Because we are afraid to ask for clarification, we make assumptions and believe that we are right about the assumptions; then we defend our assumptions and try to do someone else wrong. It is always better to ask questions than to make a hypothesis, because assumptions make us suffer. Good luck with you too, Marsha! One good thing in time is that they put an end to perfectionism! If you don`t understand something, it`s better for you to ask and be clear than to make a guess. The day you stop making assumptions, you will communicate cleanly and clearly, without the emotional poison. Without pretensions, your word becomes beyond reproach. “In these agreements, you tell yourself who you are, what you feel, what you believe and how you behave. The result of what you call your personality “In all circumstances, always do your best, no more and no less. But remember that your best will never be equal any moment… Your best will sometimes be of high quality, and sometimes it won`t be good. For me, this statement asks not to judge me and to take advantage of the trial.
To forgive myself on days, I`m tired and I want to take a break, or when my mood is off and I can`t concentrate. On days when I am frustrated and exhausted, I wonder, under the circumstances, I do what I can best, and if the answer is yes, all negative energy escapes me. I stop judging myself, and the sudden appearance of positive energy actually allows me to improve even more right now. So what is at stake in the four agreements? The agreements deal with four promises that we must make ourselves to feel free from the pressure of society, and we hold ourselves more often. Knowledge of the four agreements comes from a lifestyle prescribed by men and women in southern Mexico, called Toltec. The book is clear when it is said that Toltec`s knowledge is not a religion. It is most pertinently described as a way of life characterized by the voluntary accessibility of happiness and love. Moreover, my purpose in writing this article is not to confess religious doctrines, nor is it an endorsement of the Toltecs. My goal is simply to convey the practical application of the Four Accords to relieve us of the pressure we often put inside and outside the studio. All your life, you`ve been training to be what you think you are right now.
You practiced until it became automatic. And if you start practicing something new, if you change what you believe, your whole life will change.
