We make agreements all the time...
With ourselves, society, others, and any higher power we ascribe to.
“But the most important agreements are the ones you make with yourself. In these agreements, you tell yourself who you are, what you feel, what you believe, and how to behave throughout your life.” (paraphrase of a quote from The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz)
In this episode, buckle up because I’m going to apply the four agreements to how we show up as marketers, content creators, collaborators, and business owners.
The Four Agreements is a book/philosophy by Don Miguel Ruiz and a quick read (to the tune of 138 pages with large text).
I highly recommend checking it out if you want some simple, actionable, and life-changing perspective. It’s packed full of wisdom and serves as a good template for just about anyone who wants to live a better, more honest, conscious, and fulfilling life.
Today, I’m applying it to us as business owners as I show you how to consider the agreements you have with yourself, with your clients, in your marketing, and with others you’re collaborating with.
- What it means to be impeccable with your word
- How to not take things so personally
- Why business is a whole lot better when we don’t make assumptions
- How to always do your best
- And more!
