“Whenever you are about to find fault with someone, ask yourself the following question: what fault of mine most nearly resembles the one I am about to criticize?” By Marcus Aurelius
Please be gentle and forgiving of yourself when using this one. The point isn’t to find fault in yourself and use it to put yourself down. Rather it can serve to foster a better understanding of yourself and build compassion of others. It’s a pause that will allow you to reflect on why something another does might bother you and an opportunity to change how you do things. This pause allows you time to change an attitude of reaction into a mindset of action.
