Responsibility Doesn’t Need Permission
February 20, 2021
We spend all our time seeking permission.
Permission to do the things we want to do, permission to go where we want to go, permission to become who we want to become.
Taking permission is a way to transfer accountability to those giving it. If something goes wrong, we can say, “it’s not on me.”
But, there is one thing that does not require permission-Taking responsibility. When we take responsibility for anything, we take ownership of our actions and the consequences that flow from them.
When we take responsibility, we have the permission of the entire world, even without asking for it.
