- Pay attention to what drives you to speak critically.
- Reflect on a difficulty: How have I treated this difficulty so far? How have I suffered by my own response and reaction to it? What should I let go of? What has to be accepted? What lesson might I learn from the difficulty? What is the hidden value or positive from this situation?
- Listen carefully to the voice in your mind as it is getting ready to make a comment and think to yourself, Why am I saying this?
