You are now listening to Leverage for Growth. Hey everybody this is Jesse P. Gilmore founder of Niche in Control and creator of the Leverage for Growth, welcome to the daily leverage edition. 

Today’s topic is this “No More Waiting for Permission”. Sit back, relax and welcome to today’s daily leverage.


So this morning, I was doing my morning routine of stacking and reflecting on a conversation I had with a mastermind group yesterday about the concept of waiting for permission.


In life, we have times when we have all the answers of the questions that held us back before. 


We know what we need to do. 


We have all of the pieces of the puzzle and they are aligned for you to succeed. 


All you need to do is make the moves forward. 


Yet, many times we may have everything we need but for some reason we are waiting


We wait for permission to do the thing we know we must 


We wait for it being a perfect moment but that moment never comes


We wait for others to understand and accept what we are doing or planning to do


Only to realize that there is always a group of people that don’t approve or understand what you are doing


This waiting game is death


It is the land of maybe


The land of maybe gets no results


There are diminishing returns to great ideas that are left dormant 


Many times we wait for permission


When all we need to do is to give ourselves the permission to move forward 


Regardless of what others say


Regardless of what others believe to be true


Regardless of anything outside of yourself 


You must give yourself permission to move forward


To rise


To expand


To grow 


To become who you were meant to become


To step into your awakening of your higher purpose


Give yourself permission today and free yourself of the land of maybe 


Why is this important?


Many times as entrepreneurs, we are waiting 


We wait and contemplate 


We dwell in the land of maybe


This cycle kills us from the inside 


It comes down to simply giving ourselves permission to win. 


You are playing to win 


Not anyone else’s game 


Just your own


By realizing that no one is going to give you permission other than yourself


You only have one option


Give yourself permission 


Or watch others rise around you and do the thing you felt called to do because they moved forward when you didn’t 


It doesn’t have to be that way


Now it is time for daily leverage.


Where in your world whether in your life or business, have you been waiting for permission?


Is it in your life with your health or body? 


Is it in your life with your spirituality or self-direction? 


Is it in your relationships with your spouse, partner or kids?


Is it in your business or finances or team?


Once you have located where you have been waiting for permission and you know what you need to change. 


My question to you is this…


What are you willing and able to do about it today?


That is the end of our daily leverage. This is Jesse P. Gilmore and you have been listening to the Leverage for Growth podcast.
