Don Miguel Ruiz – 4 Principles of Personal Freedom
In a nutshell, the four agreements are:
– Be Impeccable With Your Words
– Don’t Take Anything Personally
– Don’t Make Assumptions
– Always Do Your Best
1. Be Impeccable With Your Words
In saying that you should be Impeccable With Your Word, Don Miguel Ruiz means you should always speak with integrity.
Onlysay what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Don’t Take Anything Personally means that nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
Whenyou are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Don’t Make Assumptions means you must find the the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want.
Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
When he says Always Do Your Best, he means your best is going to change from moment to moment, but you must simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse, and regret.
That was a summary. If you want to read about The Four Agreements more in depth, check out the book.
