The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz2 min read

The Four Agreements is a book that offers a powerful code of ethics that can transform our lives to a new experience of understanding, freedom and happiness. This book can free us from those self-limiting beliefs that rob us of our joy and create needless suffering.

We are not perfect human beings, so why are we always beating ourselves up because we have not quite reached the perfection of who we believe we should be in our own beliefs. This book will set you free of this un-serving habit.

The First Agreement is “Be Impeccable to Your Word.” Your word is who you are. It is what expresses your creative power. Your word is your power to think, express and communicate. Your word can create the events in your life. Your word is your most powerful tool. However, it can act as a double-edged sword as it can create your most wonderful dream or your worst nightmare. Depending upon how it is used, your word can set you free or enslave you for life.

The second is “Don’t Take Anything Personally.” If what others say about you does not serve you, disregard it as it is only their insecurities speaking.

The third is “Don’t Make Assumptions.” We all know what happens when we make assumptions.

The fourth is “Always Do Your Best!”  If you always do your best, over and over again, no matter of how you feel, you will become a master of transformation. This transformation is mastered through repetition. Practice makes the master. Action makes the difference.

If you are impeccable to your word, don’t take anything personally, if you don’t make assumptions and if you always do your best, you will have an awesome life where only you are in control.

I most highly recommend this reading for anyone who is looking to gain more clarity on how to live a more harmonious self-controlled life.
