Stop Asking For Permission, Start Living To Inspire

We've all been guilty of it.

Wanting someone else's validation. Waiting politely for our dreams to come true. Dimming our light so that we don't outshine others.

But what if you gave yourself permission to play big?

The happiest and most fulfilled people don't stay in the wrong job. They don't suffer through stale coffee and traffic jams. They don't settle for less when they know more is out there.

The happiest people live with purpose. They dream big and play big.

They act in ways that are congruent with their preferences, abilities and values. And they embolden others to live their authentic lives.

People like Martin Luther King Jr., Warren Buffet, Gandhi and Oprah Winfrey didn't wait for the world to be ready for them. They changed the world by speaking their message, and inspired others in the process.

So even when your faith waivers, remember that your dream is about more than just you. By living fearlessly, you'll inspire all those you come across to do the same.

Surpass Your Dreams By Becoming Your Best Self

Enter Lisa Nichols.

Lisa's now a multimillionaire, who has touched almost 30 million lives with her work as founder of Motivating the Masses, Inc. and as a contributor to The Secret.

But that wasn't always the case...

Lisa grew up in Compton between two warring gangs. Her highest grade in school was a C+ due to a learning disability. Her speech teacher once told her, "I recommend that you never speak in public and that you get a desk job."

Then, 20 years ago, Lisa hit "rock bottom."

She was single-handedly raising a child with only $12 in her bank account.

When she no longer could afford to buy Pampers for her baby son, she realized that she couldn't settle for a life of scarcity.

Now she's one of the world's most-requested motivational speakers, and she's here to ask you, "Are you willing to do the things you don't want to do and say the things you don't want to say so that you can become the man or woman you've always known yourself to be?"

At Mindvalley A-Fest Mexico 2016, Lisa moved the audience to tears with her powerful talk on how to inspire others by living out your life's quest. 

She will stir your soul with this hour-long talk — and motivate you to pursue the authentic, abundant life you've always dreamed of.

you gave us permission to do the same."
