Dallas Travers: The Meaning of Life… Mastering Unconditional Self Acceptance

travers_dallas_2071Excellence Reporter: Dallas, what is the meaning of life?

Dallas Travers: Life is all about learning, practicing and perfecting unconditional self acceptance.  As we grow, learn lessons, experience success and also failures, we’re handed opportunities to maintain a positive self regard.

My daughter taught me this lesson. At 15 months, she’s learning something new every day. While learning to walk, she fell a lot. But also picked herself back up and put one tiny foot in front of the other until one day she was actually running. During this process, I never thought, “What the heck is wrong with her?  Why can’t she just walk already?” Yet, often I hold those rigid expectations of myself.

So, the lesson… the meaning of life is to honor our inner child and master unconditional self acceptance. When we learn to treat ourselves with the same patience, compassion, love and acceptance that we easily practice with babies, we’ve accessed the meaning of life.
