The four agreements

by don Miguel Ruiz

1. Be impeccable with your word. Speak with integrity and say only what you mean.

2. Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do has anything to do with you. It simply reflects their own life experiences and the training they recieved when they were children.

3. Don’t make assumptions. Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate as clearly as you can. And don’t become attached to preconceived ideas of what should happen.

4. Always do your best. Then never second-guess yourself or look back with regret.
