Impeccable Agreement

The book is based on a series of spiritual beliefs, held by Toltec`s seniors, to help readers transform their lives into a new experience of freedom, happiness and love. [4] According to the author, everything a man does is based on agreements he has made with himself, with others, with God and with life itself. [1] In these agreements, we can tell ourselves who they are, how to behave, what is possible and what is impossible. [1] Some agreements that create individuals may not cause problems, but there are certain arrangements that come from a place of fear and have the power to deplete emotional energy and reduce a person`s self-esteem. [1] The book states that these self-limiting agreements cause unnecessary suffering. [1] Ruiz also believes that to find personal joy, one must get rid of socially imposed and fear-based agreements that can unconsciously influence the individual`s behaviour and thinking. [5] Another fundamental premise of the book suggests that much of the suffering is created and that most people have the ability to transform themselves and the negative thoughts they have about the situations in their lives. [6] The author identifies the sources of unhappiness in life and proposes four beneficial agreements that can be concluded with oneself to improve their general state of well-being. By pacting with these four most important chords, an individual is able to dramatically influence the amount of happiness he feels in his life, regardless of external circumstances. [6] What we find when we ask and answer these questions honestly is that we really don`t want to make deliberate agreements, which means bilateral agreements with a real buy-in. We just want people to do what we want them to do.

It doesn`t matter. In fact, it`s human. The first key to conscious leadership is self-confidence, and it`s a great dose of self-confidence. To see that I just want others to do what I want, that they do, that I want to control other people, that I am below the line and that I want to use the language of the contract to get my result, is one of the first steps to be a conscious guide. To find out if you are using agreements as part of your control plan, simply ask yourself the following questions before asking someone to make an agreement with you: to establish and stop flawless “Beyond the Line” agreements, it helps to understand each of the phrases referred to in Commitment 6.
