The Four Agreements


“The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz with Janet Mills is one of these books, that caught my attention last time.
I decided to share with you the following quotes from the book. More quotes and thoughts you can find also on Instagram #TheFourAgreements

The First Agreement
“Be Impeccable with Your Word”


“Whenever we hear an opinion and believe it, we make an agreement, and it becomes part of our belief system.”


“Your opinion is nothing but your point of view. It is not necessarily true. Your opinion comes from your beliefs, your own ego, and your own dream.”


“Impeccability of the word can lead you to personal freedom, to huge success and abundance; it can take away all fear and transform it into joy and love.”

The Second Agreement
“Don’t Take Anything Personally”


“Others are going to have their own opinion according to their belief system, so nothing they think about me is really about me, but it is about them.”


“Wherever you go you will find people lying to you, and as your awareness grows, you will notice that you also lie to yourself. Do not expect people to tell the truth because they also lie to themselves. You have to trust yourself and choose to believe or not to believe what someone says to you.”


“You are never responsible for actions of others; you are only responsible for you.”

The Third Agreement
“Don’t Make Assumptions”

“We only see what we want to see, and hear what we want to hear. We don’t perceive things the way they are.”


“Also, find your voice to ask for what you want. Everybody has the right to tell you no or yes, but you always have the right to ask. Likewise, everybody has the right to ask you, and you have the right to say yes or no.”


The Fourth Agreement
“Always Do Your Best”

“When you always do your best, you take action. Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do exactly the opposite: They only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.”

“If we like what we do, if we always do our best, then we are really enjoying life. We are having fun, we don’t get bored, we don’t have frustrations.”


“Action is about living fully. Inaction is the way that we deny life.”


“Whatever life takes away from you, let it go. When you surrender and let go of the past, you allow yourself to be fully alive in the moment.”


“You were born with the right to be happy. You were born with the right to love, to enjoy and to share your love. You are alive, so take your life and enjoy it.”


Others quotes from the book “The Four Agreements”:
“Respect your body, enjoy your body, love your body, feed, clean, and heal your body. Exercise and do what makes your body feel good.”


“The only reason you are happy because you choose to be happy. Happiness is a choice, and so is suffering.”

    You should smile more often in your pictures, it looks really good on you. Regarding the second agreement, it’s hard not to take things personally when you know when bad things were targeted towards you.

    So true! opinions are just personal points of view but like Jo said it can be difficult to not take things personally, I am very sensitive when it comes to things like that!
