Recently, Oprah Winfrey interviewed don Miguel Ruiz on Super Soul Sunday, on her OWN network. For many people who had already read his book, the “The Four Agreements” it was great to be reminded that we can live healthier and more joyful lives if we can eliminate self limiting beliefs from our thoughts and lives.
For those that have not read the book, and are open to learning how to release self limiting beliefs from their lives, “The Four Agreements” is certainly worth considering. If you have ever thought that your life was lacking in joy and freedom, you may be dealing with self limiting beliefs.
The Four Agreements are:
1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don’t Make Assumptions
Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best
Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
