The Accepting What Is IQ Matrix will help you to make peace with your current predicament no matter how awful, discouraging or uncomfortable it might seem in the present moment. When you learn to make peace with your current life and circumstances without emotional resistance, you develop the mental capacity and the necessary perspective to handle things in the most advantageous way possible. Even though things might seem bad right now, an unhelpful perspective and a poor mental attitude will only make things worse. The only way to make the best out of the situation is to accept what is and then do what you can with what you have to make things better.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Accepting What Is IQ Matrix:
- The Value of Acceptance: The first two branches explore what it means to accept things as they are without resistance. To accept things as they are, requires certain things from you. This is not so much about “doing something”, it’s rather a mindset you bring into every life predicament. It’s about embracing where you are so that you can move forward with a more resourceful mindset into the future. You will also discover that accepting “what is” has a number of unexpected advantages that can give you even more peace of mind when life hands you a lemon.
- How to Accept What Is: The final two branches of this IQ Matrix break down a five-step process you can use to help you get into the habit of accepting whatever life throws your way without resistance. The first step involves making peace with the situation, the second step requires you to let things go, the third step involves clarifying your expectations, the fourth step encourages you to search for answers, and the final step helps you pave the way forward to potentially improve your situation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively learn how to make peace with your life and circumstances no matter how awful they may appear to be in the present moment. It’s only after you make peace with how things are right now that you acquire the necessary resourcefulness to improve the situation moving forward into the future.
