A Permanent Reminder
This is my version of "wear your heart on your sleeve", inspired by the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. These principles have been fundamental in my growth in all levels and more so recently with series of challenging events. I wanted a permanent reminder to always follow these rules for a happy, balanced and purposeful life.
Speak with Integrity. That is to say what I mean and mean what I say with the actions to show it. My word is sacred; my actions are a representation of who I am.
Take Nothing Personal. Avoid the drama and unnecessary suffering. It is being able to accept other people's opinions without affecting my feelings because It's not about me, it's about them and their own views and beliefs of the world they live in.
Make No Assumptions. Not to jump into conclusions without asking the right questions for clarity and understanding. Peace of mind comes from asking the right questions if something is not clear rather than making your own assumptions.
Always Do My Best. Nothing more , nothing less, but doing my best in everything I do.
Each of these principles have come up one way or another in my life. When I follow these principles, my life has purpose and direction. When I don't follow these principles, there is hell to pay.
In everything I say or do, I ask myself:
Did I speak with Integrity?
Am I taking this personal?
Was that an assumption, or do I need to ask for clarification?
Did I do my best?
