This is the book I read years ago and I kept in mind all of these agreements until this day.
This is just a testimonial that I am happy to give. Testimonial that no one asked me to give. I learned these agreements by implementing them in life through constant reminding myself, through self analyzing and through mistakes. And after years I can tell you, I have been happier since.
The four agreements - don miguel ruiz's code for life
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.
(Sometimes it happens, someone said something or looked at you in a weird way! And you make an assumption that he/she doesn’t like you or he/she thinks bad of you, when in actual fact the person is just going through some difficulties in her/his life and didn’t even pay too much attention to you. Another way of saying it is- “People who worry what others think of them don’t realize how little others actually think about them!” As everyone mostly just worries about themselves and what others think of them… All these things can be read so much into detail in this book! About all the lies people learn from their parents and society… and so much more…)
You’re just gonna have to read the book to really implement these things in life! This was just a shorter version of it!
