The Four Agreements

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. I had a busy weekend. A class reunion and a pre-reunion get together, so I didn’t write a post. However, I thought I would share with you something that popped up in my feed on Facebook. Thanks for stopping by and we’ll be back next week for our regular scheduled program. šŸ˜‰

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.ā€

Author:

I'm a Young Adult Author with two new series, "The Starlight Chronicles" and "The Super Spies." The first one's a coming of age series and the second one's a mystery/thriller series. I'm also the mother of two boys who keep me hopping and they're my inspiration for everything. When I'm not shuttling my boys to school or a play date, I'm writing. When I'm not writing, I'm reading, hiking, or sometimes running. I love anything chocolate and scary movies too.

  1. All sound applications for a happier life, Lisa. #4 stands out for me. I always have tried to subscribe to the notion of autographing my work with excellence. Indeed, if you do your very best and know you have done so, you’ll not be bothered with any second-guessing or regret thereafter.

  2. I absolutely love this book, Lisa! I’ve read it many times over. Thanks for the reminder on the agreements. It’s Toltec wisdom at its best! Cheers!

  3. If you were to add, Protect The Innocent, and something about, Even If It Leads To Your Death, you may be able to become a Knight.

    Everything you’ve listed is invaluable and absolutely necessary if we’re to make improvements in this world. A world in desperate need of values.
