The Four Agreements

one of my favorite books  ” the Four Agreements ”

Four Agreements, written by author, Don Miguel Ruiz, talks the four essential beliefs based in Ancient Toltec wisdom that allow us to reach our highest potential and highest level of happiness. Ruiz drives the point home that we are our own worst enemies; we buy in to the lies we tell ourselves through labels others have assigned to us, creating limitation in our own growth. Through making agreements with ourselves, we establish the ability to transform our path to personal freedom, inner-peace, and unconditional love.

The Four Agreements:

1.) Be impeccable with your word. (If you don’t have something nice to say, save it.)
2.) Don’t take anything personally. (The way people treat you says more about them than it does you.)
3.) Don’t make assumptions. (Making assumptions creates inner-conflict and emotional poison. Just chill.)
4.) Always do your best. (If you always do your best, there is no way you can judge yourself.)

Favorite quote: ““It is always better to ask questions than to make an assumption, because assumptions set us up for suffering.”   So So true.
