Book Report On The Four Agreements
The four agreements show us that there is another way. By freeing ourselves from the structures and expectations of society, we can enter into new agreements for ourselves. We learn how to act and what we should believe and accept as normal. Ruiz says we should ask ourselves why we accept them and live because we have not chosen these rules and agreements. If the agreements are sometimes too simplified, it is still a small book with some heavy ideas. Focusing on one of these chords can dramatically improve your life and reduce stress; Focusing on all four can really change a lot of people`s lives. If followed in a general and non-fanatical way, these proposals can help you reduce a large amount of stress by helping you avoid patterns of thought and behavior that create frustration, accusations, hurt emotions and other negative emotions. That`s how everyone puts on a mask and starts living in a dream. We believe in all these things and we live by all these rules that we have never stopped thinking about. Don Miguel calls all these beliefs and rules „agreements,“ because we for these beliefs and rules were part of our AGREE dream.
(But of course, the kids always agree, so it`s not your fault.) Although Napoleon Hill called his book Think and Grow Rich, he even recognized the power of the action taken. In fact, this book became one of the first really popular self-help books, and it is still popular today because ideas are always priceless. So if you`re curious about how you think and grow rich, then go after our summary of Napoleon Hill Book. All these formations become like a set of rules in you. Don Miguel Ruiz calls this your „book of law.“ Why follow all the rules of your book of law? Because they feel safe. Even if some of the rules make you feel unhappy, you don`t break them, because then you will feel insecure. The four agreements have sold about 7.2 million times in the United States. Ruiz wrote this book with the wisdom of Toltec (and a good dose of common sense) to show that we should aspire to personal freedom from the constraints that society – and our own mind – put upon us.
The four chords are a very influential book. It was first published in 1997 and has been an increasingly popular book since Oprah Winfrey supported the book in 2001 and did so in 2013.
