4 Agreements to Live By

These Four Agreements are meant to be taken as guidelines to live by for a life of integrity to do your best, no matter what happens. If you can learn to stop the negative self-talk, quit being self-critical and hard on yourself, you stand a much better chance of being happy and enjoying your life. This is a “practical guide to personal freedom,” according to the author, Don Miguel Ruiz.

Ruiz states that the agreements you tell yourself determines who you are, what you feel, what you believe and how to behave. This becomes your personality. In these agreements, you say, “This is what I am. This is what I believe, I can do certain things and some things I cannot do. This is reality, that is fantasy; This is possible, that is impossible. ” Open your mind to becoming more than you imagined by internalizing the Four Agreements into your daily life. As you practice these principles, monitor your happiness, mindfulness and ability to feel good about yourself. In Positive Psychology, one of the main tenets is to focus on a person’s strengths and build upon them. However, many people focus on their failures, mistakes, weaknesses which only makes you feel worse. Leave behind negativity and find the optimist within. Stay in the moment, focus on strengths and have more fun.
