The Importance Of Self Acceptance – Stop Resisting And Find The Peace

Our Better Health

You’re taking a 12-question biology test. You get 10 questions right and 2 questions wrong. You decide, “I’m stupid.” You tell a joke that your friends don’t quite get. You decide, “I always play the fool.” Your boyfriend breaks up with you. You decide, “I’m unlovable.”

When we lack self acceptance we bully ourselves into a rigid pursuit of perfectionism. We mercilessly judge, critique and flog ourselves into an impossible quest that dooms us to failure, guarantees unhappiness, and even induces physical and mental health problems. According to Richard Holden’s book, “Happiness Now!”, “Happiness and self acceptance go hand in hand.”

HERE ARE SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR FINDING SELF ACCEPTANCE:

LAUD YOUR STRENGTHS
Many people scrutinize perceived weakness and are dismissive of their strengths. The more we think about these shortcomings, the more ingrained they become, until they cast a long shadow over our merits. You can focus on your virtues…

Trust Goes Both Ways

LeadToday

Years ago, many years ago actually, I was calling on a candy manufacturer in the Eastern United States. They generously offered me a tour of their building and since there were bowls of my favorite candy all over the place I quickly accepted their offer.

The tour somehow felt a little weird from the start but I couldn?t figure out why. As the tour continued it dawned on me that none of the offices or conference rooms had doors. There were door frames and you could see that at one time there were doors but they had all been removed.

That struck me as very odd so I asked what happened to the doors. One of the founders of the company was giving me the tour and his answer was confusing too. He simply said that ?they? didn?t like rumors.

He went on to say that information is the enemy…

The Value of Being Interested in Others

LeadToday

It’s the kiss of death in sales, and it’s the kiss of death in networking. It is pretty much the kiss of death whenever we are trying to build a relationship. It’s when we talk too much.

Often, in our desire to tell everything we know, we go on and on without letting the other person participate in the discussion. The truth is, if you’re doing most of the talking, you’re not as successful as you could be in your sales career. Your likely not as successful as you could be in life either.

Here?s an idea to try. This week pay particular attention to the amount of time you spend talking versus the amount of time you spend listening. It makes no difference if your conversation is in person or on the phone. It makes no difference if it?s a work conversation or you?re talking with a friend. After…

4 Signs You Are Over-Managing and Under-Leading

Leading with Trust

Magnifying GlassLeadership and management are separate disciplines yet there is a significant amount of overlap between the two. There are many times when leaders have to manage and managers have to lead.

However, in the work I’ve done with leaders and organizations over the years, as well as my own personal experience, I’ve noticed it’s much easier to gravitate toward management activities than it is leadership.

Why is that? The pressures of daily priorities, overwhelming to-do lists, fighting the unexpected fires that arise, and managing the minutiae of organizational life overtakes our focus. As a result, our leadership gets the short end of the deal. We neglect long-term planning, innovating for the future, and developing our team members for their next growth opportunity.

We can avoid letting our management responsibilities devour us if we keep an eye on where we place our time and attention. Here are four signs that may…

Why You Should Have A Conversation

Joy's Corner

Conversations create experiences that stimulate our emotions and drive our behavior.

It’s a way of communicating and it results in creating both an impression and a perception.

We’ve all heard of the saying first impressions matter well so do the perceptions that are created. In fact perceptions impact on creating the impression which in turn affects preference.

So how does that work?

In brand strategy, whilst describing and developing a preferred brand experience, it’s very important to address how the brand perception will be created. This is because perception is the reality!

Why is perception important?

By creating the desired perception a brand can increase the engagement with its employees, customers, and other important stakeholders.

If it’s that important why aren’t businesses doing this?

There are a couple of reasons for this not yet being practiced as part of business operations.

  1. Disengagement: Global data shows high numbers of disengaged…
