Stop Searching for Others’ Permission to Live Your Life
Are you achieving your goals or the goals someone else has for your life? Even if you think they are your goals, are you sure? Every day, insidiously, our power and control can be eroded if we let it. Often, we are allowing forces beyond our control, and even beyond our consciousness, affect how we make choices and decisions. How many times have you pushed yourself exercising because of being with others in exercise class? Have you ever stayed seated on an airplane because the seatbelt light was on, and you needed to use the bathroom? Then you see someone else heading to the restroom and you use that as permission to get up? We are allowing others to determine what we do in life, and we don’t realize it. Start living your life consciously and deliberately.
