The Four Agreements Book Tom Brady

What`s in this book that drives Brady to reread it every year? And is it really that different from “A Gronking to Remember”? Gisele may have given Brady the book to read when they started meeting in 2007. The supermodel, now 35, says he first read The Four Agreements in the early `20s in an interview with Origin Magazine. Brady said the book was the guide to the four agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom, a self-help book that says it is “rooted in traditional beliefs of tolerance.” Tired of hearing about Tom Brady? That is not what we thought. His four-game ban was recently lifted (read more here), but that doesn`t mean he didn`t have a lot of stress and nail bites that led to this decision. But fortunately, he had a few tools to deal with it – four of them in fact. If the fact that Tom Brady has read it isn`t enough to convince you that it`s not just a Woo Woo-schein self-help book comparable to something like horoscopes, you know this: the concept is actually pretty simple and the tone is far from “preachy.” It essentially distills some important parts of the ancient Wisdoem into four sentences (below, on GoodRead.com): The book is summarized in such a way as to focus on four life practices to “create love and happiness in your life.” On Amazon.com, the summary says: “Rooted in the traditional beliefs of Totec wisdom, four agreements in life are essential steps on the path to individual freedom. As beliefs change with the maintenance of these agreements, shaman teacher and healer Don Miguel Ruiz says life is “filled with grace, peace and unconditional love.” But from time to time, Brady opens a door inside. In recent years, he mentioned his admiration for a book called “The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom,” a “Toltec Wisdom Book” written by a modern Mexican shaman named Don Miguel Ruiz. A year ago, last fall, in an interview with Boston`s WEEI radio station, Brady described the book as a kind of mantra for my life, suggesting that it helped him deal with the urgent intergalactic crisis that was “Deflategate.” However, words become useless if we use them or use them occasionally, without putting the weight of our thoughts and feelings behind them. A few years ago, one of my clients suggested that I read a book “The Four Agreements” (1983 Amber-Allen Publishing, 140 pages) by Mexican author Don Miguel Ruiz. I had never heard of this book, but later I discovered that this book was also the most popular book by Tom Brady, the New England Patriots football quarterback and one of two players who won five Super Bowls.
