Transformative Book: The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz

“Death  is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive  – the risk to be alive and express what we really are.” – don Miguel Ruiz

The message of The Four Agreements is very simple but the impact can be profound. Without a doubt, the agreements, if followed, can transform one’s life.

As you know, simple does not necessarily mean easy, and that’s the case with the agreements.  Because of our ingrained habits, we will be challenged in trying to apply them.  However, with awareness and practice, we can succeed in making these principles a part of our daily life.

Here are the four agreements:

  • 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 reality, 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.

Will you commit to adopting these agreements?  What is one thing you could do today to start?
