- Be impeccable with your words (speak with integrity, say only what you mean, and speak out of truth and love)
- Don't take anything personally
- Don't make assumptions
- Always do your best
The book uses the word "agreements" differently than most of us do. Agreements are like beliefs or practices; they're the filters through which we see the world. so if you make those four agreements your core beliefs and structure your world that way, you'll be happier. I guess this is because you'll be substituting negative or limiting ideas for these positive ones. We'll see how that goes.
It doesn't really matter whether or not this book helps me see the world better and to be happier. I'll get something out of the book that will help me live my life better. Really, the best part of the book club is the other people in the group. I've been in groups with these people for almost four years now and I'm completely comfortable with them. I miss them when I don't see them. So that's why, no matter what book is being studied, I'll sign up for book club. And if I learn something while I'm there, so much the better.
