I’m not the most educated person when it comes to ancient spiritual philosophies and teachings.
But I think they’re fascinating when I learn about them.
This is exactly what I thought when I read The Four Agreements, one of the best known books on self-mastery.
So when I got the chance to interview the son of the man who wrote that book, I jumped on it.
I knew Don Miguel Ruiz Jr. would have powerful insight of his own on these same topics.
And I was right.
Not only did he grow up being taught the powerful mindsets outlined in that famous book, but his grandmother taught him the Toltec spiritual traditions of his ancestors.
He has taken all of these teachings and built a career from explaining them in every day terms for modern people to understand.
In our interview for The School of Greatness Miguel took some of the hardest questions to answer and gave me some of the best answers I’ve ever heard.
We talked about how to take off the masks that cover our true identity to others, how to love unconditionally, and how to change the world for the better.
That and so much more is waiting for you in the wisdom of Don Miguel Ruiz Jr in Episode 358.
