The Lesson: If you often find yourself complaining about other people and the things going on around you, it may time to seek happiness by trying to change yourself first. ‘The Four Agreements’ provide a great starting point, and the author talks about each one in the podcast below. The agreements revolve around how we use our words, how we take things too personally, and how we too often make assumptions.

Notable Excerpt: “Whatever we want to change, first we need to start with ourselves. Happiness only can come from inside of us; it does not really come from outside. If you make an agreement with yourself to be impeccable with your word, just with that intention alone, the truth will manifest through you and clean all the emotional poison that exists within you.”
