The Four Agreements

” Everything we do is based on agreements we have made – – agreements with ourselves, with other people, with the Creator, with life. But the most important agreements are the ones we make with ourselves In these agreements we tell ourselves who we are, what everyone else is, how to act, what is possible, and what is impossible. One single agreement is not such a problem, but we have many agreements that come from fear, deplete our energy, and diminish our self-worth. What we have agreed to believe creates what we experience. When these agreements come from fear, blocks and obstacles develop keeping us from realizing our greatest potential.

The Four Agreements


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.





I can’t speak highly enough about this book/these teachings. I can easily say this has been the most pivotal and foundational book for me. These Agreements and their associated concepts are very simple yet very profound and plant a great foundation for understanding and disciplining one’s mind and energy.

They will just be listed in their simple form for now and then we will soon post a page dedicated to each agreement.
