    My friend Sunil Bali from the United Kingdom recently shared this message on his blog. I loved it so much; I asked if I could share it. He said, “Yes.” So here it is.

    During our lifetime, we spend more time speaking to ourselves than we do to any other person.

    Harvard psychologist Shawn Achor says that the most important conversations we ever have, are the ones that we have with our self. Primarily, because the relationship we have with our self, influences the relationships that we have with others.

    Achor’s research for his bestselling book “Before Happiness” reveals that we often speak to ourselves worse than we speak to our worst enemy.

    Achor asks, “Ever loved someone so much that you would do anything for them? Well how about making that someone yourself?”

    My advice?

    Given its universal importance, slap a mental preservation order on your mind, such that no changes can be made to its pristine, unadulterated nature without the consent of your soul.

    And remember, that any conversation that costs you your peace of mind is too expensive.

    Check out his blog. Thank you, Sunil
