It's Not About You

Don Miguel Ruiz's classic, The Four Agreements, is a template for conscious living — yet his core wisdom is essentially what your mother taught, as well as the Golden Rule deconstructed:

1. Be Impeccable with Your Word.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally.
3. Don't Make Assumptions.
4. Always Do Your Best.

For me, the greatest challenge is usually not taking something personally. I resonate with author Marya Mannes' quote: "Women are repeatedly accused of taking things personally. I cannot see any other honest way of taking them." READ THE REST!
