| The Four Agreements

Sometimes the most simple advice is the best advice.

In The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz shows us how self-limiting beliefs hold us back from being our best selves, and gives us a code of conduct to help us experience true freedom in our lives.

Today I read a summary of the book The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

I learned that we all have self-limiting beliefs that hold us back, and that there are specific things we can do to get around them and to the life we’ve always wanted to live.

Here are a few questions to think about this week, inspired by the book:

Am I being impeccable with my word? Being impeccable means we don’t use our words against ourselves, creating feelings of guilt or shame. We also don’t use our words against other people in criticizing or gossiping. Lastly, we honour our commitments.

Am I taking things too personally? Taking the opinions of other people to heart (good or bad) can only lead to self-limiting behaviour. The only way to live a full life is to create your self-worth from within.

Am I making too many assumptions? Far too often we make assumptions about people and events, and in our mind they become the truth. It is better to ask questions to uncover the real truth.

Am I giving it my all? One of our biggest fears in life is that we’ll give our all and “it still won’t be good enough.” But when you free yourself from the opinions of others, you are free to always do your best.
