In The Four Agreements, Don Miguel Ruiz reveals the source of self-limiting beliefs that rob us of joy and create needless suffering. The book has been touted as a helpful spiritual resource to Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and even Tom Brady. Brady says the lessons in the book have been a “mantra for his life.” If it’s good enough for Tom, it’s good enough for me. Ruiz claims that we all have made thousands of “agreements” with ourselves and with others: what you are, what you believe, what you think you can and can’t do, what is possible and impossible. Many of these agreements have been hardwired into our brains from family, friends and the media since we were young. Ruiz says that if you can adopt these four agreements, “they will create enough personal power for you to change the entire system of your old agreements.” So, what are the four agreements that can change our life?
