The Four Agreements

  1. Be Impeccable with your words

  2. Don’t take anything personally

  3. Don’t make assumptions

  4. Always do your best

 

The four agreements are from Don Miguel Ruiz and I have them posted on the side of my refrigerator. I read them every day.

How many days do I actually live them? You know how you can say something over and over again, have it totally memorized (any other Catholics out there?), and still living it daily eludes you?

Like the Ten Commandments (OK, I already mentioned the Catholic thing!), these life tenets can just become nice fluff for your internal landscape, or something to pull out in conversation to make us look better than we are.

Today’s challenge: pick one of the above and do it all day.

Get in touch and let me know how it goes, what you experienced, what you noticed. It is so powerful to share the process with one another. I promise to do the same. I will post again and let you know how I lived into “Don’t make assumptions.”

I think I might need more than one day though.
