Three Gatekeepers

From Suze Orman in “How to Push Past Your Money Fears Once and for All

“I told her about an incredible teacher I studied with years ago, who taught me a simple method for measuring the integrity of my actions. Imagine three gatekeepers standing between you and the actions you want to take or the things you want to purchase, or even the things you want to say. Each of these gatekeepers represents one question:

                 Is it kind?
                   Is it necessary?
                     Is it true?

To this day, I check in with these gatekeepers when I’m unsure about my course of action. And if it doesn’t pass one of the gatekeepers—if the purchase isn’t really necessary or the word isn’t kind or the action true—I know I need to stop and rethink what I’m doing.”
