My dog looked at me this morning and said (if she could have uttered the words), this 7 years sure went by fast! She is right, 2010 is almost over.
This whole year, I have been trying to practice the 4 agreements, both in my personal, as well as professional life and hope to master it in the coming yearâ€“ If you do not know what the 4 agreements are, I highly recommend the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz,Â which can beÂ purchased or borrowed fromÂ your local library - here is a linkÂ to find it on the internetÂ -Â Â Â http://www.amazon.com/Agreements-Practical-Personal-Freedom-Toltec/dp/B000K1P66W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1292609023&sr=8-2Â Although not as easy to adhere to as I want, every time I follow these agreements, I feel and do much better, no matter the issue at hand. I strive to make these agreements a permanent part of my life and hope you find them useful.
Agreement 1 - 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.
Agreement 2 - Donâ€™t take anything personally - Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you wonâ€™t be the victim of needless suffering.
Agreement 3 - Donâ€™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.
Agreement 4 - 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.
Wishing you a happy holiday season and a Brilliant New Year ahead.
