The Four Agreements

by Don Miguel Ruiz





1. 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.”


2. 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 of others and actions

of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.”


3. 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.”


4. 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.”
