Book review & my 1st giveaway ever! The Four Agreements

The Four Agreements


The Four Agreements A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

This book is on the button.

Author, Miguel Ruiz offers his readers four powerful codes of conduct that can lead us to expressing ourselves with impeccable clarity, kindness and meaning.

In fact it’s rather shameful, yet ultimately empowering, to see our behaviour boiled down to four agreements that, if actioned, can truly make us function at our best. One would think that’s easy right? Yet I refer back to this book so many times to realign myself. I also enjoy sharing his wisdom with our daughters.

So useful it has been that my 10-year old recently surprised me with a mini handbag sized version of it – how thoughtful of her, right! Even the original size makes for a neat little bedside table book.

Now, do I share the four agreements in this review, or will it give away too much? Well, because you can simply google them, I’ll include them and trust that if this sparks your interest, then you’ll do yourself the privilege of reading the intricacies of the agreements.

“The Four Agreements

1. Be impeccable with your word.

2. Don’t take anything personally.

3. Don’t make assumptions.

4. Always do your best. ”

― Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom

    1. Hi Rachel, thanks for making contact. I’m so pleased you share the belief in the power of one’s thoughts and words!

  1. I would love to know more about the third agreement – Don’t make assumptions. I am told all to often that I have assumed something and am incorrect! I think I am being perceptive – subtly understanding the signs! Clearly that is an assumption. (Or not?)

  2. I’ve always thought I’m fairly good at not taking things personally, but find myself at present making assumptions in a certain area of my life, resulting in my taking things personally. Also, in the situation, I think I hadn’t done my best. So, wham – three in one shot! I have read the book, but clearly need to own a copy, to get myself sorted.

I'd love to hear from you...
