It may sound strange, but it’s true that very often we hold ourselves back from doing something we would really love to do because we’re waiting for permission. The funny thing is though, that you don’t know you’re waiting for permission. You just think of all the reasons why you can’t do the thing you want to do (I’m too old, I don’t know enough, I’m not ready).
If you have a strong desire to do or be something, it’s because it’s important to you. If it’s that important to you, then it’s part of who you are. So what you are really looking for is permission to be yourself.
Nobody can give that to you except you. You don’t need someone else to tell you who you are or what you can do or what you should want. Only you can do that. “You can only be who you are really are, and only you can give yourself permission to express it.”
So give yourself permission today to be who you really are and to do what you really want to do.
