Permission is something we don’t actually need, but SO many of us feel we do. I know that I used to want it. A lot.
Because, of course, there isn’t really anyone who is stopping you from doing your Thing, from being as famous as you want to be, from standing in a super-bright spotlight, from doing exactly what you want to do the way you want to do it (given legal parameters of course!).
And yet we ask—and look—for permission.
