    • 2. Accept Realities <br />Accept yourself<br /><ul><li> Do you have any choice regarding your birth?
    • 3. How about your physical appearance?
    • 4. Does the color of your skin bother you?
    • 5. If you are a cat you can never be a lion.
    • 6. You are a unique creation of God – So accept yourself. </li></li></ul><li>Self Acceptance Allows Change<br />Self Acceptance is to love and be happy with who you are. <br /><ul><li> It’s an agreement with yourself to appreciate, validate, accept & support who you are NOW.
    • 7. Even those parts you’d eventually like to change.
    • 8. We’ve been trained to believe that in order to change, we need to first feel bad about it. </li></ul>Acceptance is actually the very first step in a process of CHANGE. <br />
    • 9. Change Cycle<br />Stage 1 - Loss - In Stage 1 you admit to yourself that regardless of whether or not you perceive the change to be good or &apos;bad,&quot; there will be a sense of loss of what &quot;was.&quot; <br />Stage 2- Doubt -In this stage, you doubt the facts, doubt your doubts and struggle to find information about the change that you believe is valid. <br />Stage 3 - Discomfort - You will recognize Stage 3 by the discomfort it brings. The change and all it means has now become clear and you learn to assimilate this new information in a meaningful way. The Danger Zone The Danger Zone represents the pivotal place where you make the choice either to move on to Stage 4 and discover the opportunities the change has presented or to choose fear and return to Stage 1. <br />Stage 4 - Discovery- Stage 4 represents the &quot;light at the end of the tunnel.&quot; You now can see the options you have and the possibilities this change has presented. You are optimistic about a good outcome because you have choices. <br />Stage 5- Understanding - In Stage 5, you understand the change and are involved in it. You can identify its benefits and acknowledge its usefulness. <br />Stage 6 - Integration - By the time you reach Stage 6 you have stopped looking at &quot;the change&quot; as something different because you have integrated it&apos;s challenges and victories into your life.<br />For information on integrating this assessment tool into a coaching package, or using the tool as part of our teleclass series, contact us. <br />Stage 1 - Loss – there will be a sense of loss of what ‘was’ regardless of whether or not you perceive the change to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’. <br />Stage 2- Doubt – you believe that the change is valid & look for as much information about it … in the process you doubt the facts, doubts the doubts. <br />Stage 3 - Discomfort – Change brings discomfort. Now it becomes clear and you learn to assimilate this new information in a meaningful way. <br />* The Danger Zone – you choose here to either move on to Stage 4 or to return to Stage 1. <br />Copyright 2001-109 Inner Power International<br />
