Acceptance and Commitment

Practicing Acceptance in Acceptance and Commitment Coaching

A big part of living your life using acceptance and commitment strategies is the acceptance part.

Acceptance changes your life once you understand how to achieve it, but a lot of people struggle with how to do it.

In this video, I talk about acceptance and give you some examples of how to practice acceptance in your life.

How acceptance and commitment coaching improves your relationships

My experience is that people often put their frustration and feelings on others.

They did this; they acted like this, they say this, they are like this, they are this kind of person.

This is coupled with a desire that the other person needs to change.

How do I get them to see how frustrating their behaviour is?

Even just after one session of acceptance and commitment coaching, you realise that it isn't the other person causing your suffering but your thoughts, stories and feelings.

What's your capacity?

In this video, I take a look at a concept I came across in Daniel Priestley's book Oversubscribed: How to Get People Lining Up to Do Business with You.

In the book, Daniel talks about the concept from a business point of view, how many clients can you actually serve?

How many hours can you actually work in a day?

What I like about the concept is that you can apply this concept to the larger things in your life.

How much capacity do you have in your life for doing the things you love to do?

We understand that we have limited time in our life but very few of us get real about actually how much time we have and how we want to spend it.
