Here is another way to unleash real power.

Dear International Friend,

The book “The Four Agreements” by Michael Ruiz is a whopper of a read. The front jacket cover is worththe fee that charges for this book. Letme share what it says:

The Four Agreements

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.

Don't take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.

Don't make assumptions, Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

Always do your best. Your best is going to change from moment to moment, it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstances, simply do your best. And you will avoid self judgment, self abuse and regret.

This sounds strangely like the advice that is in the book, “The Millionaire Mind“.

The author of the Four Agreements, Miguel Ruiz, is an American M.D. and aToltec shaman who hasbeen given the responsibility to bring forth knowledge from the ancients. (as Merri and I have)

Money is such a small part of wealth (see my message to understand this better), yet most investors spend so much energy focusing entirely on the arithmetic, that they miss acquiring all the important assets. They miss balance. The message from the shamans, Aymara, Toltecs, Aztecs, Incans, Olmecs and the rest, are simply messages of balance.

This is one reason why we have seminars in Ecuador so we can immerse ourselves in this deep heritage of balance and the equilibrium of the equator ! We hope to see you there.

Until next message, Good investing!
