About a month ago my husband bought the book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. After I kept stealing his copy to read it; he bought me my own. That’s a life hack, use your husband’s stuff until he gets you your own. :) Anyway, I really enjoy reading books with my husband, it’s like it is our own cool book club that he doesn’t know he belongs to.
This is one of those books that is life changing. It’s simple, easy to follow, and yet so profound.
I’m going to go over the four agreements and some of the highlights from each agreement. They resonate with me so much that I’ve hung them up around my home. I’ve included a free download so you can be cool like me and hang it up at your home! My husband and I each give this book two thumbs up!
Be impeccable with your word
Speak with integrity
Say only what you mean
Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or gossip about others
Use the power of your word for truth and love
Don’t take anything personally
Nothing others do is because of you
What others do and say is a projection of their own reality
When you are immune to the actions and opinions 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
Do your best
Your best will change from moment to moment, it will be different when you are sick vs. when you are healthy
Under and circumstance, simply do your best
