Chapter #16 Self-Acceptance Not Good Enough Feeling Like a Fraud Not Deserving Of This

Quote #16 “I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.” Brené Brown

Followed by my Chapter Introduction:

As we go through life we can all make choices or decisions that we judge ourselves by, we’re all capable of being our own harshest critic. The likelihood is that no one judges us more than we judge ourselves. What we need to do is to get out of our own way, because the path to self-acceptance is self-realisation in knowing that we’re good enough.

As a WorkLife Learning Practitioner and Writer, I know the importance of serving people’s preferred learning style. Some people like the bigger picture — quotes allow that. Other people like more detail — the chapter introductions allow that.

I like the bigger picture, to begin with, then I like detail. So I like both.

What’s your preferred learning style?

Bigger picture, more detail, or both?

First shared in my book: Your WorkLife Your Way.




This publication brings you stories created from questions and answers drawn from WorkLife lessons. You will learn about people’s powerful stories of WorkLife struggles and successes.
