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.
