FOUR ACCORDS ARE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD Speak with integrity. Tell me what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to scold others. Use the power of your word towards truth and love. DON`T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY Nothing that others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, of their own dream. If you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you will not be the victim of unnecessary suffering. DON`T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS Find the courage to ask questions and express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as possible to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With this agreement, you can completely change your life.
ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST Your best will change from one moment to the next; it will be different if you are tired, unlike well rested. In all circumstances, do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret. MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST!
