The Four Agreements

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
