The rest of the book teaches us how to break our agreements with society`s beliefs that are not useful and create positive substitutes. There are three ways to break with our old and bad deals: anything we accept as “as it is” is an agreement. But too many of these agreements harm us and others. Think, for example, of the teenager who is starving to adapt. Think of someone who stays in an unhappy relationship because that`s all they know. Unless we still have all these old agreements that are still pending. We have to fight and reject them. How can we dismantle these old agreements that have caused unnecessary suffering in our lives? How can we free ourselves from the old agreements? This agreement is also a simple concept, but it will allow the other three agreements to be more entrenched and effective. Finally, the first three chords can only really work if you do your best. If we want a life full of joy, we must break those harmful agreements that promote suffering and failure. But how? We feel powerless because the creation and maintenance of all these negative agreements has sucked up our personal strength. This first agreement invites us to be “irreproachable” by our words.

That is the agreement on which all other agreements are based. Sticking to this agreement alone can change your life. It reminds us not to condemn ourselves or beat ourselves up if we break any of the agreements. Start. We will improve over time. Today`s world is full of suffering and cruelty. From birth, we are trained to accept the rules of society as “as they are,” but adhering to those rules prevents us from becoming our true self. But there is another way to live. If we replace the old agreements with four simple agreements, we will be able to free ourselves from the old rules and find peace and happiness. These agreements are: 1) Use your words impeccably. 2) Don`t take anything personally…
