When growing up, a subconscious paradigm deeply rooted in our being is the need to ask for permission.

As children, we are taught to always ask for permission before doing something. If we fail to do so, we are often punished. This happens at school, at home, and in sports.

After repeating this behavior for many years during our formative period, it becomes so ingrained that we believe we need to ask permission for anything we want to do in this world. Despite this not being conscious, we have an inner need to get approval from someone.

Later in life, this manifests as seeking permission from friends, family, or our social circle for the life decisions we're making. It's typically hidden under the false premise of seeking advice.

One habit you need to break is the need to get permission. As you grow up and develop independence, the need for permission factually vanishes. Yet we often keep ourselves from making the decisions we want, all because we were taught to ask for permission for so many years. This typically ends in some misery that is entirely self-inflicted.

When it comes to your life, you need to realize and embody that you can do anything you want. There will be consequences, but you have the power to make the most difficult decisions by yourself, without the need to get permission from anyone or anything. Do your thing, and do it now.
