If you ever want to do something that you strongly believe in, that may potentially turn you into a “success” and you do not want to be stopped before you even started, then stop asking for permission. Instead give the world notice that you are going to do whatever it is that you want to embark on. Do not give them the pleasure of talking you out of it by asking for permission, opinions and the likes because some people like nothing more than seeing you remain as status quo. Often times it is not even about you, that is just how they hide behind their own fear of leaping into their dreams. So make a point to have none of that in your life. Let them deal with their own issues sans you. You just let them know that you are indeed ready to step into your own greatness.
