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 .
