When we need to decide upon something which is very important for us and there is a mental dialogue regarding the dilemmas involved with the decisions we automatically switch to our native language as we are most comfortable in it. The moment we change the language of our inner dialogue to other language the problems becomes concise, precise and rational. Try it!
