December Powerful Word – ACCEPTANCE – Week 1

This week, we’re talking about acceptance of ourselves. Hopefully, as you look back on this year, you can highlight many areas of improvement, achievement and positive risk-taking for which you are proud. For those we teach, we want them, too, to be able to highlight these accomplishments. It’s important to also look at the areas where we fell short — especially if they are keeping us from moving forward. As Brendan Francis once said; “Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”  How does acceptance of oneself play out in life? As a leader, how can acceptance of one’s areas of challenge help others move behond their limits? This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to rate yourself on a scale from 1 to 10 on your acceptance of yourself and your current challenges. How can you increase your score so you can move forward?
