Back-to-the-Basics: Permission

Welcome back to another “Back-to-the-Basics” Monday about “Permission.”

Most people wait around to get permission to do anything.  We’re programmed at an early age to raise our hand to answer a question, to go outside and play, and, heck, to go to the bathroom!  So, this programming remains with us throughout our adult lives.

In Dan Kennedy’s No B.S. Business Success book (one of the original NO B.S. books) he says,

“You do not need anybody’s permission to be successful.”

Read that again.

“You do not need anybody’s permission to be successful.”

Look, you can’t wait for someone to come to you and say you can start that business or create that new product, or change the face of the Earth.  You need to go out there and make things happen!  If someone says you can’t do something, go do it!

Heck, we’d still be living in the dark if Thomas Edison would have waited for someone to come around and give him permission to invent the light bulb.

So, don’t sit around waiting for permission like the majority of people… You want something?  Then go take action!
