BOOKS THAT GAVE ME SEEDS TO THRIVE (Click link for the introduction to the series)
Don Miguel Ruiz was my voice of reason through many of my dark times. In The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom his writing really did show me a path to freedom. I honestly believe that by planting the seeds he gave me, I am where I am today living an authentic life. It was amazing how many lessons I have applied to my life since the first time I read the book over 11 years ago. The first time I read the book, I wasn’t ready to apply the ideas. The second time, I was so desperate to change for the sake of my sanity. Now, I get to look back and see how far I have come and get some reminders to keep me going. This is a book I will continue to recommend to anyone who wants to live a more peaceful life. He repeats concepts and ideas in multitude of ways. This gives the reader the best chance of being able to absorb the material. The better I am at applying the agreements to my life, the more amazing my adventures become.
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS
- BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD
- DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY
- DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS
- ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST
-Don Miguel Ruiz
There are so many powerful messages throughout the book. I hope you will pick it up for the first time or for a re-read. It is important to get the reminders, because we always have something we can work on. It really is so hard to pick one quote, so I will give you two.
