Ruiz explains that this agreement is the most important, but it is the most difficult to respect.  For this agreement, Ruiz first analyzes the word “irreproachable”. The word impeccable comes from the Latin word peccatus, which means “sin,” and the “im” at the beginning of irreproachable is the Latin prefix meaning “without.” Ruiz describes a sin as anything that goes against himself, and so, with language, it is taking responsibility for one`s actions and remaining without judgment against oneself and against others.  Essentially, this agreement emphasizes the meaning of honest speech and careful choice of words before they are spoken aloud.  With four simple statements, the shaman teacher and healer, Don Miguel Ruiz, intervenes in his own lineage to present an effective code of conduct and eliminate negative concepts and beliefs that limit our own behavior. The third agreement describes the question of whether assumptions are made, how they lead to suffering, and why individuals should not participate in it. Assuming what others think, it can cause stressful and interpersonal conflicts, because the person believes that their acceptance is a representation of the truth.  Ruiz believes that one solution to overcome the act of acceptance is to ask questions and ensure that communication between those involved is clear.  Individuals can avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama by not making assumptions.
 The fourth agreement allows readers to better understand the progress made in achieving their life goals. This agreement implies the integration of the first three agreements into daily life and the full potential of exploitation.  It`s about doing what`s best to manage individually, which is different from the different situations and circumstances the individual may face. Ruiz believes that if you avoid self-judgment and do his best at every given moment, he will be able to avoid regrets.  By integrating the first three chords and giving the best of themselves in all facets of life, the individual will be able to lead a life free of sadness and self-extinction.  In addition to the book and audiobook, there is also an eBook, a four-color illustrated book, a card ceiling, and an online course.  In the first part of this 2-part video, we learn something 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 little children, it is our true nature 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 normal for us to be what 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 agreements help us break the self-limiting agreements and replace them with agreements that bring us freedom, happiness and love.. . .
