Inspire Moment #113: Socially Accepted or Self-Accepting

Most of this world seems to be more concerned with being Socially Accepted (fitting in, gaining the approval of others) than being Self-Accepting (embracing your true self with all of your unique imperfections).  Well, it doesn’t have to be this way for you.

Think about it this way…what if you re-frame how you look at your imperfections and choose to embrace all of you?  And really, why are we so concerned with what the average person out there thinks of us anyway?

You can make the choice each morning to be Self-Accepting by taking off the façade and just being you.  That might be scary, but the more you practice being you, the more natural and comfortable it will feel.

God created you just the way you are, perfectly imperfect.  What a gift!  Life is a gift and it’s what you make of it.  When I choose to let go and embrace my imperfections to make the choice to be Self-Accepting, I can tell you, it’s absolutely freeing!  You can “test it out” for yourself today and it starts with letting go of what other people think, letting go of trying to gain the approval of others, and letting go of trying to be someone you aren’t.

Below are four statements that can help you feel more Self-Accepting.  Speak these throughout the day and see how it feels…

  1. I am Perfect just the way I am.
  2. I am choosing to be Self-Accepting.
  3. I was designed this way for a reason.
  4. I really am Perfect just the way that I am!

You get to make a choice each morning and it’s up to you!

Inspire Moment #102: Take Out the Garbage

It can overflow, become heavy, and it can even get a little smelly.  I’m talking about garbage, but specifically to the kind that can build up in your MIND.  Welcome to Inspire Moment #102 “Take Out the Garbage.”

Schedule some time ASAP to throw out, release, and burn that negative self- talk, those garbage thoughts that creep up and get old and smelly in your head.   You know the ones I’m talking about, the ones that nag you and keep you from getting to where you want to go.  Often times we don’t even realize that it’s garbage, because it becomes our routine thought pattern.  Coach Angie is here to inspire you to take it out TODAY!  If it’s keeping you from moving forward and evolving in any way, if the thoughts are not positive in any way, if you are feeling held back in any way, have you feeling stuck in the same routine in any way, or sinking in quicksand in any way, IT IS GARBAGE and it’s time to take it out.

I have several coaching strategies on how to, but the key step for me to share and encourage you with is to set a deadline as to WHEN you will take care of your trash.  Set a deadline.  Sure, you can keep it there for another couple weeks but it’s only going to get worse.  I will type it again…set a deadline to release, throw out, and get rid of the trash.  The first step might be the hardest, but the second step will be less smelly.  It’s time to take the trash out!
