Quick Note on Your Impeccable Word

If you’ve read don Miguel Ruiz’s book The Four Agreements, you might recall the phrase, “Be impeccable with your word.” Ruiz argues it’s the most important agreement.

He states that with your word, you can go in one direction and strive for excellence. You can act with integrity, love yourself and others, or show your creativity to paint a beautiful image. Your word reflects you; it’s your bond.

However, you can use your words in more than one way. Being less than impeccable can mean using your word against yourself through dishonesty, self-disparagement, or gossip about others. To do so is to betray yourself.

Pay attention to how you use your word. You create your reality with it.
