The 5 Agreements To Make Choices That Lead To Happiness
The main thing to become aware of is that we don’t really see life at all; what we actually see is our filter system, which is composed of our beliefs and values, expectations, and assumptions.
So it is really important to clean up your glasses so that you can see clearly.
The 5 Agreements can help you to get as close as possible to the actual reality of things.
Because they force you to drop your biases, preferences and preconceived notions about things in life.
No doubt it is wise to learn from your experiences — good or bad. But it is of equal importance to not let the past dictate your present too much.
These 5 Agreements are essentially principles you commit yourself to.
When you’re successfully able to apply these 5 agreements in your everyday life, you’ll notice a big shift in your perspective and the way you view the world.
1. Be Impeccable With Your Word
Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you’re immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you’re healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
5. Be Skeptical, But Learn To Listen
Don’t believe yourself or anybody else. Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear. Is it really the truth? Listen to the intent behind the words, and you will understand the real message.
