The four agreements show us that there is another way. By freeing ourselves from social structures and expectations, we can make new deals for ourselves. We have all made a number of “conventions” about how we are going to lead life. We have made agreements with our friends, partners, parents, children, gods and more broadly with society. And of course, the most important agreements are those we have made with ourselves. All these agreements we have made guide our “personality”: they tell us who we are, how we feel, what we believe and how we behave. However, in most cases, all of these agreements have never been consciously chosen. Ruiz says that, like farm animals, we have been “domesticated” since childhood — we have been punished or rewarded based on what we have or have not done, and this has shaped us to become what we are today. . . .
