Dentists: Unlocking the Power of Approval, Acceptance, and Appreciation in Your Life!

August 5, 2023

Dear Dentists,

Dentists: Unlocking the Power of Approval, Acceptance, and Appreciation in Your Life!Today, Coach Heidi Mount wants to dive deep into three fundamental aspects of human nature that influence our thoughts, actions, and emotions - Approval, Acceptance, and Appreciation.

From the very first steps we took as children, we sought the approval, acceptance, and appreciation of our parents. Their excited reactions fueled our desire to repeat those small achievements and learn more about the world around us. As we grew older, this craving persisted, shaping our behavior and decisions throughout school, friendships, and even adulthood.

We've all been there - striving for that elusive A-grade, not because we genuinely wanted it, but because it represented approval, acceptance, and appreciation. This desire, if not managed properly, can lead us down questionable paths in search of fulfillment.

Consider a moment from your past when you found yourself doing something out of character, just to fit in or be accepted by your peers. It could have been an impromptu puff of a cigarette, or perhaps something more severe as a teenager. These actions are rooted in our inherent need for validation and acknowledgement from others.

Fast forward to adulthood, we often find ourselves seeking approval, acceptance, and appreciation from colleagues, friends, and partners. Their responses heavily influence our mood, happiness, and even our confidence to take action or try new things. A negative reaction might deter us from asking for that date, seeking help, or pursuing opportunities that could enrich our lives.

The key to a fulfilling and successful life lies in cultivating SELF - Self-Approval, Self-Acceptance, and Self-Appreciation. When we possess a healthy sense of self-worth, we become less dependent on external validation. Our peace of mind and happiness are no longer at the mercy of others' opinions, and we can take confident steps towards our goals.

So, how can we begin this transformative journey? It starts with introspection and identifying the behaviors that hinder your peace of mind, happiness, and success. Recognize the patterns that hold you back, and then work on mastering them. It won't be an overnight change, but with consistent effort, you'll notice a profound impact on your life.

Remember, as we learn to cherish and embrace ourselves, the world around us becomes a brighter and more welcoming place. With self-approval, self-acceptance, and self-appreciation as your guiding stars, you'll have the courage to take the actions necessary to achieve your dreams and aspirations.

Unlock the power of these three fundamental human desires within yourself, and witness the transformation it brings to your life. Embrace who you are, celebrate your uniqueness, and live a life filled with genuine joy and fulfillment.

Wishing you a journey of self-discovery and growth,

Heidi Mount
