The 1st agreement:Â BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
It is the most important one and probably the
hardest one to honor.Â Practicing this first one
can change your life.
Speak with integrity and say only what you mean.
Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or
to gossip about others.Â Use the power of your
word in the direction of truth and love.
The 2nd agreement:Â DONâ€™T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
Nothing others do is because of you.Â What others
say and do is a projection of their own reality,
their own dream.Â When you are immune to the actions
and opinions of others, you wonâ€™t be the victim of
The 3rd agreement:Â DONâ€™T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
Find the courage to ask questions and to express
what you really want.Â Communicate with others as
clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sad-
ness and drama.
The 4th agreement:Â ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
Simply always do your best and you will avoid self-
judgment, self-abuse and regret.
Don Ruiz expands on each of these agreements and I
recommend reading this book.Â It has been recommended
to me many times by a couple of dear friends.
