The Four Agreements…Principles I Strive to Live By
The 4 life-affirming principles below consistently influence what I say, how I react, and how I make decisions. All for the better. The author, Don Miguel Ruiz, learned these ways of being on his grandmother’s lap, and shares this ancient Toltec wisdom in plain language and good spirit. Buy this book, read it, then give it away.
1. Be impeccable with your word. (Don’t exaggerate, gossip, or tell half truths….)
2. Don’t take anything personally. (Try this on–for a lifetime!) Thank you Ruiz!
3. Don’t make assumptions. (Game changer! Less auto-piloting thru life with far fewer train wrecks)
4. Always do your best. (Be and Do with 100% of who you are, even when no one’s looking).
