At this stage in life, we are old enough to not be afraid to ask for permission to do most things in this life. In fact, sometimes we just do it without any fear of consequence. The scary thing is that it is not the fear of asking others but simply the fear of asking ourselves and giving ourselves permission to make decisions, albeit life changing decisions, that can hold us back from living the life of happiness and success we have been looking for. With that being said, I have composed a letter that you can copy for yourself when the time comes, print it out and read it whenever you need to remind yourself that you have permission to be great in this lifetime!

I am applying to finally live the life I have been dreaming of for so long. I am writing to ask for your permission to support of all my future endeavors. I plan to specialize in walking through this life with a purpose. I would also like to further my understanding of how I can truly be great and learn how to succeed, even if I fail.
I believe that I have learned a great deal thus far which has helped me to develop a better sense of self. Knowing this, I am at a crossroads in my life, career, and family and want to have your support going forward. I realize that I have held myself back for fear of the future but currently am reliving the past. This letter will assist me in giving me strength and peace of mind to perform at a level that I have only seen other successful people operate at. The difference is that now I BELIEVE I can do it!
When I am accepted into the program through my own admission, I will continue to think of your teachings and how it brought me to where I am today. I rely on and value your expertise to remind me of what I am truly capable of, how amazing I am and that the only person to stop me, is me. The feet of confidence walk with the cadence of the finest symphony and the rhythm of a well-oiled machine. In other words, I will put my best self forward with my head held high.
I promise I will live up to the standards I have now set forth and not let you down. The only way being not to try or give myself a fighting chance. Thank you again for your time and I respect who you are and what you have accomplished. Time will tell what the future holds but with this letter I hold, I know my future is limitless and bright!
Now go forth, blaze your own path and keep me posted along the way. I want to know how you have reached your own personal goals so we can inspire others to walk in the path of greatness!
