The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz
In this book, Mr. Ruiz shared some' of his Toltec wisdom by providing what he called the Four Agreements we could make with ourselves.These Agreements are as follows:
Be Impeccable With Your Word.
Don't Take Anything Personally.
Don't Make Assumptions.
Always Do Your Best.
Mr. Ruiz believed these Four Agreements would give us a great sense of personal freedom, and went on to detail what each Agreement meant to him, and how they could be incorporated into our lives.
I could not help but to think of my own admonishments that I had authored from “Your Inner Jewel," and found the book very interesting reading. I also could not keep myself from imagining how I would expound on each of the facets of my own "Inner Jewel."
My favorite Agreement was, "Always Do Your Best." This would be comparable to two of from "Your Inner Jewel," Strive For Excellence In All That You Pursue, and Remember That Perfection is Not Possible. I truly understand today that trying my best at whatever I want to do, yet not putting myself down because it is not perfect is very important for my own sense of self-competence. Mr. Ruiz's book has reminded me that I am not on this path alone; I just have to continue searching thoughts of those that have travelled a similar path through the books they have written.Purchase The Book
