When you want to achieve great things in life, or mediocre one’s, it doesn’t matter.
Most people think they need permission to do things, but that’s not true.
You need permission to work in a company, to fuck a girl, to do something that requires some sort of external output/input.
But when you want to do things on your own by your own standards – you need no permission.
You can’t hire yourself and pay yourself money.
Money always comes from the outside and if you have a dream, people need to permit you to earn money. That’s called being accepted.
If people don’t accept you, you do it anyway – because you need no permission to do ‘business’ on your own.
Making money is hard. Being accepted is hard, getting permission is rare. Doing requires no permission.
