On camera, Sanela Osmonovic recalls one of the most important lessons that a yoga lifestyle taught her for healing her heart. It’s simply, “Don’t Take Anything Personally”.
I’ve found that one of the most exhausting things I can do in love and business is to take things personally. When somebody judges me, hurts my feelings, gossips about me, says something cruel about my life, decisions or business, or doubts me, I am vulnerable to take these things personally.
- Maybe somebody is taking digs at you – either through words, passive aggression, or a smear campaign of your reputation as a mother, wife, or business woman.
- Perhaps somebody has rejected you and you are tempted to think it’s because of “you”.
You can reverse engineer so much of the pain we feel in our lives back to “taking things personally”. Honestly…. this is the HARDEST thing for me to remember, myself!
Just today before I wrote this challenge, I cried because of something hurtful that was said to me. Last night I tossed and turned for hours over something that was said online about my business.
But at the end of the day I trust myself and my actions. Most of all, I trust my WORTH.
Don Miguel Ruiz’ The Four Agreements is one of the most POWERFUL books I’ve ever read – and I reread it at least twice annually because it has revolutionized my life and business.
Review the Four Agreements here below and, if you can – read Don Miguel Ruiz’ incredible book. (It’s perhaps a mere two-hour listen on Audible – very quick!)
In today’s challenge, consider each of these agreements. How can you adhere to The Four Agreements to eliminate needless suffering in your own life?
Do you take things personally? Are you hurting others by shying away from stating the truth or sharing your true feelings?[/MM_Member_Decision]
