Sometimes we just need to hear someone else say it out loud: “You’re not crazy.” “You’re on the right track.” “You can do that.” “You can do this.” I call it giving leaders permission. One of the greatest values of having a mentor or coach in our lives, is having a safe place where we can process through the decisions we are wrestling with, and hear someone else tell us we’re not crazy for thinking what we’re thinking! We need permission! Sometimes the key that unlocks our future is having someone give us permission to do what we feel deep down we need to do.
So today, I thought I would send out permission far and wide. If you’re reading this post, I’m praying God will use me to give you permission!
You have permission to be still.
You have permission to take a chill pill. You have permission to rest. Take a day off. Take a week off. You have permission to plan your Summer Vacation now. You have permission to think long term and finishing well. This is not a 40-yard dash. It’s an Ultra-Marathon! I give you permission to be still!
