Your best is going to change from moment to moment, it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
The fourth agreement appears to be easier said than done "ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST". How often do we feel as if we could have done better? Honestly we probably could have done better if we were eating and conditioning ourselves to meet and overcome what life throws at us. How can we do our best if we not feeding our mind, body and souls the best of the best on a regular basic?
We can only feel bad about the outcome of our production if we do KNOW that there was something more that we could have done such as trained a few more minutes each day, studied a few more minutes each day, stopped eating seconds or whatever it was that we were dealing with. See the above agreement is true as long as we know we did our best, period.
When God gave me the brand "Fight 4 Life" NO EXCUSES, I had to really grow to understand that as long as I have an excuse or accept excuses I would never make any CHANGES in my life, which is crucial to our ability to make positive progress.
Let us be honest with ourselves; are we truly working on that which we say that we working on? If I was to monitor your routine for just one day would I walk away saying that your actions bear witness to your words? Be honest ARE WE DOING OUR BEST FULL TIME OR PART TIME? Let us start to manage our time better and let us also start working on how we think, what we eat, what we listen to and most importantly, let us start to believe that we can ------------- (YOU FILL IN THE BLANK).
We have covered the four agreements if you have not already, go back and write down ALL the agreements and place them where you will see them on a daily basis. Do not look at them, APPLY THEM. We sit on information that can improve our lives and yet we're suffering on a daily. Is that not insane? Let us challenge ourselves to do something different this week, let us take a step towards improving our health, our thinking, our eating habits, anything that will improve YOUR LIFE.
More next issue God willing.
