This agreement includes the integration of the first three chords into everyday life and also the exhaustion of one`s own potential.  It is a question of doing one`s best individually, which is different from the different situations and circumstances that the individual may encounter.

By incorporating the first three chords and giving the best of himself in all facets of life, the individual will be able to live a life without grief or self-irony.  Be impeccable in my own words, don`t take things personally, don`t make assumptions, and always do my best, these four promises are hard to keep, but once I became aware of these four promises, things changed in a positive direction.
