Chapter 1-4

Chapter 1

True justice is paying only once for each mistake. True injustice is paying more than once for each mistake.

The first agreement

Be impeccable with your word.
Self-rejection is the biggest sin.
You can live in heaven in the middle of thousands of people living in hell because you are immune to that hell.

The second agreement

Don’t take anything personally.
If you don’t take the emotional poison, it becomes even worse in the sender, but not in you.

The third agreement

Don’t make assumptions
You often overestimate or underestimate yourself. So gather more facts about a particular situation is more important.
Real love is accepting other people the way they are without trying to change them. So then you didn’t need make any assumption about them.
It’s better to ask them questions.

The fourth agreement

Always do your best
The criterion of best always change.
It’s not you “have to” or expect a reward, it’s you can intensely happy.
You do your best because you want to do it, not because you have to do it, not because you are trying to please the Judge, and not because you are trying to please other people.
Every action then becomes a ritual in which you are honoring God.
Your thoughts needs becomes a communion with God.

If you break an agreement, begin again!
