Recently I’ve been reading a lot about Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of The Four Agreements. In his book, he has four codes in which he uses to approach life. In this article you’ll find these four very important codes, and when applied I think can improve anyone’s life dramatically.
Print them out, put them on your wall and read it daily, as I know it’ll improve your life as much as it improved mine.
[dropcap]B[/dropcap]e 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.
[dropcap]D[/dropcap]on’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.
[dropcap]D[/dropcap]on’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.
[dropcap]A[/dropcap]lways 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.
If you wish to print them out, here’s a simply poster style you can hang on your wall.
