  1. How wonderful this podcast is!

    I have had a lot of false starts on my journey of self improvement, and recently I’ve been giving it another go. I think the “me and them” mentality has been one of the biggest hurdles in my past attempts. I listened to this yesterday on my way to work, and it really helped. I work in a restaurant as a cook. It can be very high stress; people make a lot of mistakes which can make your job harder, and therefore it’s very easy to become fixated on the shortcomings of others and let them anger you. When I felt myself falling into that familiar pattern, I used the technique you described of picturing that person experiencing pure happiness. And it really helped! It really blunted the edge of my anger and helped me to sympathize in a situation where I normally wouldn’t.

    Thank you for doing what you do.
