered sources that all have first dibs on our attention.

The best way to listen to ourselves is through feelings. And it’s most effective when you ask yourself the appropriate questions.

The next step is then to listen, to feel. And of course, take action.
