the four agreements

Toltec wisdom from Don Miguel Ruiz

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 drama.

    With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

always do your best

  • Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.

    Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick.
