Do You Know The 4 Agreements?

What Are The 4 Agreements?

Don Miguel Ruiz wrote The Four Agreements in 1997.  Since that time it has sold 7.2 million copies and has been translated into 40 languages.  That’s big.  It’s a lot.  I understand why.  I read the book when it first came out and I have read it on a yearly bases since.  This past week I revisited the wisdom of this powerful book.  I needed some reminders.  Here is a summary of the agreements from the research I found on the internet.

The First Agreement:  Be Impeccable With Your Word

Speak with integrity.  Say only what you mean.  Don’t use words that speak against who you are and most definitely do not gossip about others.  Your words are powerful so use them for inspiration, truth, and love.  I have found that it is best to use words that change a situation or a circumstance for the better.  If not, stay quiet and listen.

The Second Agreement:  Don’t Take Anything Personally

Nothing that others do is because of you.  What someone else says or does is a projection of their own reality.  If you want to save yourself from being the victim of needless suffering, don’t plug into the opinions and actions of others.  And, sometimes things just simply are not about you!  I have always said, what others think of me is none of my business.

The Third Agreement:  Don’t Make Assumptions

Have the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want.  Communicate with others as clearly as you can

Habit 8: Set Your Intentions For The Day

Intentional Living

Habit 8 of Joyful, Successful, and Content People: We are intentional in our living. We set intentions for how we want our day to go, our desired outcome of meetings and phone calls. Our desire for our health and wellness. Start setting some intentions and see what happens. I do this during my ‘quiet time’ each morning and right before lights out at night.
