There are certain books that come into your life at the exact time that you need them and they change your perspective forever. Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements was one of those books for me. I realize that many people have already heard of this book’s central tenets (based on Toltec wisdom), but I believe they bear repeating. I’ve quoted them as they are presented in the book:
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.
