Personal Development Wisdom: This is one of my very favorite personal development reads. I go back to this every so often to remind myself of the lessons. Personal development is HUGE when it comes to dealing with issues of low self esteem, self confidence, or negative thinking. Some times you just have to get out of your own head. Stop being the one who’s putting you into that funk your in and rise above all the self depreciating vibes you throw at yourself. And instead learn some valuable life lessons to help you treat yourself and the world around you better. It’s a key ingredient for ANY kind of success! When you treat others better, give respect and care, you will inherently feel better within 💛
The Four Agreements
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.
2. Don’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 won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. 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.
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.
