The Four Agreements
Wisdom comes through every culture and every age. Don Miguel Ruiz writes about Toltec wisdom in his classic book The Four Agreements. What I love about this book is that it is so simple. And that’s the way life is supposed to be! But sometimes simple is not so easy for us, is it? We tend to complicate things, to over analyze, to argue. But if we could just follow these four little agreements, we would find that we relate so much better to people, and that we can handle problems with more grace. Here are the four agreements, according to Don Miguel Ruiz, in a nutshell:
1. Be impeccable with your words
2. Don’t take anything personally.
3. Don’t make assumptions
4. Always do your best.
