QUESTION WHAT YOU’RE BELIEVING. We’re a slave to our thoughts. And most of the time, they’re not true. “This person doesn’t care about me. This person did this to me. I’m not worthy of love.” Our thoughts create suffering. So how can we stop believing them? On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the ego and how to investigate our thoughts with the creator of The Work: Byron Katie. Byron Katie is a speaker and author who teaches a method of self-inquiry known as "The Work". She is the founder of Byron Katie International, an organization that includes The School for the Work and Turnaround House. TIME describes her as "a spiritual innovator for the 21st century.” Byron walks us through her four questions that help us investigate the stories we tell ourselves.
