The fourth agreement allows readers to have a better understanding of the progress made in achieving their goals in life. This agreement involves the integration of the first three agreements into daily life and the exploitation of its own potential.  It is a matter of doing the best that can be managed individually, which varies from the different situations and circumstances that the individual may encounter. Ruiz believes that if you judge yourself and do your best at all times, you will be able to avoid remorse.  By integrating the first three chords and doing the best in all facets of life, the individual will be able to lead a life without grief or self-awareness.  Points you should keep in mind: Taking this advice to an extreme can lead you to ignore your intuition about people or common sense of behavior from a person who harms you personally. It can also open you up to manipulations if you train yourself to believe the explanation of someone`s negative behavior instead of judging the behavior for yourself. An example of this in action might be, for example, not believing that you are being deceived if your partner shows erratic behaviors and classic signs of infidelity, but he or she categorically denies faults. The third agreement describes the question of whether assumptions are made as to how it leads to suffering and why individuals should not participate in doing so. If you assume what others think, it can create stress and interpersonal conflict, because the person thinks that his hypothesis is a representation of the truth.  Ruiz believes that one solution to overcome the adoption act is to ask questions and ensure that communication between those involved is clear.
 Individuals can avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama by not taking any assumptions.  In Part 2 of this two-part video, we learn something about the book of the law that governs our mind and the inner judge that makes us suffer because we never measure ourselves with our «image of perfection». All our normal tendencies are lost in the domestication process, and we begin to look for what we have lost. We seek freedom because we are no longer free; we seek happiness because we are no longer happy; We seek beauty because we no longer believe that we are beautiful. What we are looking for is our «me.» With practice, the four agreements help us restore our «authentic self» and this is the greatest gift we can make ourselves.
