The Four Agreements is a book written by Don Miguel Ruiz that outlines a code of conduct based on ancient Toltec wisdom. The four agreements are:
- Be impeccable with your word – Speak with integrity and say only what you mean. Avoid using words to gossip, judge, or harm others.
- Don’t take anything personally – What others say or do is a projection of their own reality, not yours. Don’t take things personally or assume that others’ actions are about you.
- Don’t make assumptions – Avoid making assumptions about others and their intentions. Communicate clearly and ask questions to avoid misunderstandings.
- Always do your best – Give your best effort in all that you do, regardless of the outcome. Your best will vary depending on the circumstances, but it is always within your power to do your best.
