The Four Agreements - A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom: Don Miguel Ruiz

If you are looking to change your life...this is the place to start! 

This book has changed my life!
The author does a great job of giving you step by step instructions on how to break old agreements we have made with ourselves, and acknowledge and make these 4 new agreements that will lead to an overall better life.

In this book, Don Miguel Ruiz shares his knowledge of the Toltec Wisdom People.
The book has 5 chapters, totaling 150 pages.

The Four Agreements:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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-judgement, self-abuse, and regret.
