Give Yourself Permission to Live Life Full Out!

give yourself permission“Don’t look to society to give you permission to be yourself.”
– Dr. Steve Maraboli

Most of us are waiting for someone to give us permission to live our lives.

We’re waiting for someone to tell us it’s okay to be ourselves.

We’re waiting for our internal “mommy” and “daddy” to give us their metaphoric nod of approval.

Whether it’s our figurative or literal parents or any of the other prominent men and women in our lives….

So many of us are waiting for their acceptance, their agreement, and their RED Rubber Stamp of Approval in life.

If you want to achieve greatness, you need to stop asking for permission and give it to yourself. You don’t need their validation!

“Why are we waiting for the world to give us permission to be, do and have anything? It’s not the world that can give you what you want… the external world is but a mere reflection of your own innermost reality.”



What I mean is that any objective reality “out there” is skewed by your perception of that reality in your own mind- through your own perceptual filters. You’re not seeing the world as it is… rather you’re seeing the world as you believe it to be!

Your life circumstances are simply a mirrored reflection of your own mind and beliefs. And just like how your image is flipped when looking in a mirror… It’s NOT the world’s permission that we really need. It’s our own!

All a confident person really is… is someone who gives themselves permission to live their life their way. In what ways would your life change if you stopped waiting or asking for permission? How much happier could you be if you finally gave yourself permission to live life full out?
