You Have the Permission to Live

You have the permission to live. Stop seeking validation.

Stop seeking validation.

– Hey Tomas, what do you think of this website idea? – Me: I love it. – Thanks, Tomas.

Most people won’t take action until they feel they’ve got a permission. Who the hell came up with this concept? Why was I taught like that?

Stop looking for excuses not to start and start coming up with solutions. Life is so unbelievably amazing. You can do whatever you imagine. There is no one stopping you.

Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you, and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. – Steve Jobs

Everything was made up. When you realize it you feel free and empowered to do whatever you like.

For a long time, my understanding of life was to finish school, get university diploma, get a job appreciated by society, create a family, buy a house and live happily. What the heck is that? Who came up with this model of life?

Fortunately, my mind has changed and this post is meant to inspire you. Ask yourself what is stopping you from doing the things you’re dreaming about? Usually, it’s just your mind. Set it free.

Want to start a blog? Start on Medium and in less than 5 minutes you’ll be writing your first post. Want to start drawing? Picking up a pencil and paper doesn’t cost that much. Want to start your own business? Nobody is stopping you but your mind.

You have the permission to live.
