The Four Agreements

Yesterday I wrote about about three books I wanted to share and then started talking about the book The Four Agreements. The first agreement is to be impeccable with you word. The second is to not take anything personally. NOTHING anyone does is because of you. I don’t know about you but this agreement was life changing. Coming from a place of taking EVERYTHING personally I needed to learn this. To be honest there’s still an internal struggle most of the time. But I’m learning to remind myself of this agreement.

Don’t make assumptions. This is important! Don’t assume people know what you want or need and don’t assume that you know what they want or need. Why not ask questions, open a dialogue to avoid unnecessary drama and misunderstandings?

Always do you best. Always do the best you are capable of at that moment. Don’t judge yourself. Sometimes your best will be better than others. This is ok. Life happens.

So this is a brief summary of The Four Agreements. If you haven’t read it you need to. It is a quick easy read.

In my opinion self improvement should be never ending, growing and evolving is fundamental to our existence and we will keep having the same lesson sent to us until we learn it. Which reminds me of yet another life changing book!
