There are four simple assumptions that we can make to begin leading a balanced, integrated and powerful life immediately.
For the body- assume you’ve had a heart attack; now live accordingly.
For the mind- assume the half-life of your profession is two years; now prepare accordingly.
For the heart- assume everything you say about another, they can overhear; now speak accordingly.
For the spirit- assume you have a one-on-one visit with your Creator every quarter; now live accordingly.
