My favorite self-acceptance trait has to be authenticity. I love when someone has total and complete acceptance of themselves. It shows not only in their confidence levels, but also in their ability to relate and be compassionate toward others. Aren’t the people closest to you the ones that you can be the most vulnerable with?

Authenticity breaks down barriers. Most everyone appreciates it because so many of us want to be able to have more of it. If you want an instant connection with others, be authentic. If you share some of your challenges, they will see that you are sincere and they will want to share some of their challenges with you. Together you can help each other Elevate! And by the way, if you ever do open up to someone and show your vulnerability and authenticity and then they do not reciprocate, or pretend that they have  not been challenged by anything similar, then give them a copy of Elevate! We are all works in progress.

What do you need to accept about yourself? Everyone has something they need to accept about themselves. Put a little humor behind it and you won’t turn back. If you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right. Self-deprecating humor is very healthy when it comes from a place of power and self-acceptance. Do you want to get what you want? Accept yourself now!
