Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say or do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others you won’t be the victim of needless suffering. ~Don Miguel Ruiz
In part two of this study of The Four Agreements, we focus on not taking things personally.
Taking things personally will end a marriage, crush a career, destroy your bank account, your business, and your health. It’s that powerful.
What most people fail to realize is that taking things personally is rooted in fear.
When you are afraid, it’s because you’re believing in a lie. This is not necessarily your fault, it was given to you early in life, before you were able to critically think for yourself. In that moment you became closed off and you weren’t able to let the truth in.
In order for us to get to a place where we no longer take things personally, we must find out what our core fears and angers are. That is the awareness you’ll need to make a change.
In short, mastery of this agreement can immediately change your life for the better.
