So often in life, we live vicariously through other people.

We let other people tell us how we should live. We wait for other people to give us permission to make big choices.

Well guess what? You do not need permission. You don’t have to wait for anyone’s permission to go after what you want. I’m here to tell you that you can’t always live through other people.

Sometimes, to really move forward and make progress, you just have to try something for yourself.

And sometimes it will feel like you’re going it alone.

But you’re not.

Today, I want to help you make progress. I want to help you take those steps you’ve been afraid to take. To get closer to your dreams.

And you have to do it yourself. You have to try it yourself. No one else can do this for you.

So I want you to ask yourself, what is that thing that you’ve been wanting to try? What have you been wanting to accomplish, but holding off on, because no one has given you permission to do it yet?

What is that thing that you want to do that makes you nervous?

Once you have the answer to that question, I want you to write it down. It’s so important to get those ideas out of your head and into action. A great first step is to get it down on paper.

Then I want you to write three steps you can take to get closer to your goal. So often we don’t think of what we want as actually achievable. Seeing the tangible, practical steps you can take to get closer to what it is that you want will show you that yes, you actually can do it.

Finally, I want you to tell someone else about it. You don’t need anyone’s permission to go for your dreams, but having their support is so unbelievably helpful. And when you talk about it, it’s more likely to happen.

Stop waiting around. It’s time to take real action — action that will take you places. It’s time to stop waiting for someone else to validate your dreams. It’s time to take your dreams into your own hands.
