The SuperSoul Sunday Podcast

Have you guys heard the SuperSoul Sunday podcast? It is amazing! I absolutely love it. Every time I listen to it, I leave the conversation thinking, THIS IS WHAT I SHOULD BE DOING: inspiring others (so I naturally had to jump on blog and post something really quickly)!

I absolutely love how inspiring each conversation is,  and how recharged I feel professionally and personally when I listen to them.

For example, this past Sunday she had a gentleman named Don Miguel Ángel Ruiz speaking about the Four Agreements, which are as follows:

  1. Be impeccable with your word. (impeccable with your word towards OTHERS and towards YOURSELF)
  2. Don’t take anything personally. (Described in more detail below)
  3. Don’t make assumptions. (OH MAN.  THIS IS SO HUGE IN THE PRACTICE OF LAW)
  4. Always do your best. (I can’t say that I always do my best, sometimes I perform between 60-80%, and its because I feel so LOST, and I want something off of my plate or want to check it off  of the list ASAP– and this is something I really need to work on. When I get into the swing of things, I think this is an area I shine in, but in the early days of figuring things out – I’M NOT PROVIDING MY BEST WORK).

Something that really spoke to me was this:  “DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY“.

I am a woman, okay a girl, LOL. I often struggle with this concept. I dole it out to others so effortlessly, but when someone is unkind towards me (or I perceive unkindness) I get hung up. It sets me back and I feel this illusion of my world caving in on me. Dramatic, I know.

Lately, I try to think of the worst that could happen — and when I think about the worst or that its a moment that will pass, I feel at peace and I feel incredibly calm & I feel like I just want it to happen, so that we can all move on.

Do you experience this?

Well Don Miguel and Oprah, said two things which I loved:

  1. There feelings and judgments towards you is a reflection of them, and where they are coming from and their experiences.
  2. People WILL NOT think like me. The decisions I make are based off of my experiences – and I am the main character in MY story and NOT their story.
  3. If they talk about me – its because at that particular moment they have nothing better to do.

What are your thoughts?

XOXO
