If you accept and follow these Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, you can transform your life!

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 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.


Hi Valarian,

I forgot that I own this book! I have so many things packed in storage, but today I am inspired to take this book out again. To add to the summary, the 4 agreements is based onToltec teachings, the Toltec was a Mexican civilization in the 10th and mid-12th centuries, so in essence this book is based on indigenous beliefs,and actually anthropologist referred to the Toltec as scientist and artists, they were a very aware and intelligent group


For those that want to hear the audio of the book, here are the videos

1st agreement

Second Agreement


Third Agreement


Fourth Agreement

I find 2 and 3 are so rich. I highly recommend reading/hearing these videos if your looking for a little inspiration today. Such a simple guideline, the language is not overwhelming or too intricate to digest, very common sense, and incredibly inspiring, imho.
