You Have Permission

First, a big Happy New Year to everyone! I don't know what this year holds for you, but I truly wish all the best and God's richest blessings for you and your families.

Now on to this week's post:
There are many expert life/biz coach type folks who will tell you that the stuff you do, the actions you take to reach success are only part of the equation. The other part is what goes on inside including your attitude and that internal dialogue we all have going on in our heads. And that second part sometimes is a bigger player than we consciously realize. Many times it motivates, but all to often for many that inner voice questions, discourages, and stops us in our tracks on the way to our goals and dreams.

At this point, you may think I'm going to get all "just think positive" but you and I both know it isn't that simple and I'm not going to insult your intelligence. What I do want to do though is to give you another bit to think about as you head into 2010.

In my last post in December, I encouraged you to start planning what you want to do this year. Some of you got right to it and others are probably still working on things as I am. And at least a few of you are probably stuck somewhere (or you will be at some point).The thing is you're probably not stuck because you don't have the capability or smarts to move ahead, it's because that inner voice has put up a road block of doubt or fear. That's where the title above comes in. To move past those walls, maybe all you need is the permission to do it you can't give yourself so here you go:

You now officially have permission:
To do something different, to say what you've always wanted to say or to do what you've always wanted to do, to change course, to invest a little money in yourself, to act on a new idea, to make mistakes and mess up, to try again, to start over. You have permission to follow your dreams. It's okay, really, give yourself permission and go for it.

Again, a blessed New Year to you. I look forward to walking with you on your journey as an author.

Good Writing & God Bless,
Cheryl Pickett
