I’m struck by how many of us don’t live in a way where we are authentically doing what and who we are. I meet so many wonderful and dynamic women who really do not know the power they possess and all that they have to offer. Sometimes we feel like we don’t have permission to fully go after what we truly want in life. Some feel like they’ve become too damaged by life to really make a difference. Or maybe you’re feeling like you’re too old or it’s too late to follow your dreams. As long as you’re still breathing…IT’S NOT TOO LATE!
You have to give yourself permission to want more, seek more, do more, and achieve more. And, IT’S OKAY to desire all of that and some! When you finally get it, you get it, and then…Permission Granted! You’ve granted yourself permission and you’re finally empowered to succeed. Here’s what you need to know to “get it”.
Know that you have a lot to offer!
Each of us has life experiences that are unique to us. We have gifts, talents, passions, interests, and learned skills; and all of them are expressed in a way that’s unique to us. We can have a similar gift but only you can do what you do like you do. We can have similar life experiences but we certainly did not handle them in the exact same way. We could have reached a similar level of success in our lives (that we sometimes don’t even really count as success but it is) and yet reached it using different techniques. All of these things make us unique. And our experiences and successes coupled with our distinct personalities is what we have to offer to the world—to the people we encounter and who we are assigned to impact. Those unique things and experiences help define why we’re here. They help define our divine purpose.
Yet, what’s so interesting is that so many of us hesitate to step out and use the power within that we have (our capabilities and abilities) to really step out in a big way, in a bold way to go after what we really want in life. We hold back! You know you want more, but you hold back! Stop it!
Know why you’re holding you back?
Is it fear? Many times fear will stop you from expressing 100% of who you are and getting the benefit from everything you’ve experienced in life. You have this nagging little voice telling you that you’re not good enough. That same voice asks you, “who do you think you are?”, or “what are people going to say?” I’ve learned to answer that last question with a big – WHO CARES!!??
You have way too much to offer to be holding back. Not only that…do you mean to tell me that after everything you’ve been through— all of the trials, all of the ups and downs, all of the betrayal, all of the hurt and pain that you’re actually going to let fear ROB YOU of what you really want and deserve? I think not!
Know that you have the power to SNAP OUT OF IT!
It’s time to snap out of it. Get help! Sometimes you need help to snap out of it. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong that. We all need help at some point in our lives and have to set aside the pride and GET HELP! Getting someone to help shake you loose from your day to day humdrum is sometimes exactly what the doctor ordered. This is one of the reasons I started my annual Permission Granted Women’s Empowerment Seminar, to help women just like you snap out it and give yourself permission to follow your dreams and reach whatever success in life you truly desire.
