My dear,

Stop asking your parents for permission to go join that risky and rebellious band that they see no prospects arising from, they won’t give it to you, just join it. Stop asking your bosses for permission to implement that new strategy that you know will bring in hundreds of new customers, they won’t give it to you, just take matters into your own hands. And stop asking your friends to leave you alone for just a bit so you can focus on your passion, they try to but they won’t leave you alone, just leave and focus on your work (and explain later).

If you want to achieve greatness stop asking for permission.

Falsely yours,
A. Nonymous
