Key: Mind and Word

As a staff years ago in a Psychiatric Hospital in California, I met a patient that changed my life and made me start thinking about the power of the mind.  The patient suggested “the four agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz to me. The author 4 key points hinges on words. The book highlights the following values. “Be impeccable with your word, Don’t take anything personally, Don’t make assumptions, Always do your best.”

The mind is your battleground. It’s the place where the greatest conflict resides. It’s where half of the things you thought were going to happen, never did happen. But if you allow these thoughts to dwell in your mind, they will succeed in robbing you of peace, joy, and ultimately your life. You will think yourself into a nervous breakdown, into depression, and into defeat. Because you are what you think. And you can’t change anything if you can’t change your thinking. A beautiful day, and thus a beautiful life, always begins with a beautiful mindset. When you awake each morning, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy. Breathe onto the bathroom mirror, just to see how amazing your breath looks. The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one. Let’s act life as a blessing.
