Assess Your Acceptance


You could read about the 10 things to accept in your life in one of my last post. Today I will give you a challenge. Check how high your acceptance
is while testing which things from the list below you can accept.

Assess Your Acceptance

Today I have prepared you an acceptance test. It will show how well this skill is mastered in your case. There are some areas we will explore to find your deepest fears, unforgiven grudge, plenty of judgement and anger.

When you read this post, take a piece of paper and find your score. Mark 0 points for the things you do not accept, 1 for those who you sometimes accept and 2 for the things you accept totally. At the end of the post you will find what your score means.

Don’t forget to have a closer look at the items you totally don’t accept. They are your biggest challenges in life.

Your Score:

Add up your score for each category:

  • Yourself:
  • Your Environment:
  • The Past:

Then sum up all the figures. Bear in mind which of the three categories has got the lowest score. It means that your acceptance needs work there.

0 – 90 – Your acceptance level is very low. Yo need to work on it instantly to become a happy person.

91 – 150 – A bit better, but there are still some areas where your acceptance soar. If you have no items with total acceptance, it means that you really need to pull up your sleeves to be happier.

151 – 180 – Above average. There are some issues that you accept without hesitation, bu you also need to be clearer in many areas where you scored one point. and you probably still struggle with some issues from the past, yourself or your environment.

181 – 240 – Good. You have mastered acceptance in some areas and are fifty-fifty with most of the rest. Try to accept as much of the issues which scored 1 point as possible. Pay attention to the areas where the score was the lowest (e.g. your past.)

241 – 280 – Excellence. Congratulations, you can accept the majority or nearly of the issues from this test. If there is any issue that scored no point, work on it to be even happier.

In a Nutshell

In order to be a happy person, you need to accept your life. This means to be compassionate to yourself, your environment and your past.
