Points to Be Aware Of: This is good advice to help you become less responsive, defensive and retaliatory, but keep it in balance. While everyone has their own prejudices and there is no real objectivity, you can, by never taking anything personally, your ability to see your own negative patterns and biased ideas, really limit and work towards the development of healthier models and lucid thoughts. As Scott Peck says in The Road Less Traveled: «The problem of distinguishing between who we are and what we are not responsible for in this life is one of the greatest problems of human existence.» This path begins with the four agreements. These are new ways of life that you can voluntarily follow. These agreements are: Do you ask yourself what ancient Mesoathsis beliefs might perhaps teach you about business and life in general? Well, you`re ready for a surprise 🎓 and better news: on this page, you can read some of the best lessons I`ve learned from the four chords, in a quick fun summary! Let`s start with the first lesson… That`s how everyone puts on a mask and starts living in a dream. We believe in all these things and we live by all these rules that we have never stopped thinking about. Don Miguel calls all these beliefs and rules «agreements,» because we for these beliefs and rules were part of our AGREE dream. (But of course, the kids always agree, so it`s not your fault.) Children believe everything adults say. That`s why most kids believe in Santa Claus.

They are not stupid, they are just very confident. So we took up most of our deepest beliefs, when we couldn`t really think for ourselves. Beliefs about who we are, what the world is and the right way to live. The way we make assumptions is because we believe we know what others think and feel. We think we know their point of view, their dream. We forget that our convictions are only our point of view, based on our belief system and personal experience, which have nothing to do with what others think and feel. We assume that everyone judges us, abuses us, harasses us and blames us for the way we do it ourselves. That is why we oppose us before others have the opportunity to refuse us. If we think that way, it will be difficult to be in the world.
