Four Agreements

Four Agreements July 9, 2013

This summer if you are looking for a good summer read which speaks truth with a capital “T”, my suggestion is to go buy Don Miguel Ruiz’s book entitled THE FOUR AGREEMENTS.  Below is a summary of the agreements.

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

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 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.

********Impeccable means “without sin” and a sin is something you do or believe that goes against yourself.
