Acceptance

Leave a comment Standard

You may not be where you want to be. You may not be able to do the thing you want so badly. Perhaps you have not become the person you want to become. Can you accept who you are and where you are currently at in your life? I know I struggle with this at times, but when I finally do just accept the current conditions of my life, everything becomes easier. No more denial, no more fighting – its only forward progress from there.

Ideas have always been easy for me, but patience and execution have not been. Launching my first successful business really taught me what happens when I take an idea and really commit to it. When my wife and I moved to Pennsylvania, I was determined to be my own boss. I have worked many jobs throughout my life by that point and I knew that it was time to just take the leap of faith and be an entrepreneur. It only took us eight months to be able to survive off the business and after almost two full years we have finally shaped it the way that works best for us. It took a lot of hard work and learning from mistakes that we had made.

On a spiritual level, when you are able to find the center of your head, a place of neutrality, and can clearly see yourself and release your judgement and resistance, then you are finding acceptance. Sometimes we are not meeting the expectations of others or even ourselves. When you let that go, you free up your energy to move forward. Resistance will only slow you down.

Acceptance can be one of the most difficult things to achieve, especially when its regarding a very charged memory. Maybe there is trauma or you just had a very bad experience and it can certainly take time find neutrality with it all, but when you find acceptance, you are freeing up your energy and you are no longer being a victim. You are no longer allow your memory to control you. With neutrality and acceptance, you begin to reclaim your personal power!

You are dealt a hand of cards and you go through life having experiences, both good and bad. There will be times you will get stuck and often those are the times that require the most acceptance. It’s not easy and it may not be fun, but it will allow you to release and move on. Just because you have had negative experiences or dealt a bad hand of cards at birth doesn’t mean you have to let that dictate the rest of your life. By accepting everything as it is, you are free to move forward, but the question is, what will you move forward to? It may have nothing to do with the cards you were offered in the beginning of your life. Perhaps you go off and create a life for yourself. A life that even surprises you! šŸ™‚
