The Fifth Agreement
Instructor: Amy Tucker
Youth just like a river going to ocean, and never coming back. Before the river move in to the ocean, it issues the final roar. Time back to five years ago, the first time I was landing in this beautiful country. I was having a lot of dreams, and though I would have a big success in my new university; however the things was not going to the right that I was thinking. I was a student in the program of the Respiratory Therapy, and I finished my first year courses. After I finished my courses, I became vanity, blindness, and relaxation. Last fall semester, I backed to university, I cannot follower the courses anymore, and I ...view middle of the document...
For example, the speaking is kinds of way to communication with each other’s. Just like the first agreement: Be impeccable with your word. How to build your word is very important for communication comfortably, “You were programmed to deliver a message, and the creation of that message is your greatest art”(28). A good speaker could make a communication easier and increase the goodwill of others. Using the power of your word in the direction of truth and loves, “the word, as a symbol, has the magic and power of creation because it can reproduce an image, an idea, a feeling, or an entire story in your imagination. Just hearing the word bores can reproduce an entire image in your mind. That`s the power of a symbol” (35). Learning is just beginning of the life, and most important is that we should use our life experience to understand other people`s words, “remember, you are the creator of your own life story” (39).
After learning to do something, we should try to do it to improve ourselves. When you try to do something, I think we should try it best. I was failed my courses, because I was not try my best. I always regret if I try my best on it, maybe I have different situation now. In my opinion, people should do right things on right time, “ when the brain is awake, there is a material frame that makes us perceive things in linear way; when the brain is asleep, there is no frame, and dream has the tendency to change constantly”(42). People has their own dreams, and they are trying on that, so be yourself, when you are immune to opinions and action of others, you won`t be the victim of needless suffering. The fifth agreements told me that Don`t take anything personally. It`s right, if you want to do something you should focus on it and try your best to come true your dream. “ the story you are dreaming today is not the same story that you were dreaming yesterday, or even half an hour ago”(47). Be stronger and smarter, when you are working on your dream.
Failure is the mother of success, that`s the truth I always believe in. If you do not know what the failure is, you will never know what the success is. The third agreement: Don`t make Assumptions. To face the failed is important things for you, and then you will have uncommon experience in your life. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. “The message is already distorted, but this is just beginning. We can say, It is a stupid chair, and I think that whoever sits in the chair might become stupid also”(59). You should accept failed, for some time failed is good things for you. When I was failed, I study more things then I lost. Believe yourself, and find the reason of the failure is most important. “Then perhaps what you believe about yourself is just as full of superstition as the beliefs of those people long ago. Just imagine if humans from seven or eight centuries in the future could see what most of us believe about...
