Using the four chords to master your life`s dreams is a magical journey. These are simple, but powerful. What Don Miguel Ruiz calls your authentic self to find wisdom is well-being and mastery. Love your presentation of this. Ruiz`s principles are rooted in Toltec`s traditional wisdom and, in their simplicity, these powerful arrangements are difficult and revolve around the idea that the way we think and act is based on agreements we make with ourselves. These agreements are supposed to be our personal belief systems that developed in childhood. Ruiz presents how to let go of these beliefs and links as a path to a happy, healthy and sensible life. The four agreements© were published in 1997 and have sold about 9 million times. He has been on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly a decade. Everything we do is based on agreements we have made – agreements with ourselves, with other people, with God, with life. But the most important agreements are those we make with ourselves.

What are the images that others have projected on you? When you say, “I`m smart, I`m stupid, I`m beautiful, I`m ugly,” these images are just knowledge or a lot of concepts. You unfold an image of perfection, a picture of what you should be to be good enough, but you don`t match that image. It is not realistic to expect that we will be able to change our thinking from day one and that we can follow all agreements perfectly, or even that we should. However, we can choose the agreements that happen to each of us personally and try to do our best to follow them. In doing so, we can relax knowing that we are doing everything in our power to develop personal freedom and happiness day after day. At first glance of the four chords, I thought, “It`s not that obvious” and it seemed pretty simple. When I read the book, I realized that simplicity was misleading. After years and years of trying to please others of what you should be, after trying to find out who you really are, you finally give up and accept other people`s images of who you are. But there is something in you that aspires to be free; It always tells you, “That`s not who I really am.
That is not what I really want. You are not free to be who you really are because you are trapped by images that you think you are.
