4 life truths by Don Miguel Ruiz.

based on the work of Don Miguel Ruiz.

These are the four universal principles that, according to the beliefs of the ancient Toltecs, can make us happier and make our lives fuller. These rules inspire change, teach us to think about our own human nature, examine it in terms of functioning in the world and thinking about the small things that happen in our everyday life, and how to approach them better.

1. Be impeccable with your word

only say what you truly mean, always speak your truth & use the power of your word responsibly — guided by truth and love.

2. Don’t take things personally.

nothing that others do is because of you — it is only a projection of their own reality.

3. Don’t assume things

avoid assumptions and misunderstandings, find the courage to ask questions & stay open.

4. Always do your best

Your best will be different at different times in your life, and that’s okay — do the best you can and you will avoid regret, blame and self-pity.
