“Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.” -Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements
I choose to be a man of my word.
I choose to make promises and agreements only when I sincerely intend to fulfill them. And when I make those commitments, I vow to write them down and create a plan for making them happen. My “no’s” shall be more powerful and my “yes’s” shall be more meaningful.
I choose not to resent or run from those who hold me accountable to the highest standards of integrity. What matters is my self-actualization and I intend to use all experiences as lessons toward that end.
