Book Number 23: The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz

Book number: 23

Book name: The Four Agreements

Author: Don Miguel Ruiz

Book Length: 160

Time taken to read: July 28- July 30

Genre: Self-help book

Recommended to: This is one of the simple books I have read by far which deals with the simple 4 agreements which one can implement in every step of life.

Inspired me to learn about:

3 takeaways from the book:

  • “Doing your best is taking the action because you love it, not because you’re expecting a reward. Most people do the exact opposite: They only take action when they expect a reward, and they don’t enjoy the action. And that’s the reason why they don’t do their best.”
  • “When you feel good, everything around you is good, when everything around you is great, everything makes you happy. You are loving everything that is around you, because you are loving yourself. Because you like the way you are. Because you are happy with your life. You are happy with the movie that you are producing, happy with your agreements with life. You are at peace, and you are happy. You live in that state of bliss where everything is so wonderful, and everything is so beautiful. In that state of bliss you are making love all the time with everything that you perceive.”
  • “Gossiping has become the main form of communication in human society. It has become the way we feel close to each other, because it makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do. There is an old expression that says, ‘Misery likes company,’ and people who are suffering in hell don’t want to be all alone.”

  2. I love the Four Agreements! I taught this book at a mental health clinic a few years back. We had a women’s group (I think there were 6-7 total) and I remember some of the women telling me that this book changed their life! There are a set of daily cards that accompany the book too if you are into that sort of thing. Glad to see you sticking with this journey!
