Can something as seemingly insignificant as childhood playground games demonstrate how unconscious learning can influence your future success and personal dreams? Consider this: Mother, May I? Simon Says.... Red light/Green light. On the surface, these are just silly games. But their message resounds—do not act without permission; if you do, you are out! Oddly enough, many of us are still playing the adult version of these games. We wait for the green light from our parents, siblings, or others before we make a move. We depend on the opinions of significant others to determine the choices we make. We do what "Simon" says at the expense of our authenticity. We play it safe. We avoid. We dumb ourselves down to pacify the egos of others. We act as if we don't know what to do to change the negativity in our lives when, in fact, we do.
Humorous, yet frank and inspiring, 'Giving Myself Permission: Putting Fear and Doubt in Their Place' is a transformative, self-coaching book that will help you lessen the grip of the emotions that sabotage your success, and end the addiction of seeking the approval of others.
Addressing five emotions that frustrate and discourage our efforts towards success, 'Giving Myself Permission' details three transformational shifts that will help you gain clarity and put fear and doubt in their place. As it exposes the real culprit behind patterns of self-sabotage, 'Giving Myself Permission' also provides practical ways to challenge fundamental assumptions and basic thought processes, and offers useful exercises that will reconnect you with your potential and your purpose. 'Giving Myself Permission' – there is power in these three words.
