Too often we look for others to give us the solutions to our own problems or when we have our solutions or best next steps, tell us when we can implement them. But what if we own that it’s our own permission that we need to grant instead of others. What if despite (or in light of) being the talented, hard-working, and intelligent leaders we are, we unwittingly overcomplicate or hesitate to employ our solutions by putting the onus on others?
When it comes down to it, we are actually the ones that hold the keys to the work and life we desire. Unfortunately, we’re often also the ones holding ourselves back from receiving them too.
Perhaps you’ve sat down and gained clarity on your aspirational vision and goals for the immediate future, but are unsure what to do next. What’s holding you back? Are you overwhelmed, overworked, or hesitant to make your next move? It may be as simple as giving yourself permission.
Maybe you’re someone who needs to give yourself permission to… step back, step forward, earn more, earn less, say “yes,” say “no,” delegate tasks, simplify, let it be easy, or feel joyful. Deep down there’s something you need to give yourself permission and to allow yourself to do, experience, or have. Regardless of how hard you work, you will never get what you want if YOU don’t first give yourself permission and allow it to be that great. And you don’t need to wait for someone else to give you that consent.
In this episode, I share:
- How to know if granting yourself permission is what’s holding you back
- Why you don’t need outside permission to begin doing what you want
- How to break the habit that holds 99% of leaders back
- How EXACTLY intelligent leaders unwittingly overcomplicate getting what they want
- How to give yourself the right permission in order to bring your vision and goals into fruition.
