Acceptance is the Change you Seek
For most of us, most of the time, acceptance represents a change. A big one.
In all my years of coaching, one thing has been consistent: Unless you acknowledge and accept a problem, you cannot change it. Often, nothing more is necessary in order to get what you want.
We can desire things so intensely that we resist our current status. You may want to lose weight yesterday. You may crave the success that has haunted your dreams. The relationship you need may forever feel out of reach. Accepting your present circumstances – and feelings – may seem counterproductive.
Acceptance always represents progress.
Always. There is nothing about acceptance that keeps you from moving toward what you want. On the other hand, refusing to accept or even consider where you are at present is the very thing that keeps you stuck.
