Revolutionary Agreements is a delightful, practical guide to living a positive life. The book reveals principles tens of thousands have used worldwide to create greater inner peace and fulfillment—whether dealing with the common challenges of marriage and parenthood, effectively managing high-performance work teams, or contributing to improved community and international relations. Marian Head brings these agreements to life with examples, real-life stories at work, home and in the world, and explorations culled from her 30 years of facilitating personal and organizational excellence worldwide.
The book opens with an invitation by the author to join her in a revolution to create a positive world of positive lives, despite today’s prevailing paradigms of negativity. The twelve agreements she offers as tools to effect this revolution are simple, practical and profound, and are organized within three unifying principles: Truth (to be who I am); Acceptance (to accept others for who they are); and Gratitude (to appreciate the gift of this moment).
Twelve easy-to-read chapters show how to apply the Agreements in any situation to reduce unwanted drama and increase inner peace. Each chapter puts its Agreement into larger perspective with "Words of Wisdom," selections of quotations ranging from ancient wisdom to modern insights, followed by a "Focus on Today" section of practical exercises designed to help the reader apply that Agreement immediately—the perfect combination of inspiration and practical guidance.
