The second agreement provides readers with a way to cope with the hurtful treatment they may experience in life. He advocates the importance of having a strong sense of self and not having to rely on the opinions of others to be satisfied and satisfied with their self-image. This agreement also allows readers to understand the idea that each individual has a unique worldview that changes their own perceptions, and that a person`s actions and beliefs are a projection of their own personal reality. [1] Ruiz believes that anger, jealousy, envy, and even sadness can diminish or dissolve once an individual stops taking things personally. [8] Ashley Rao, of the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, wrote: „No matter where we end up in the spiritual spectrum – from skeptics to believers, and across religious beliefs – the application of Ruiz`s teachings offers opportunities for transformation on our path through grief. [13] Rachel Thompson of HuffPost says the book is „an extremely useful book that can be put into practice on a daily basis to cope with criticism of any kind.” Accept positive intent It is one of those mantras that is worth repeating over and over again until it comes to your mind regularly.

As we learned with the second chord, a person`s reactions are a reflection of their inner state, not of you. Remembering that everyone is doing their best and giving them the benefit of the doubt means that the energy you expel will only be more positive and encouraging. And what you take out, you put it. Ruiz explains that while this agreement is the most important, it is the most difficult to respect. [7] For this agreement, Ruiz first analyzes the word „impeccable.” The word impeccable comes from the Latin word peccatus, which means „sin,” and the „im” at the beginning of impeccable is the Latin prefix meaning „without.” Ruiz describes a sin as anything that goes against oneself, and therefore it means being impeccable with language, taking responsibility for one`s actions, and remaining without judgment against oneself and others. [8] Essentially, this agreement emphasizes the importance of speaking eloquently and carefully choosing words before they are spoken aloud. [9] Making assumptions and taking things personally (agreements two and three) go hand in hand and lead to gossip, conflict and suffering. The third agreement is, „Don`t make assumptions.” Remember the old adage about adopting the word – that makes you and me one? This agreement is the same idea with a more spiritual inclination. In part 1 of this 2-part video, we learn about the „domestication” of man and how all the rules and values of our family and society are imposed on us by a system of punishment and reward.

As young children, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life; we are absolutely authentic. But then we learn to be what others think we „should” be, and because it`s not acceptable for us to be who we are, we start pretending to be what we aren`t. When we are teenagers, we have learned to judge ourselves, to punish ourselves and to reward ourselves according to agreements we have never chosen. The Four Accords help us break self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love. In short, „Don`t Make Assumptions,” the third agreement in Don Miguel Ruiz`s The Four Agreements, aims to give people the benefit of the doubt. Two things that „don`t take things personally” (the second deal) and have that agreement in common? Both require a certain level of awareness to catch up with you when you`re in a moment of judgment or reaction to something around you.

What makes this agreement so great, however, is that you can take concrete steps to make fewer assumptions today. As a coach who helps creative entrepreneurs gain clarity and confidence, The Four Agreements is one of my favorite books of all time. I believe that these agreements are essential to live in accordance with your unique objective. The fourth agreement allows readers to get a better overview of the progress made in achieving their life goals. This agreement includes the integration of the first three chords into everyday life and also the exhaustion of one`s own potential. [8] It is a question of doing one`s best individually, which is different from the different situations and circumstances that the individual may encounter.
