The idea of Self Acceptance is close to the Self Concept
Now that I have created my abstract values and tested them by slotting my main roles into the template, I am comfortable that the abstract values are who I am. The next step I am making is a self acceptance statement. The self acceptance statement is something that I can repeat regularly to reinforce my core values and to validate why I am worthwhile as a person, regardless of any of my roles.
1. I accept and love my mind, body and spirit unconditionally. I am grateful for the gifts and talents given to me.
2. I forgive myself unconditionally for all past mistakes and have learned from them to become a better person.
3. I like the fact that I am authentic, committed, trustworthy and honest.
4. I am proud of being a visionary, to dream of a better future and to be creative.
5. I love being compassionate and caring and I am a great companion, taking time to know and understand my friends, who I choose carefully.
6. I am proud to lead and work effectively and diligently in a team, striving for excellence.
7. I love to be laid back and respectful, quiet, consistent and courteous. I am fun with a dark sense of humor.
8. I enjoy the journey of life and I am careful not to attach strongly to the outcome of any process so that I may be blessed with what I need in any form that it may come.
Self concept is used in the belief/emotion/actions cycle. The Self concept reinforces a belief, that in turn affects our emotions. The emotions affect our actions to reinforce the belief.
