The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz...will this help you communicate more effectively?
If you haven't read The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, I suggest that you do so at once. Many years ago I worked for a Chiropractor in Manhattan Beach known as "The Body Doc" The absolute BEST!!! Well I dont recall what we were discussing but I do know that He took me to a local book store and bought me the book AND the audio tapes. I am not sure what he had set out to do, but it was positive.
What are the four agreements?
1. Be impeccable with your word. Basically Say what you MEAN and MEAN what you say . Also, avoid speaking words against yourself or gossip. Gossip speaks volumes about gossiper and less about the details of the gossip. *sips tea.
2. Dont take anything personally. This is still a struggle for me. I am a very sensitive being. Realizing how unsupported I feel at work and in within my family... yeah I took it very personal. Then I thought about the previous agreement. Even though its not gossip ...the lack of support speaks volumes of them not so much of me. When you think about it why wouldn't someone who loves you support you? Why wouldn't they be proud of you happy for you maybe even congratulate you? *Shrugs shoulders. The key is realizing that he does not diminish you or what you have accomplished.
3. Don't make assumptions. Now I know I know did I make an assumption with my analogy in the previous agreement? Or am I stating facts as they are known to me? Whether you know something as a fact or not should definitely determine if you speak on it. ASK, QUESTION and state CONCERNS. Dont just assume you knoe the answer. Prime example...My son sent me a text today, "Hey mom can I go to **** house?" He sent that text at 4:36pm but my phone was dead. My next text stated that he left because he didnt want to leave too late. HE MADE A HUGE ASSUMPTION! He assumed that I would have said yes. I explained to him that making assumptions is a major NO-NO! What if I needed him to do something? What if I was going to take him somewhere? Then What? ..Exactly!
4. Always Do your best. I dont do mediocre but I am human and do make mistakes sometimes.
TUNE IN to Facebook Live 4pm this Sunday for s discussion on The Four Agreements, the book and the tools.
One of the most important things to have in any relationship is good communication. Not only is communication necessary to navigate your thoughts, feelings and needs from day to day. It is also important to be able to communicate notions of appreciation, affection and love. Sometimes the most potent way to achieve this is through non-conventional tactics and/or non-verbal forms of communication.
So I ask....What is your love language? Do you speak and receive in the same tone? What is your partners love language? Have either of you communicated what they are? Lets Discuss!!!! Sunday June 2nd 2018 @ 4pm PST ***FACEBOOK LIVE*** replays will be made available through my YouTube channel.
I am super excited besties!!! I am a published Author! TONIGHT we celebrate woo hoo!!!! Come join me at Xen Lounge in Studio City, Ca for a fun night of live music, great food, great drinks and lots of laughter. Come hang out, say hi, take some pics and celebrate.
On this day I will approve the publishing of my book. What is the reason that I choose Mothers Day 2018? I chose this day because I am fulfilling part of my Legacy. I promised my Mother the last time I saw her alive and fully functional that I WILL achieve the goals that I have talked about for so many years. One of them is this book.
On the 5th mothers day after my Mother Viola Patterson passing. I will publish this my book in her honor. **** I know its a busy day for most of us. I just need a minute of your time, Hit going, pop in into the live feed and comment YOU GO TIFF! and enjoy celebrating your wife, girlfriend, Grand-mom and most of all your Mother.
