If you want more knowledge of how Arnold thinks, take a look at our summary of his totally autobiography Recall. He`s a very inspiring guy. In this book, he says: “My definition of life is to always have excitement; It`s the difference between life and life. I think that many of us in our work can fall into the opposite precise attitude of doing the minimum necessary not to get fired. “The third agreement is not an assumption. We tend to make assumptions about everything. The problem with the hypothesis is that we think they are the truth. One could swear that they are real. The fourth agreement gives readers 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.  That`s it for this book! Don Miguel`s words are so simple, but so powerful. I hope you have learned a lot about the origin of your old beliefs and rules and how to adopt new agreements to live better in the future.

Although Napoleon Hill called his book Think and Grow Rich, he even recognized the power of the action taken. In fact, this book became one of the first really popular self-help books, and it is still popular today because ideas are always priceless.
