Inspiration vs Permission
Most people look for inspiration or motivation but I believe they are actually looking for permission.
Josh Wolfe has a saying, "Chips on shoulders put chips in pockets." If you're angry, you're not looking for permission, you just do.
If you're focused on the moment, you just do.
If you have the attitude, it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission, you just do.

This world has trained everyone to ask for permission. To have imposter syndrome.
You think that you can overcome this through motivation or inspiration. But you self-sabotage because deep down you don't think you're allowed to do it.
