Your Permission Personalities

The Permission Idealist

You live your life on purpose, and you give yourself permission for all kinds of things—to speak your truth, to go against the grain, to be who you really are—as long as they’re aligned with your deeper why.

You meet your own expectations, and care more about that than about disappointing other people. It’s not hard for you to do what’s right—once you’ve decided what that is. It’s the deciding that’s tricky.

There will always be more to learn, more to research, more to think about, more to investigate—but at some point, it’s okay to choose to do the next right thing, even if you don’t know where the journey will ultimately take you.

The Permission Coach

You are willing to give yourself permission—and you’re most likely to stick with it when you have a team of supporters holding you accountable.

You’re great at meeting other people’s expectations, and you don’t want to disappoint. That’s admirable!

And the truth is, other people need you to show up as your real self so they can connect with you, and giving yourself permission sets an example for others.

Plus, you’re part of your community, and if you’re not giving yourself permission to show up there, that community isn’t as strong and healthy as it could be. You might even decide that you owe it to the people around you to give yourself permission to be who you really are.

The Permission Trailblazer

Once you decide to give yourself permission, there’s no stopping you!

You’re willing to jump in and power through. You’re not afraid to give yourself permission to go big, to be bold, and to outshine everyone’s expectations. You know it’s not selfish to be who you really are, because that’s how you serve the world best anyway.

You do care about what others think—but you balance that with knowing what you expect of yourself, and you don’t let other peoples’ opinions throw you off course.

You may need to stop and reevaluate what’s still serving you, and what no longer is. Try setting a reminder on your phone for a personal inventory once a month. Remember, it’s okay to course-correct or to make new plans.

The Permission Powerhouse

You give yourself permission all day long!

You give yourself permission because that’s just who you are. You’re the kind of person who listens to yourself and who isn’t afraid of other people’s opinions. You don’t get derailed by what people think you should do who they think you’re supposed to be.

You don’t really care what other people expect; you’re going to do what’s right for you. But… you might struggle with follow-through, because you really don’t want to be told what to do—not even by yourself.
