the concept is simple, the four agreements are understandable, the results are undeniable. However, the disciplined practice of consciousness and action is a monumental challenge. not because it`s complicated, but monumental, because it requires a complete rewriting of your deep-rooted thoughts and actions. The constant presence of the mind and the continuous focus will begin to unravel life from an unhealthy conditioning with which we have all felt comfortable. I have been on the path of spiritual awakening for 25 years and I wish I had come across this book at the beginning of my journey! Now it`s a perfect summary of what I`ve discovered myself over the years, wrapped up in a beautiful mystical story, the Tolèque way of contemplating it. I do not recommend this book enough to anyone who is looking for a way to lead a happy life, to be free from the fog of limiting beliefs and other effects of our domestication. The four agreements are simple, but difficult enough to be respected at any time in our lives, hence the importance of the fourth agreement. I will keep this book at the top of my list of favorite books for a long time to come and definitely re-read it to make it even more wise. Identified four self-limiting beliefs that hinder the experience of freedom, true happiness, and love. This book is a little Woo Woo, not bashing at all, but I could see how hard it is to get by for someone who doesn`t agree with this stuff. The basis of the four agreements is strong and so important. Beyond the Woo Woo New Agey Tone of the book are four tenants who are so important and vital to success personally and professionally.
The four chords are simple and easy to follow and will serve you well in life. Our personal power is based on the agreements we make and we often make those deals to please others instead of being true to ourselves. In doing so, we surrender our personal strength. The four chords aim to regain our personal power by being authentic and clinging to our true self. The four chords are: 1) Be blameless in your word, 2) Don`t take anything personally, 3) don`t make assumptions, and 4) always do your best.. . .
