It`s a brilliant book with excellent audio output. It outlines four simple agreements you can make with yourself that allow you to increase your control over how you live your life: 1) Be impeccable with your word; 2) Don`t take anything personally; 3) Don`t make assumptions; 4) Always give your best. Simple doesn`t mean easy! Don Miguel`s book helps the reader to have the power of these agreements and to use them. Reading Peter Coyote is a pleasure that supports the learning process. It is a timeless work that can be referred to again and again. I found the Four Chords even more powerful than Stephen Covey`s Seven Habits, which worked a lot. And just like the Seven Habits, the Four Chords are powerful in all aspects of your life, including family, work, and leisure. the concept is simple, the four agreements are understandable, the results are undeniable. However, the disciplined practice of consciousness and action is a monumental challenge. not because it`s complicated, but monumental because it requires a complete rewriting of your deepest thoughts and actions. Constant presence of mind and sustained focus will begin to unravel the life of unhealthy conditioning that we have all been comfortable with. By making a pact with these four key agreements, an individual is able to significantly affect the amount of happiness they feel in their life, regardless of external circumstances.
