I have also found that by making four simple assumptions in our lives we can immediately begin leading a more balanced, integrated, powerful life.
They are simple–one for each part of our nature–but I promise you that if you do them consistently, you will find a new wellspring of strength and integrity to draw on when you need it most.
1) For the body–assume you’ve had a heart attack; now live accordingly.
2) For the mind–assume the half-life of your profession is two years; now prepare accordingly.
3) For the heart -assume everything you say about another, they can overhear; now speak accordingly.
4) For the spirit–assume you have a one-on-one visit with your Creator every quarter; now live accordingly.
