The Four Agreements
The Four Agreements are – Be impeccable with your word. Don’t take anything personally. Don’t make assumptions. Always do your best. These four simple rules can change the way you live! The Four Agreements are our bible, and we try to live by it! When you break an agreement, all the power you used to create the agreement come back. It’s an ebb and flow! It is quite simple principals, but they apply to so many things in life. The Four Agreements keep our mind in check. Our words put our subconscious into fruition, into force. Bernadette brings up gossip and how detrimental it can be for the person gossiping and the person who is being talked about.
Next is the 2nd of the 4 agreements, and once you can master it, your life gets easier. Don’t take it personally! Autumn when she moved away from the big city, she expected nicer neighbors. Once Autumn learned that she couldn’t please everyone, and to not take anything personally, she felt free! The 3rd agreement is Autumn’s favorite! Autumn and her children have vivid imaginations, so she often finds herself thinking things up that are not necessarily the truth. Autumn has to remind herself of the 3rd agreement to ground herself and bring her back to reality. The fourth agreement is simple. Always do your best. Try your hardest and you won’t find yourself judging yourself so harshly. Sometimes your best is not very good, but as long as you know it’s your best, you did a good job.

Pt. 2 – Generosity
To catch up on part one, click here! Being generous is so important. Generous people are the sorts of individuals that we like to do favors for. When generous people succeed, we are not jealous. As it relates to persuasion, when you are a generous person at your core, we want to agree with you and believe in you. It behooves you to be generous at all turns! Jason says he was not born naturally generous, he had to make it a habit through practice. Jason says he saw success happening more easily around him when he made generosity a habit. Try leaving every person you interact with a gift. Leave them with a gift in the form of many different ways! Knowledge in the form of a “tip” can be a gift. Generosity takes many forms.
Positivity is ore impactful than negativity. Positive persuasion influences someone’s opinion of you. The character of you being positive will help you in the long run be soulfully persuasive. Change people’s perceptions of you by being positive. Negativity drives people away. Jason talks about the beer test. The beer tests means you will vote for the person you want to sit down and have a beer with. People want approachability and likability. It’s simple! Try to focus this week not on yourself, but on other people. Use generosity by trying to make someone else’s life better.
