Everything we do is based on agreements we have made – agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are those we make with ourselves. The fourth agreement allows readers to get a better overview of the progress made in achieving their life goals. This agreement includes the integration of the first three chords into everyday life and also the exhaustion of one`s own potential.

In part 1 of this 2-part video, we learn about the “domestication” of man and how all the rules and values of our family and society are imposed on us by a system of punishment and reward. As young children, our true nature is to love and be happy, to explore and enjoy life; we are absolutely authentic. But then we learn to be what others think we “should” be, and because it`s not acceptable for us to be who we are, we start pretending to be what we aren`t. When we are teenagers, we have learned to judge ourselves, to punish ourselves and to reward ourselves according to agreements we have never chosen. The Four Accords help us break self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love. Be impeccable in my own words, don`t take things personally, don`t make assumptions and always do my best, these four promises are hard to keep, but once I became aware of these four promises, things changed in a positive direction.
The idea is that over time, the effects of other people`s opinions have become a very powerful force in the habits we have created in our lives. During this process, we made “agreements” in our minds about who and what we should be. Over time, we have learned to live our lives on the basis of these agreements. Therefore, it turns out that the decisions we make now are determined by the opinions of other people in the past and not by those we would have chosen alone. Don Miguel Ruiz, in his book, gives us four principles that we can practice to break the boundaries created by others so that we can build a happier and more successful life for ourselves. According to Don Miguel Ruiz, everything we do is based on agreements we have made – agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are those we make with ourselves. In these agreements, we tell ourselves who we are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible. A single agreement is not such a problem, but we have many agreements that stem from fear, deplete our energy and reduce our self-esteem. In addition to the book and audiobook, an eBook, a four-color illustrated book, a card game, and an online course are also available.
