What's the Story?:
From Goodreads.com: "In The Four Agreements,
don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us
of joy and create needless suffering. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom,
the Four Agreements offer a powerful code of conduct that can rapidly
transform our lives to a new experience of freedom, true happiness, and
love. The Four Agreements are: Be Impeccable With Your Word, Don't Take
Anything Personally, Don't Make Assumptions, Always Do Your Best."
My Two Cents:
I read "The Four Agreements"
based on the suggestion of a mentor. This is a very simple book but one
that I know that I will refer to again and again in the future. Even
though the book is simple, the prescriptions within the book are ones
that need to be practiced actively, mindfully, and consistently. This is
a short book with a lot of good information.
Although I am using
this book as a tool for my work, I think it is also a very good book to
inform some of the things that I do outside as well. This book does
have a bit of a religious Christian bend to it although I think it has a
lot of application for anyone regardless of whether or not they are
I suggest this book for anyone that is looking to make some improvements in their life.
