This amazing little book if taken to heart will change you forever.  You can read my first post about it here.

As an artist Agreement #2 is important.  If you take personally everything anyone says about your work will destroy you.  Their opinion about your work is NOT about you but all about them.  I have to keep that in mind – all the time!

The four agreements: a practical guide to personal freedomSome time  back I mentioned that I love to read.  I read several books a week and when I really love one I keep it handy and reread it.  This is one of those books. 

The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz is one of my all time favorite books.  It is a small, simple book with a really big message.  It is basically a code of conduct for anyone who wants to experience freedom from the crazy stress of day-to-day life and who wants to live with happiness and love in their life.  I LOVE this book.  And I have given it to many relatives and friends.  I hope you will take a look.

To quote Ruiz, The Four Agreements are 1) Be impeccable with your word; 2) Don’t take anything personally; 3) Don’t make assumptions; and 4) Always do your best.  Sounds simple, huh?  But when you really explore the depth of these agreements you find it is not that easy to do but if you work at it, you’ll live a better life and be a better person. 

Check out The Four Agreements.  I think you’ll love it too!
