I liked this so much, I had to share it with you guys!
Basically, these four agreements are the basis of a book entitled “The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom” (not an affiliate link) by Don Miguel Ruiz. It’s now on my reading list to check it out further. But in the meantime, it’s practical advice for all of us!
The Four Agreements – A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
In case you can’t or don’t want to read the image, here is what it says:
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-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
Over to you…
