THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
Speak with integrity. Say only 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.
DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
Nothing others do is because of you.
What others say and do is a projection of their own
reality, their own dream. When you are immune to
the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the
victim of needless suffering.
DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
Find 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 dramas. With just this one agreement,
you can completely transform your life.
ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Your best is going to change from moment to moment;
it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to
sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best,
and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
