The Agreements:

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.

Don’t Take Anything Personally:  Nothing others do is because of you.  What others say and do is a projection of their own reality.  When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Don’t Make Assumptions:  Find the courage to ask questions and ask for 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.

Always Do Your Best:  Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick.  Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

Stay true and be you —
