Have you been waiting for someone to give you permission to be, do, or have the things you really want in your life?

From who? And for what?

Most of us have been trained our entire lives to follow instructions and to do things when we are told. We are taught to wait until we are given permission to do something. We go through our childhood and school and our jobs always looking for someone to tell us what to do, right?

We have choices along the way, but they are typically within a clear structure that predetermines our options.

Once you decide to start your own business and to become an entrepreneur, that all has to change if you really want to be successful.

As an entrepreneur, you have to be able to take the bull by the horns… you have to proclaim that you have something of value to provide, and then go provide it.

The trick is to actually step into that freedom and power that you can enjoy instantly once you stop waiting for permission to claim it.

I’ll share more on this topic and one of my recent experiences in this video.

What Is the Bigger Picture?

What do you REALLY want to be doing with your life?

Do you ever have a vision come to you… something that pops into your mind sometimes, maybe during your times of stillness or meditation, or during a nap… that totally freaks you out?

Maybe it causes you to question your ability to carry it out, or you brush it off thinking there’s no way you could ever pull it off?

Maybe you ask yourself,

“Who am I to be doing that?”

That vision is, more than likely, an inside peak at part of your greater purpose in life.

It’s what you are supposed to be doing.

It’s a craving in your heart.

How to Start Moving Toward Your Vision

Once you get in touch with your vision, it’s time to start moving toward it. It’s time to start acting on it now.

Once again, do not wait for permission. Do not wait for all of your ducks to be in a row.

You can do things such as:

  • Subscribe to blogs and newsletters of the people who are already players in the arena you want to play in
  • Reach out to people who are already doing what you want to do
  • Take action
  • Educate yourself
  • Ask yourself, “Who are the people really making a change in this area?” and then contact them.
  • Attend events relevant to your vision and get around the people who are participating in this conversation already

I’ve found that once I start moving toward my vision, even though I typically don’t have a clue how it will come to fruition, things just start falling into place.

The Universe conspires when it sees us taking action on our purpose, and miracles start to happen. This has been my experience every single time I start moving toward my vision.

Be a Leader Right Now

It’s really hard to envision someone as a leader if they’re always waiting for someone to tell them what to do. Isn’t it?

Here’s the key…

If you’re at A and you want to be at Z, just decide to be at Z.

You don’t need to wait for permission, all you have to do is make the quantum leap in your mind. See it. feel it. Be it. Right now.

These things will happen if you keep them in your mind and you take action from where you want to be.

  1. Really needed to hear this. Must be divine direction to your blog page today. Thanks.

      So awesome, Regina. I’m so glad you were directed where you needed to be today. I hope it will inspire you to take the next step in whatever it is you’re wanting to create. xo

  2. Such an inspiring and empowering message here to take action in the direction of our purpose (being love) and life mission (specific role we play on purpose). I’m subscribed to tons of people in the personal development and spiritual awakening community, so I guess the next step for me is to engage with a dialogue as I’m doing here. I’ve long wanted to publish a book that will serve humanity in its evolution from the present stage of
    consciousness to the next level up. Thanks for being such a passionate leader Amy!

      Thanks, Sean. Yes, engaging with like-minded people is always a great thing to do… it’s one of the things that enhances our lives most. I look forward to reading your book! Please let me know when it’s ready.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! xo
