The Four Agreements

Book Report Monday

Have you read the book the Four Agreements? It is by Miguel Ruiz and is such an inspirational read. It is a spiritual book with Toltec roots. It was eye opening to me~ as most spiritual guides are.  Here are the main points:

Basically the premise is that there are four things we can do to be a better human. Sounds good to me, nice and easy right?!

  1. Be impeccable with your word
  2. Don’t take anything personally
  3. Don’t make assumptions
  4. Always do your best

Practicing these four agreements can be difficult to navigate. After I first read the book a few years ago I realized which ones were my strengths and which were my weaknesses. I struggle with #1 all the time. Not so much with what I am saying but how I am saying it, wanting to be so clear and say only what I actually mean. This is really tricky.

What agreement is your strength? What is your weakness? What do you want to work on? I am still focusing on #1, it is so tricky!
