Accept and build is one of the most powerful Play Theory principles! On today’s show we take a deep dive into the power of accepting and building on offers that come our way in life. What does it mean to accept and build? It means we validate and contribute to the thoughts and offers from those around you. It means being an optimistic builder. Whether it’s Martial arts, improv, or marriage, the concept is the same: we accept what comes our way and add to it. A karate student accepts the energy of a punch directed at his head and redirects it into a defensible posture.  An improviser accepts an offer by her scene partner to be a mad scientist and so she describes her laboratory, shuddering at the imagined thunder and lightning. In a healthy marriage partners accept each other’s ideas and feelings building trust and well being. This is the power of acceptance, it builds while rejection destroys. 

This Week’s PRO TIP is: 

This Week’s PRO TIP is: Practice saying the word “yes” in your daily conversations where you would normally be tempted to say no. Remember that this does not mean you are literally accepting every offer, but rather you are accepting the person and validating them. Practice saying the word “Yes” then add more to whatever part of the statement you can agree with. In the US with all of the election discussions going on, you might consider saying something like this when the topic comes up with someone you disagree with: - “Yes the election is very important and I’m confident we both want thFAcebooke best scenario for all involved.” Note that you don’t have to agree on which scenario… 😉 Validate, be a builder this week!

On today's show we discuss the powerful principle of Let Go & Play. We dive into what it takes to let go and play, leave your ego at the door and be humble which ups the fun and helps us live life to its fullest. This means leaving your comfort zone and taking chances. Play is perfect for this as it lowers the stakes in any given situation allowing for greater risk taking which is why it is a powerful tool for learning. When we accept that mistakes are opportunities to learn we can be empowered by our past choices. We become teachable and open to new ways of thinking that improve our life experience.

For our PRO TIP this week...we’re giving you some homework. Pick an activity that YOU’VE NEVER DONE BEFORE and try it out. If you’re struggling to think of one, go find a dance instructional video. You could look up clogging or the shuffle step on Youtube. Maybe it’s the waltz. Try it out and notice what you tell yourself as you will inevitably make mistakes while learning these new steps. Can you forgive yourself and accept that mistakes are a necessary part of going somewhere you haven’t been yet? Remember it’s feedback
