The Four Agreements by Mind Map: The Four Agreements

1. Be Impeccable with your Word

1.1. What we say reflects who we are and what we do

1.2. When we say things they are really a reflection of how we are feeling

2. Don't Take Anything Personally

2.1. What others do is not because of us

2.2. It is easy to take what others say or do and think that we caused it, but it is not because of us. Their words and actions reflect who they are on the inside

3. Don't Make Assumptions

3.1. We all make assumptions all the time. It is important to be aware of those assumptions and realize when an assumption may not be correct.

3.2. Assumptions can leave us hoping for more or giving ourselves expectations

3.3. If we remove assumptions, we can free ourselves of the grasp to what we don't understand, and instead let things work out.

4. Always Do Your Best

4.1. No matter what the situation, do your best.

4.2. When we are doing our best, we feel at our best.

4.3. If we are doing something and aren't motivated to do our best, we may be doing the wrong thing

5. Breaking Old Agreements

5.1. We have made unconscious old agreements with our selves that we often are not aware of. These agreements keep us from being free.

5.2. 1. Become aware of the agreements you have made

5.3. 2. Seek to understand if those agreements are enabling your freedom or are inhibiting you

5.4. 3. Work to become aware of when you are responding to those old agreements and 'let them go'

6. Heaven on Earth

6.1. We can find bliss on earth, each and every day and it primarily is controlled to what we think and how we respond to situations. By following the four agreements we can always be in this state or bring ourselves back if we wonder.
