Fear based permission
There is this interesting phenomenon I've begun to see in people,
They are waiting for permission.
It can be in the form of a college degree. A societal approval. A nod from a mentor. A family member giving the go ahead. A certification. An author that writes it. A friend that thinks it's not crazy.
People all have their forms of permission. And if this permission is not obtained, they wait.
I see it a lot in my clients. Hell, I've seen a lot of it in myself...cough, cough, why I have a law degree and multiple certifications for wellness.
And nine times out of ten (Doctors are exempt. Please get your damn permission from MULTIPLE PEOPLE), it's a fear based move. It's another reason to put something off. Wait for that permission...FOREVER.
There is no time like the present. So ask yourself, "what permission am I waiting for and can I do it now!?"
