That Celebrity Interview: Don Miguel Ruiz

Don Miguel Ruiz

By Valder Beebe

I was introduced to Mr. Ruiz through his bestselling book, The Four Agreements. The statements from the book have stayed a part of my life from The Four Agreements:

1. Be impeccable with your word.

2. Don’t take anything personally.

3. Don’t make assumptions.
