From the day we were born, we've been wired to seek permission. Whether it was asking our parents to leave the dinner table or raising our hands in school to request a bathroom break, seeking approval is second nature.
Remember those amusing childhood moments? I certainly do! In fact, there was a rather comical incident in my grade one days. I was in desperate need of a restroom visit, hand raised, waiting for the teacher's attention. Regrettably, it was during a lesson, so permission to leave wasn't granted, and well, let's just say my shoes ended up a little damp. But hey, we've all been there, haven't we?
And guess what? Even as adults, we find ourselves doing the permission-seeking dance. Need to leave work early or plan a vacation? It often requires asking for permission. But here's the twist – life isn't about waiting for approval; it's about seizing control!
What Happens When You Don't Obtain External Permission?
Let's explore what occurs when external approval isn't forthcoming. You see, there are countless dreamers and doers in the world who didn't wait for someone else's endorsement. They understood that sometimes, the most crucial permission comes from within.
When you sidestep the need for external validation, remarkable things unfold:
- Empowerment: You step into your own power, realizing you are the architect of your destiny.
- Freedom: Unburdened by the need for external validation, you're free to explore passions, take risks, and set your own course.
- Resilience: Absent external permission, you build resilience, adeptly navigating setbacks and challenges.
- Innovation: Oftentimes, groundbreaking ideas emerge when individuals boldly pursue their vision without waiting for permission.
- Personal Growth: Your journey of self-discovery and personal growth accelerates when you follow your inner compass instead of seeking external guidance.
- Inspiration: By unapologetically granting yourself permission, you inspire others who may be awaiting a sign to pursue their dreams.
So, fellow seekers of inner wisdom, remember that the most potent permission slip you can sign is the one you create for yourself. Your life is yours to live, permission slip or not.
