The Four Agreements

by Don Miguel Ruiz, Janet Mills

Don Miguel Ruiz

"Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive - the risk to be alive and express what we really are."

1. Be wise with your words

Your word is pure magic; and misuse of your word is black magic.

The biggest sin we make with our Word is to judge. And the most common target of this judgement is... ourselves!. Whenever we judge ourselves for anything, we are heading further down the path towards unhappiness

So be careful about your Word i.e. your inner dialogue. They may be invisible, but they are seeds that will take root and grow into your life.

2. Don't take anything personally

You are never responsible for the actions of others; you are only responsible for you. When you truly understand this, and refuse to take things personally, you can hardly be hurt by the careless comments or actions of others.

There is huge amount of freedom comes to you when you take nothing personally. You become immune to black magicians, and no spell can affect you regardless of how strong it may be.

3. Don't make assumptions

Most of us make the big assumption that others think how we think and see the world how we do. This sets up expectations inside of us that are inevitably broken. So it's much better to ask a question than assume anything.

We make all sorts of assumptions because we don't have the courage to ask questions.

4. Always do your best

When you always do your best, you take action. Doing your best is taking action because you love it, not because you're expecting a reward.

If you take action without expecting reward, you will find that you enjoy every action you do. 

If we like what we do, if we always do our best, then we really enjoying life. We are having fun, we don't get bored, we don't have frustrations.
