Mindset, above all things should be the first beast to tackle when making a positive change in your life. One of the many books I gift to people is “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. This book made a huge impact in my life. It made me realize my errors in judgment and in my actions.
The last 2 years as a Health & Fitness Instructor at the New York City Fire Academy, I continue to use the knowledge obtained from this book to help the Probationary Fire Fighters adapt and adhere to the grueling 18 weeks of training. I start my Physical Training sessions with the Four Agreements and make it relatable to them.
1.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.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
