I also found it strange to judge a book about the behavior of a person who claims to have read it and about the elderly who are the ancestors of the author of the book. That is why I did not respond to Cccc`s comment. If the commentator explains why he/she thought the four chords meant that people were behaving ruthlessly and selfishly, I might have received an answer. As things stand, I support the idea that — Toltec or not – these principles are a healthy way of living and agreeing with the good practices supported by modern psychology: while agreements are sometimes too simplified, it is always a great little book with some heavy ideas. Focusing on one of these chords can dramatically improve your life and reduce stress; Focusing on all four can really change a lot of people`s lives. If followed in a general and non-fanatical way, these proposals can help you reduce a large amount of stress by helping you avoid patterns of thought and behavior that create frustration, accusations, hurt emotions and other negative emotions. So what are the four agreements and how can they help in a business? In simple terms, it is wonderful to be conscientious in the way you use your words, but this agreement can be difficult to follow completely. It`s a great goal you`re aiming for and a good direction you can work towards. I interpreted “is” as living in the present and “was” the representation of past behaviors. Tension change probably intentionally. The best way to develop knowledge is to bypass other evaluations and read the material and develop your own knowledge. Because I also look at topics in relation to me My opinion is that we all get something different from any book, based on completely different emotional reactions, based on the observations of a group that reads all four chords at the same time.
There were about 50 of them, and I recommended it to a brother and sister who had a childhood trauma. He read the first chapters in tears, but he understood the healing power in himself. The first one only me off, but I understood that he was drawing why we shouldn`t believe that way. Be immaculate with your word. Don`t take anything personal. Don`t make any assumptions. Always do your best. The light and the truth. Ruiz`s final agreement calls us to make our best effort in our language and our relationships – in everything we do.
Our best efforts will vary from day to day; If we take responsibility for our best (no more and no less), we are committed to an intense life, we free ourselves to face unrealistic standards and we create a step-by-step map towards the healing of our journey. “If you continue to do your best, you always become a master of transformation. It is the practice that makes the master. If you do your best, you`ll become a master. We can use the fourth chord, Do Your Best, to encourage us to aspire positively. But this agreement also recognizes that “our best” varies from time to time, depending on our circumstances and our state of mind. The awareness of this fact leads to the realization that everything we do is our best moment, and this awareness can prevent us from having flags of ourselves if we are not up to an inappropriate level of perfection. If we have established relationship agreements (regardless of the relationship) that the exchanges are for information purposes in the name of intimacy, not a complaint or a request to repair anything to protect me from the emotional reactions I create myself… That`s impressive. This is a vulnerable intimacy and can go anywhere (no attachment to the result).
