Stop giving those around you so much power by waiting for their permission and approval to go after what you want. We have been taught that success is only a success when someone else gives us the recognition and approval for it to be a success, I say different. Screw the status quo and screw the rule of needing to be chosen to be successful. The only person that needs to give you the permission you need and the approval you need is yourself. Hold onto your power and hold onto your ability to permit yourself and do it for yourself.

We don’t realize how much it takes from us the moment we hand over that power to someone else. That feeling of waiting to be chosen, of not being good enough or smart enough. No one should ever make you feel that way, and the moment you take back your power, permit yourself and give yourself the approval you need, the universe wakes up to your capabilities, doors to new opportunities open, and your entire world starts to change.

I have noticed over the years that more and more women do this, myself included. We wait to be chosen and watch the time pass by when in the corner of our eye, we know we can do it for ourselves but hold back because we have been taught that you have to be chosen to be successful. Sometimes, you just have to take the first step and continue from there. With the world changing so fast, we can no longer afford to wait to be chosen or for permission. We need to take the bull by the horns as they say, and make it happen for ourselves.

There is no time to waste, and your dreams aren’t waiting for someone to give you permission or approval. Right now, they are waiting for you to say ‘’Let’s do it’’ and start working. There is no longer a need for gatekeepers, and that alone should give you tremendous power.

Just think of a powerhouse Boss Babe out there that is doing everything you wish you could do. You watch her make moves effortlessly, make her dreams a reality, create her own business from nothing, and thrive when everyone else is second-guessing their moves. What makes her different from you? Truthfully, nothing other than the fact that she has given herself the permission and approval to do whatever the hell she wants to do and to go after what she wants in life without worrying about what others may say or think. These are the types of women you need to follow for inspiration and use their success as motivation for your own success. If she can do it, you can do it. It’s as simple as that.

All it takes is taking those steps every single day and to continue taking those steps even when you don’t feel like it. You can do it, and it’s time to permit yourself and give yourself the approval to do it.
