I Don’t Need Anyone’s Permission To Pursue My Dreams

It is human nature to seek the approval or guidance from those around us when considering our next steps.  However, be selective of who you make a confidant.  One major stumbling block is when you ecstatically share your aspirations and you are confronted with…

  • unconstructive criticism
  • doubt
  • fear
  • your past failures
  • jealousy/envy

Take a good look at your “circle”.  Are they normally supportive of your endeavors?  Do they help you think creatively?  If not, you need a “circle upgrade”.  Seek out likeminded individuals that have similar goals/interests.  Approach those that have had PROVEN success.

Never let what you see for yourself solely rest on the opinions of others.  Ultimately, YOU are responsible for the birth of your dreams because advice and permission are two totally different things.

Affirm this week…I do not need anyone’s permission to pursue my dreams.

What you are internalizing is that you are not seeking approval to be successful.

Affirming Question of the Week

  1. What steps will I take this week to begin the process of a “circle upgrade”?

Please post your thoughts so others may be enlightened by your insight.  Also, freely share this blog with others.

  1. Yes, yes, yes, and YES!!! I’m loving this, Nicole! You are correct: we don’t need permission or someone else’s stamp of approval to go out there and get done what is in us to do. So many of us waste precious time and energy waiting for that pat on the head and it slows us down and can put our dream out of reach. Ever meet anyone up in age who was full of shouda-coulda-wouldas?
