If You Want to Achieve Greatness Stop Asking for Permission – Unknown

We tend to allow a lot of negative things to control our lives. Negative people, tough situations, and destructive habits all have a way of sneaking up on us and before we know it, we are subject to their power. Instead of looking at each moment as a chance to prove these unhealthy burdens in our life weak, we often find ourselves letting them take over.

I think we can all agree that at some point or another, when we’ve had the chance to face our fears or stand up for what’s right, we’ve ended up asking permission from the exact negative forces we try to avoid. We tend to put what is best for ourselves second and our fears first – allowing them to gain control and feel strong.

Giving our anxiety a false sense of power can be disastrous and we must try to steer clear of that circumstance in any way possible. We must fight the urge to ask our fears permission to challenge ourselves. Our trepidations will only hold us back; they won’t allow us to be our best selves. When it comes to improving our lives, the only permission we need is from ourselves.

About B.G.

Hi. I enjoy writing and sharing my experiences with others. For many years, I have struggled with anxiety and know how difficult it is to deal with something so seemingly limiting. My hobbies include: writing, reading, watching TV, and working hard to get through my anxiety. I hope that through my writing I can help others realize that they are not alone in their struggles and that they can overcome their obstacles! I currently have blogs at www.gettingthroughanxiety.wordpress.com and www.restinpieceblog.wordpress.com - In addition, I am the author of the fantasy-horror novel, Rest in Piece and short story collection, Abstract Clarity.

  1. Inspiring! And so true! Great post

  2. Totally agree! I believe limits are self set and we can achieve more than we believe we can. More than what others say we can and much more than what society and media would have us believe.
