Unconditional Love of Self

In order to succeed in life, you must first discover ways to accept yourself unconditionally. This means unconditional love and acceptance of who you are.

I am quite certain that you try to be your best and do the best you can. Yet there are times you may not make the correct decisions or act in the most appropriate ways. You may not like what you did and you are tough on yourself. These are times when you may not feel like loving yourself. You think negative things about you, questioning what you have done and the inner critic takes over. The self-criticism continues and before long you begin to reject yourself. With this mindset, you cannot make advances or strides in your life.

When you cannot love and accept yourself unconditionally, how can you expect others to love and accept you unconditionally? Just think about how it feels when a close friend rejects you. It is a very unpleasant feeling. When you reject self, the subconscious is quick to register this information and lock it away. It reminds you constantly of this unsightly person you have informed it of. This will hinder any plans you have to succeed in life.

Unconditional love and acceptance of self must be ingrained in your psyche in order for you to achieve. There is a song that says “learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all”. Unconditional love is conceived within each individual, then is diffuses outward. It radiates from within, attracting others to your world. This draws others in and makes them want to work with you to help you to achieve your goals.

Begin today to accept and love yourself unconditionally. Realize you or no one else is perfect. Learn how to take responsibility for the things you do and forgive yourself. We all make mistakes. Use them as an opportunity to improve your life. Begin to make a list of all the unique qualities you possess. Add to that list everyday. Look at that list everyday to remind you of how unique you are.

Remember change begins with us then the world around will follow. If your want to be loved and accepted unconditionally, you must first love and accept you unconditionally.
