The Four Agreements by Don Ruiz “Whatever happens around you, don’t take it personally… Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves.” 🧘🏿♂️
Sometimes it’s the most simple words that have the most impact on us. Don gives us 4 key agreements to help us live a life with more meaning.
🔑 “Be impeccable with your word.” The power of words is one of the most powerful things we have. Whether it be self-talk or talking with a stranger, each word that comes into your head & out of your mouth, has the power to create events in your life & others. Both positive & negative. -
🔑🔑 “Don’t take anything personally.” Are the words that someone says to you, about you or that persons character? Anything someone says to you, compliment or negative, is a mirror of theirself & their beliefs. Everyone has their own belief & what truly matters is your own & how you feel about yourself.
🔑🔑🔑 “Don’t make assumptions.” What’s crazy about assumptions is that they’re stories we make in our heads & we believe them as if they’re true. It’s so easy to fall in this trap after we calculate a whole story in our head & come up with our logical explanation for someone’s actions. Instead of assuming we should put our pride aside & be asking questions to know the truth.
🔑🔑🔑🔑 “Always do your best” When you do your best, you feel your best. Similar to a workout, the feeling of doing your best is a feeling of pride that pushes you to want more, to do more & achieve more. & that’s exactly what we’re on earth for. To do God’s work & to be the best version of ourselves.
This book’s teachings are so simple yet if you apply them your life, they can completely transform your life. A must read for everybody ✨

I have been reading this book ⬆️ from a past couple of weeks. And it changed my way of thinking to be honest. I never thought that i would be reading self motivational books in million years. I was more of rom-com kind of a person. A love story with a bit of humour always attracted me. But after having abdullah i went through a really hard phase. First baby blues or postpartum depression as it is commonly known and then self doubt and low self esteem issues. Alhamdulillah that phase is over but it did leave behind some marks. Anyways, one day i was just thinking about ordering some books and came across this one. ⭐
Its a very famous book with over 15 million copies sold and many of you must have read it I am sure. It is a must read no doubt. I always loved reading books. They were my escape from reality. When ever i was feeling really low or stressed i would start reading. And it would make me forget about my problems temporarily. But this book tells me how to handle reality and deal with anxiety, anxiouness, low self esteem and many more. It was no doubt a life changing book for me. I even went as far as underlining some of my favourite lines (which i never did) and read them again and again just because they relaxed me. ☄ In short this book talks about doing good and being positive and explains some of the ways to do this.
The above extract is my favourite one. 💕

Ciao Angelo Mio, eccomi di nuovo qui a scriverti. Oggi volevo raccontarti questi fantastici giorni a Parigi; è stato il viaggio più bello ed emozionante che abbia mai fatto. Per prima cosa volevo raccontarti di Disneyland, ricordi quante volte ti dicevo che sarebbe stato un sogno andarci? Ecco finalmente sono riuscita a realizzare questo sogno, con tutto il team, con tutti i miei amici, è stato davvero extraordinario. La cosa più extraordinaria però sono stati quei 2 giorni nel palazzetto, anche li tra alti e bassi, ma vedere 20.000 persone li dentro a formarsi per un unico sogno, un unico obiettivo, mi ha fatta sognare, mi ha fatto capite che posso farcela e ce la farò. Ti feci una promessa e sai che la porterò a termine. Grazie Angelo Mio per avermi presentato questa occasione e grazie HERBALIFE NUTRITION per averci fatto ricominciare a sognare, e per lo più in grande.

LETTING YOUR INNER MEAN GIRL WIN!?
I’m known for burying my head in a gory true crime book and the idea of entering the “self help” section of Dymocks never appealed to me. Like that Sex and the City episode when Charlotte was too scared to enter the self help section in the book shop, and there’s women crying on the floor!😂
Well.. who’d have thought this would change!?🤷♀️
Mastering your Mean Girl by Melissa Ambrosini has altered my mindset to approach situations as simple as choosing love over fear. Eg. Waking up in the morning thinking, “ugh dammit I do NOT want to deal with today” to “WOO new day, there’s bound to be a few shit storms at work, but let’s do this!” Considering every guy/girl at some point has let their inner saboteur win in some stupid situation, the book shows examples on how to tell that inner bitch to pipe down, because I’m going to do it MY way!
I’ve always had a realistic outlook in life, I don’t like to fluff things up and I prefer raw constructive criticism over sappy words. Hoff has called me the “queen of procrastination” for the last 5 years and he ain’t wrong! Melissa has without a doubt played a part in my current business goals and can you believe it.. I’ve actually stuck to it with ZERO procrastination! Take THAT mean inner Sophie!✊
Send me recommendations on your business/motivational books! I’d love to find a new read!

Easily my favorite read of the year. At an emotional low, it steered my mindset towards a better direction.
What’s your favorite book this year? 📚🍎
My beautiful sister bought me this book today. I’ve been battling A&D for a while now, unfortunately only those of you who have experienced it will understand me when I say how much I hate what it does to you socially. My sister has and always will be, my best friend...I can talk to her about anything and everything, with an open heart and trust that she would never judge me for what I say...usually, but since the A&D hit me, just sending a simple text feels like a questionably hard task. But she hasn’t given up on me and I love the fact I know she never will, she gives me space when I need it, she doesn’t make me feel guilty for cancelling plans (that’s a big one btw if you have a friend suffering with it) and is always, always there for me trying to make me better, even when I’m not trying myself. I basically just wanted to say thank you @cassie.legrand
, little gestures like this remind me why I love you so much 💖.

DO SELF-HELP BOOKS REALLY HELP❓
1️⃣Only if you choose the right kind. You’ve got to narrow down your choices based on which area you’d like to work on- success, empowerment, relationships, love, spiritual, etc.
2️⃣SELF HELP OR HELP YOURSELF. No matter what anybody says or writes, it won’t help you unless you are ready to help yourself. You should have the will to actually change yourself for good.
3️⃣Make the effort. Just mere reading of the guide isn’t going to make a difference. To change your thought process, your behaviour and your lifestyle, you will have to make some efforts.
4️⃣TAKE NOTES, set reminders, read affirmations and just a 5 minutes read during the day can go a long way.
5️⃣Take it slow, reflect on every chapter, absorb the information and actually try to apply the methods. Notice your progress. Even after finishing, pick it up again after some time and notice if you still recall it or not. 🌸🌸🌸🌸
Let me tell you a secret. You already know everything that is written in self-help book. It is not like you will read, some ultimate truth of life will unravel itself and then magically you will become enlightened. Such books serve as reminders of the things we forget from time to time because we are not in awareness. It helps us bring information from our subconscious to our conscious. 🌸 Next time you read a self-help, take notes, remind yourself daily and try to actually apply the methods and above all, be patient🌸

Tips appreciated 👉🏼 I started reading 9 books 📚and am trying to figure out the best way to read them all. ❓Do I pick one at a time and finish it OR read from the book I’m in the mood for that day? 🤷🏻♀️❓
Disclaimer-I need to read more and make time for it but I don’t. 🙇🏻♀️ #committoreadmore
Hey Friends!! It's Garima..👉😊 I just want to tell u a funny think that when I saw this book first time in my daddy's rake.... I really laughed that what a foolish book my daddy's keeping 😂😂😛 ...

And continue to read this... Really interesting book it is...."KISS THAT FROG" Mr. Brian Tracy told that our problems and negative situations is dirty frog -if we kiss it- means we accept our negative situations and problems and handle it positively and keep patient - so it will be convert into success and luxurious life bcoz some thinks are coming for that we get stronger and experience these negative situations for a successful life.....

Infamous anti-guru @mcsnugz
says there’s a moment in everyone’s life’s where they realise that they seriously need to get their *ahem* stuff together. Mine happened yesterday.
I had a whole day of not particularly doing much except driving around a lot; and now I was late to my sister’s wedding eve eve evening at an Airbnb across town. While at a red light, I look at my passenger seat, and saw a McDonalds bag from lunch time. “If Mum sees that, she’s definitely going to say something.” I thought, “I can barely fit into my bridesmaids dress as it is... I’ll put it in the glove compartment.” Except there was one small problem. When I opened the glove compartment, wrappers and packages burst out. Why? Because when I had done a load of driving back in June and July I had stored all my snacks there. And it had been left untouched since then.
And that was the moment that I realised just how much I needed to get my *ahem* stuff together.
So how will I be moving forward? Small manageable chunks that I can slowly, but surely, cross off my list. Here are my first three steps:
1. Start eating healthier, veggie food when I’m out and about so I have inspiration and guidance when I start cooking at home.
2. Take my car to the car wash this Sunday cause by god does it need it.
3. Start planning my meals each morning, and include a lot of it, so I don’t get tempted by the thought of salty fries and chicken nuggets.
Wish me luck,
