Seeking Permission

I’ve noticed a trend lately: people seem to be waiting for permission to choose not to follow the herd. It's Not About the Tights

What’s that about?

You Are The Author of Your Life

If you don’t like Facebook, don’t use it. If you don’t want to tweet, don’t. If you hate going to the gym, find another way to get healthy. You make all these choices. You’re the author of your life.

“But my boss makes me.” That’s a choice, too. You choose the interactions you have. You can disagree with me, but it’s not so. You choose everything. You choose where you work, whether you work, how you execute that work. It’s all you.

Permission is Yours

In It’s Not About the Tights, I write about permission being one of the four most important elements of personal bravery. This bravery is what fuels your decisions, what empowers your choices, and what gives you the life you intend to have. It’s that choice to stop letting life make your choices for you.

Permission is about claiming your crown. You can choose what you want to do next. You can choose how you respond. You can decide that now is a great time to get strong.

Don’t wait for others to grant you this permission. Be brave. Take it for your own.

And if you want some backup, some support, some temporary permission, I have it here. Note: you don’t need a Kindle to read a Kindle ebook. You can use an app for your Mac or PC, or even a web browser. : )
