Don't Make Assumptions
This episode of Mere Mortals Unite explores a super power solution contained in the book, The Four Agreements, by Don Miquel Ruiz. The four agreements are simple, not easy and their impact is deep.
This episode looks at the agreement of Don’t Make Assumptions. When you make assumptions you’re not dealing with a situation in its true form. You may even convince yourself that your assumption is the truth. This agreement is closely tied to the agreement of not taking anything personally. The two combined are a frequent cause of misunderstandings and conflict.
You must be more aware of the information you process about yourself and the world around you, so that you can live a more successful life with less hassles and more success. Taking deliberate action on a consistent basis is how you live life to its fullest.
