The Four Agreements

There is always room for improvement.  No matter where you get in life, or how great you are, there is always room for you to become even better.  You should always give 100 percent effort 100 percent of the time and not settle for lest than your best.  With this come many roadblocks that will attempt to deter your success.  It’s important to have faith, to believe in yourself, and to persevere no matter how hard a particular struggle may become. 


Your mind is a powerful tool and is the most dangerous weapon you possess.  The power of positive thinking produces positive action.  You are what you think.  If you don’t like the way you feel, change the way you think.  Try to become a better and more positive person each day and reap the greatness of a rewarding life. 


I came across “The Four Agreements” which I found interesting and very true.  I don’t know where they came from or who created them, but it wasn’t me.  Try to incorporate these agreements in your life.

 The Four Agreements


Be Impeccable with your Word


Speak with integrity.  Say only what you mean.  Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.  Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.


Don’t Take Anything Personally


Nothing others do is because of you.  What others say and do is a projection of their own reality.  When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.


Don’t Make Assumptions


Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want.  Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama.  With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.


Always Do Your Best


Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick.  Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
