Who Writes Your Permission Slips?

Things your story doesn’t stop you from:

  1. Exercising
  2. Learning to meditate
  3. Focusing on wellbeing
  4. Drinking enough water
  5. Creating a morning and evening routine
  6. Asking for help when you need it
  7. Figuring out your primary motivators
  8. Becoming extraordinary
  9. Dedicating yourself to excellence
  10. Reading
  11. Learning
  12. Being kind
  13. Being compassionate
  14. Working towards a better future
  15. Imagining possibilities
  16. Listening to others
  17. Getting a good job


You are free to do these things.


However, your story also does not stop you from:

  1. Complaining
  2. Giving up
  3. Eating junk food
  4. Worry
  5. Self-abusing yourself with negativity
  6. Attacking at others, verbally or physically
  7. Being lazy
  8. Making excuses
  9. Being arrogant
  10. Being selfish
  11. Being hateful
  12. Judging others
  13. Procrastination
  14. Indulging but hating your inner critic
  15. Staying stuck
  16. Hating your job
  17. Continuing to be depressed or anxious without asking for help
  18. Refusing help when it is offered


You are free to do these things.


You don’t need permission from anyone or anything to do these things.  Could it be true that YOU are the one writing your permission slips?
