I consider agreements to this effect to be “contracts that you have with yourself”. Imagine these personal agreements such as affirmations – powerful statements that can enable you and lead you towards your goals. If your conversations and thoughts are negative, then the agreements you have with yourself can destroy you and anchor you in your past. For many years, I have striven to live according to the “five chords” that I have taken from these two remarkable and very recommendable books: the four chords of Don Miguel Ruiz and The Power of the Now by Eckhart Tolle. I found that once these agreements were internalized and truly understood, my emotional, spiritual and physical well-being progressed. Personal and professional growth always begins with consciousness. Use the power of your word towards truth and love. Our beliefs are usually shaped and influenced by these sources: find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate as clearly as possible with others to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With this agreement alone, you can completely change your life. You have a moment, this moment. The past is behind you, the future has not yet arrived. Being present is powerful.
Be there now. Be quiet. The next moment is already on the way. The past does not change. Focus your attention on today, this moment, and free yourself. That is why I encourage you today and every day to take these five agreements into consideration and then to live afterwards, if they are in line with your convictions and values. Your best will change from moment to moment. It will vary depending on your energy level and health at any given time. Do your best in all circumstances and you will avoid self-judgment and regret..
