Getting Permission

Getting Permission

Looking around at success stories in business or in life, there is a few things that seem to be recurring themes:

  • Success often follows unconventional behavior
  • Permission to act isn’t usually sought, desired, or needed

Too often I run into people unwilling to risk because they need permission to act.

Risk entails potential loss. And just as potentially, great gain.

No one can ever grant you enough permission in the world that mitigates risk to zero. But many use the lack of permission as just that excuse to not act on whatever their desires are, because they are scared of the potential failure that may await them when they make the leap to chase their dream.

Don’t ask for permission. Weigh the risks. Go and do.
