The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is a very practical and eye-opening book. I bought this book my first year in business coaching. When you are looking for personal freedom from your thoughts this is truly a good read. Difficult experiences change our lives, change who we are and change how we think. In this book it teaches that by adopting the following four agreements: (1) Be Impeccable With Your Word, (2) Don’t Take Anything Personally, (3) Don’t Make Assumptions, and (4) Always Do Your Best, an ordinary life can be transformed into a magical one, filled with happiness, integrity and love. I was particularly inspired by the second agreement. It’s about not taking anything personally. “Nothing other people do is because of you. It is because of themselves” The very best thing about these teachings are the straightforward tools that Miguel Ruiz gives us to change our old belief systems and agreements.
Many of us have searched for years for answers to basic questions about why we are here in this life and how should we conduct ourselves. Miguel Ruiz presents the most direct, simple, and yet profound answers to these questions. – “Always Do Your Best.” ~Sandy
