The Four Agreements Coaching From Within: Jennifer Powers, Life Coach
Pinky’s Estates, Auctions, Retail and Ebay drop off is now open in Keizer at 3816 River Road N. Pinky’s will take in Estates, whole lots of used, vintage and antiques.
We can sell it several different ways. We have a full time Ebay seller on staff, a wonderful store and weekly auctions beginning in November on Thursday nights.
We also offer an indoor garage sale on Saturdays periodically that allows anyone to come in and use our space to sell their garage sale items.
Bill Post is our head auctioneer and the Thursday night auctions will be the highlight of our business as we want the auction to be the place “to be” on Thursday nights. Bill is a longtime radio personality from this area and is an outrageous and fun entertainer that will make the auction a little different from most auctions. With a snack bar and restroom facilities Pinky’s is the place to be on Thursday nights. We are looking for anyone’s items to auction off, and will gladly accept phone calls or emails.
For information call Bill Post at 503-393- 1530 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org

Enter Don Miguel Ruiz. Ruiz, a native of Mexico, is a Shaman dedicated to sharing his understanding of the ancient Toltec wisdom. The Toltec were people of knowledge - scientists and artists who created a society to explore and conserve the traditional practices of their ancestors. The simplicity and elegance of this thinking, a source of great enlightenment and aspiration, provide an inspirational code for life. Don Miguel Ruiz calls these simple ideas ‘The Four Agreements’ and they are best summarized like this:
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 circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
Pick up a copy of The Four Agreements and let its simple, yet highly effective teachings lead you to the answers you need most. Use
the four agreements as a mantra or creed to which you refer daily for encouragement and strength. Or maybe choose one to focus on each week or each month until you feel comfortable before moving on to the next. By simply opening yourself up to these great truths, you have already taken the first step in your pursuit of personal success. Enjoy the rest of the journey.
