Action trumps permission.
My friend couldn’t have said it any better. As we were engaged in conversation, my mind went back to thinking about how we often operate as adults.
When we get completely bogged down with life, we tend to function within a world of only maintaining the “status quo.” Society loves to tells us (both consciously and subconsciously) what we can or cannot do.
This form of auto-pilot response forces us to think that somehow, somewhere we need a special kind of permission to try something new or take on a different form of action.
Now let’s think back to our childhood years…a time in which many of us enveloped a unique care-free spirit, oftentimes displaying an unwavering bravery and strength that often made us feel capable of conquering anything in the world.
This mindset gave us the capability to feel like we can do anything that we set our minds to. So think about this: If you are wanting to do something towards improving and/or enhancing your life for the better, who’s permission do you really need? Better yet, why do you need someone else’s permission??
To become successful, you must take action into your own hands. Occupy your mind with those bold, audacious dreams you once had as a child. Fill your heart with those passionate ideas, creative visions and vivid imaginations! Act as if you knew that failure was not an option. Taking small, actionable steps towards a desired outcome will happen as long as we get into the action of doing.
