If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission. (Anonymous)

In some organizations you have to ask permission from the “higher powers” if you want to experiment with something new or untried. Often the authorities are reluctant to allow their employees to pursue a new idea. That’s why so many entrepreneurs have to launch out on their own. We should be grateful for those who’ve had the courage to do so.

Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous (Joshua 10:25).
