One

BE IMPECCABLE WITH YOUR WORD

  • Speak with integrity.
  • Say only what you mean.
  • Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others.
  • Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.

 

Two

DON’T TAKE ANYTHING PERSONALLY

  • Nothing others do is because of you.
  • What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream.
  • When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

 

Three

DON’T MAKE ASSUMPTIONS

  • Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want.
  • Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness, and drama.
  • With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

Four

ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST

  • Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will different when you are healthy as opposed to sick.
  • Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.

 

Five

BE SKEPTICAL, BUT LEARN TO LISTEN

  • Don’t believe yourself or anybody else.
  • Use the power of doubt to question everything you hear: Is itreally the truth?
  • Listen to the intent behind the words, and you will understand the real message.
