Who Do You Need Permission From?

This weekend I had a Huge Epiphany! It didn't come just by itself.

I challenged myself. Big Time.

I sat in front of 45 successful female entrepreneurs at SigrunLive in Zurich - the super exciting Business Event hosted by my business coach Sigrun - and asked for feedback.

So if you're even a bit like me - a highly sensitive introvert with a burning desire to make it out there - you NEED to do scary stuff.

As in really - knee-wobbling-ugly-crying scary.

I asked these amazing women, many of them own 6 and 7 figures businesses, why I still felt small and SO NOT IN CONTROL. 

Holy fuck that was a scary thing. But you know what?

If you feel that burning desire to make it work and have clear goals, you simply need to do things that take you waaaaay out of your comfort zone.

So, I stood there and looked at all these kind, smart, friendly faces. I realized: all these women want is to see me reach my goals.

And right there it struck me. Like a thunder bolt.

I am waiting for permission from SOMEONE ELSE!

I know!

The only one who can actually give me permission to make a lot of money, to be seen, to be successful, to be out there... is me.

The only one who can give YOU PERMISSION to spread your wings and fly is YOU.

You don't need ANYONES permission. Not from old schoolmates, not from parents, partners, friends, neighbours. You don't need permission from your coach or your teacher. You don't need permission from people you don't even know.

You can just go and do it.

Isn't that amazing?

I just wanted to share this with you, because if you're still waiting for things to happen and nothing happens, it might be time to give yourself permission to shine that wonderful light.

With love 


P.S. And after an insight you take action, right? Well, I did! 
I tell you more about that later, but if you're already working with me, or will work with me in the future you will SO benefit from my bolt action too!
