Welcome to Permission to Succeed

In reading a post on Team RWB’s blog post I found myself relating to the author.  She was attending a Storytelling and Leadership Camp.  Part of this camp was writing and telling her story.  Well that is enough right there to make one unpack their bags and stay home!  Cleaning horse stalls or pig pens is more enjoyable than doing that!

Abbi, the author of the blog post writes:
“On that first night, we were asked to write ourselves a permission slip. We were supposed to write something on it that we were giving ourselves permission to do during camp.”

Permission to do?  Permission slip? Permission, giving ourselves permission?  You mean I can give myself permission to ___________…..

Hell yea!  I can do that!
So I’m taking running coaching training
Hypnosis and communications training
Relaxation, stress reduction, anxiety reduction training
Podcasting: The Permission to Succeed Podcast (Resilience can be learned. My path to a resilient life, definition of success, permission from oneself to embrace a joyful life)
Marketing two products that I absolutely LOVE: DoTERRA Essential Oils, PruVit Ketones

Yes it is extremely sad that I had to be in my 50’s to learn that I can give myself permission to ________, even those things that I’m not supposed to do because of whatever brought me to believing that lie.


I can promise I will mess up, I will fall flat on my face, I will not make finish lines, I will offend people, I will anger people, I will inspire people.
I can promise I will strive to provide content that adds value to those who choose to give me the most precious gift they have, their time and attention.  I promise to honor that commitment you give to me.

So Onward!

Here we go!

The Permission To Succeed Podcast – What happened to Episode 15 & 16?

What happened to Episode 15 & 16?
Anchor numbers these episodes regardless of how I want them numbered so I’m getting my episode numbers lined up with them.  There is no 15 & 16.  It’s all okay.

JP Sears – Feel what you are feeling when you feel it.  No one dies from negative emotions

The Anti-Anxiety Toolkit: Rapid Techniques to Rewire the Brain by Melissa Tiers

Use this book immediately after reading the first chapter. We as individuals can have control over our anxieties and rewiring our brains to move in a different direction with our normal anxiety triggers.


How to use uncomfortable personal information:
Consider the source: Is this person mentally sound? Is this person’s life heading in a direction you can respect? Does this person want the best for you?
If no- push the information away as many times as you have to and use the techniques learned in The Anti-anxiety Toolkit.
If this person is someone you respect and they want the best for you, consider, though it may hurt and be traumatic, consider the information they give you. Then consider if the information true today. If you have known this person a long time they may never have notice, nor seen the improvements you have made in your life.  They may still be running on the stories they have in their head not noticing your new story.
Consider this, determine if the information they give is relevant today and use that information to create a roadmap to move toward the person you want to be.
