It`s a wonderful book. If you really listen and take it on board, it has the potential to change your life (and the people around you) for the best it can be. Simple ideas, but so much meaning. Peter Coyote tells it beautifully and the length is perfect for conveying the message briefly and concisely while allowing you to record his wonderful messages. I don`t recommend it enough. It`s not common for me to get a “buzz” from a book, but I`m buzzing now. Do yourself a favor. I was a bit skeptical, but I really enjoyed hearing this audiobook. There is no particular religious bias in relation to teaching, but it was interesting and quite logical. It`s an audiobook that I`ll listen to again one day. The word is so powerful that a word can change a life or destroy the lives of millions of people. A few years ago, a man in Germany manipulated an entire country of the smartest people using this word. He led them into a world war with the force of his word.
He convinced others to commit the most cruel acts of violence. It activated people`s fear with the word, and like a big explosion, there were killings and war all over the world. All over the world, people were destroying others because they were afraid of everyone. Hitler`s word, based on terrified beliefs and agreements, will be remembered for centuries. Every time you break an agreement, all the power with which you created it belongs to you. If you accept these four new agreements, they will create enough personal power for you to change the whole system of your old agreements. A single agreement is not a problem of this kind, but we have many agreements that make us suffer, that make us fail in life. If you want to live a life of joy and fulfillment, you must find the courage to break agreements based on fear and that claim your personal power. Agreements that come out of fear require us to spend a lot of energy, but agreements that come from love help us save energy and even produce extra energy. If we can see that it is our agreements that govern our lives and that we do not like the dream of our life, we must change the agreements.
If we are finally ready to change our agreements, there will be four very powerful agreements that will help us break the agreements that come out of fear and deplete our energy. This is a brilliant book with excellent audio output. It describes four simple agreements you can make with yourself, which allow you to increase your control over how you live your life: 1) Be blameless with your word; 2) Don`t take anything personally; 3) Don`t make assumptions; 4) Always do your best. It doesn`t mean simple! Don Miguel`s book helps the reader to have the power of these agreements and to use them. Reading Peter Coyotes is a pleasure that supports the learning process. It is a timeless work that can be constantly referred to. I found the four chords even more powerful than Stephen Covey`s seven customs, which was not the case. And just like the Seven Habits, the Four Chords are powerful in every aspect of your life, including family, work, and leisure. You need a very strong will to accept the four chords – but if you can start living your life with those chords, the transformation in your life will be amazing. You will see the drama of hell disappear before your eyes. .
