The Four Agreements Second Book

By making a pact with these four key agreements, an individual can dramatically influence the amount of happiness they feel in their life, regardless of external circumstances. [6] Even if a situation seems so personal, even if others insult you directly, it has nothing to do with you. What they say, what they do, and the opinions they give correspond to the agreements they have in their own minds. If you take things personally, you make easy prey for these predators, the black magicians. They can easily tie you up with a small opinion and feed you with whatever they want, and because you take it personally, you eat it. The second agreement offers readers a way to deal with hurtful treatments by other people they can experience in life. He advocates the importance of having a high self-esteem and not having to rely on the opinions of others to be satisfied and satisfied with their self-image.
