embracing your Best: The Fourth Agreement

The Fourth Agreement: Always Do Your Best


Welcome to the final installment of our transformative blog series, inspired by "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz. We've explored the power of our words, the value of not taking things personally, and the importance of clear communication. Now, we embark on the journey of the fourth agreement: Always Do Your Best.


This agreement invites us to give our best effort in everything we do, regardless of the circumstances. It recognizes that our best may vary from day to day due to factors like health, energy, and emotional well-being. The key is to always strive for personal excellence.


Early in my recovery, I struggled with inconsistency. There are days where I feel invincible, ready to conquer the world, and days when simply getting out of bed felt like an achievement. But "Always Do Your Best" inspired me to know that my best was always enough, no matter the outcome.


When I do my best, there is less regret and doubt that follow my actions. This agreement is one that truly brought freedom into my everyday life. Day after day putting my heart into all my daily actions and doing my best eventually became a habit, and led to a major transformation. With all the other agreements, its easy to regress and fall back into old behavior and thought processes but with this one, I get the active conscious choice to Always Do My Best.



Consistency in self improvement


Embrace Self-Compassion: Recognize that your best is different each day. Be kind to yourself during challenging moments.


Celebrate Small Wins: Every step forward is a victory. Celebrate your progress, no matter how minor it may seem.


Live Authentically: Authenticity arises when you give your genuine effort without fear of judgment.

Building a daily practice


As you reflect on this agreement, consider how it applies to your life. How might consistently doing your best, even on your toughest days, contribute to your personal growth and overall well-being?


Don’t get me wrong, living by these agreements is a DAILY practice and it did not come easy at first. Nor was it an all day everyday type thing in the beginning. But making a commitment to remember these agreements and practicing day by day has encouraged a life of self-discovery, empowerment, and a more integrity filled approach to life.
