The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Four Agreements - Miguel Ruiz - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Four Agreements:

Toltec lessons for a successful life.

My favorite Miguel Ruiz quote from the book:

"Every human is an artist. The dream of your life is to make beautiful art."

Questions I pondered while reading The Four Agreements:

Can it really be so simple?

How do we get more participation in this?

My review of the book The Four Agreements:

A simple concept that is deceptively hard upon execution.

You are your word.
