Don Miguel Ruiz wrote a book called The Four Agreements. I was gifted this book about seven years ago, and it was one of several things that got me through a tough time. But I always come back to the four agreements you make with yourself:
- Be impeccable with your word
- Don’t take anything personally
- Don’t make assumptions
- Always do your best
Whether or not I think about these things, I always carry them with me. And that last one, always do your best, is a call to action each and every day. Your best may change from day to day. You might not have as much to give today as you did yesterday. But still do your best.
That’s why each morning is a new baseline for your life, and you can make anything happen. One day at a time.
