I’ve lost count the amount of times someone has said “Thank you, for giving me permission to be me.” when I am going through their behaviour profile results, or their core values analysis report. But I have done nothing but hold up a mirror.
Why is it so ingrained in us that we have to wait for permission to shine? That the correct etiquette is to wait for the right time, the right opportunity the right situation.
What if that moment never comes? What if you never shone the way you were meant to? What if you never reached your capacity because you were waiting.
I’ve seen people who have said these words to me unleash their magnificence upon the world. I’ve seen then blossom, bloom and succeed in ways they never dreamt of. But it wasn’t me that gave them permission. It was their reflection in the mirror that they saw.
“As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others.” Marianne Williamson.
So if you held up a mirror to yourself… today… what would you see from someone else’s perspective? What would give you permission to stand in your true light?
What would give you permission to be who you were truly meant to be?
So what’s stopping you?
