THE FIVE AGREEMENTS | DON MIGUEL RUIZ

|| 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 | DO NOT 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 will not be the victim of needless suffering .

|| 3 | DO NOT MAKE ASSUMPTIONS ||

Find the courage to ask questions and 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 tired as opposed to well rested , happy as opposed to upset , or healthy as opposed to sick .

Under any circumstance , simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment , self-abuse , and regret .

|| 5 | BE SKEPTICAL BUT LEARN TO LISTEN ||

Do not believe yourself or anybody else unconditionally .

Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear :

Is it really the Truth ?

Listen to the intent behind the words and you will understand the real message .
