ARE YOU WAITING FOR SOMEONE’S PERMISSION?
When we were little kids:
We asked if we could have juice.
We asked if we could ride our bike up the street.
We asked if we could go to a friend’s house.
If you wanted to go on the field trip, you needed a signed permission slip.
As we got older, we didn’t need to ask for permission for the simple and smaller things but that practice of having to ask permission had been engrained in us. Many of us have never overcome that need to ask and seek permission. We are going through life looking for validation of our dreams. We are hoping someone will give us permission to go bigger. We are wanting for a person to “tap us on the shoulder” and tell us that we are ready for the next step. The thing with wanting permission — is that it isn’t coming. No one is going to give you permission to be great, to chase your dream, to take the necessary steps to progress your life. But here is the amazing thing about your vision: YOU DON’T NEED ANYONE’S PERMISSION. Seriously, you do not need anyone to tell you that you are ready. You do not need someone to say “the time is now.” The same way you don’t stop and ask if you are allowed to cross the street anymore, or ask if you can go over to a friend’s house... you do not need to seek validation for your dream or permission to chase it. All you have to do is make a declaration to yourself that you are no longer going to sit and wait... you will not wait for something that is never coming. “I don’t know how” ...is no longer a crutch. “I’m not sure how to do that” ... can no longer hold you back. Your success for moving toward your dream is not waiting on the decisions, validation, approval, permission of anyone EXCEPT YOURSELF. Grant yourself approval to be great. Validate your own dreams. Decide that you are finished with waiting on others. Give yourself permission to succeed. ITS MONDAY!!! Have a great week everyone! - www.PhillipAndrew.co/blog - 11.13.17
