The Four Agreements
The Four Agreements are:
1. Be impeccable with your word
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions.
4. Always do your best.
Here are four principals to live by but require a great deal of practice in our daily lives. This is a book written by Don Miguel Ruiz that describes these principals and actually living them and applying them is the hard part! He describes principal # 1 to speak with integrity, to say what you mean and mean what you say and avoid gossip. Principal # 2 he explains nothing others do is because of you! Taking things personally is the ultimate selfish act because it is saying the world revolves around us. On to principal # 3 find the nerve to ask questions and communicate what you really want. Communicate as clearly as you can with others to avoid misunderstandings. You know what they say about assumptions! And lastly principal # 4 in any event, simply do your best! This book is a great read.
