On my refrigerator, among the clutter of magnets, photos, and my neglected grocery list, is a small piece of paper with the phrase Choices & Consequences printed out. It’s been on my refrig for over a year and is my constant reminder that almost every decision in my life boils down to those words. As I was reading Don Miguel Ruiz’s 1997 best seller The Four Agreements, I was stunned when I came to page 99 and found the following: “Your life is the manifestation of your dream; it is an art. And you can change your life anytime if you aren’t enjoying the dream. Dream masters create a masterpiece of life; they control the dreams by making choices. Everything has consequences and a dream master is aware of the consequences.” So little did I realize when I stuck that piece of paper on my refrig, that I already had an inkling and a basic concept of The Four Agreements. Don Miguel Ruiz describes four principles, or agreements, to practice in order to create love and happiness in your life. Adopting and committing to these agreements is simple. Actually living and keeping these Four Agreements might be one of the toughest things you will ever do but can also be one of the most life altering things you will ever do. The Four Agreements are Be Impeccable With Your Word, Don’t’ Take Anything Personally, Don’t Make Assumptions, and Always Do Your Best. Sounds so easy and simplistic, right? Join Life Coach Jenn A. Nocera of Formula for Excellence and me for a lively discussion of the agreements. After the interview, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for additional information.
