Thriving Thursday: Always Do Your Best

Thriving Thursday: Always Do Your Best

September 24, 2020

Thriving Thursday’s are “chew-able” episodes, where Nkechi is joined by Gaby Mammone, and asked to share perspectives from her life experiences. You will get a taste of her wisdom and leave with a call to action.

In this episode, Nkechi and Gaby nicely round up the power packed Four-part series of the Book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Today they discuss agreement #4: Always do your best!

They expand on the fourth agreement, by speaking about the importance of pushing ourselves in everything we do and giving it our all under any circumstance.

We are encouraged to challenge and stretch ourselves. Inversely, we were encouraged to try not to judge ourselves too much, when we think we didn’t put in as much as we anticipated on certain days or times in our lives. As giving your best, is also transient and can vary based on different stages or times that we are in our life.

In conclusion, if we always try to do our best, it will become ingrained and be a part of our habits which will lead to a wholesome and more fulfilling life.

Listen in as they share their insights, and how they see this agreement unfolding in their lives.
