Permission to Succeed: The Only Person Who Needs to Give It Is YOU!

In his latest book, Permission to Succeed: The Only Person Who Needs to Give It Is YOU!,  author and motivational speaker Mark Wiggins candidly challenges readers to win the battle he calls “YOU vs. YOU.” Only in so doing, he affirms, can they free their unrealized potential to enjoy success and live the lives of their dreams.

Wiggins also invites readers to stop looking outside of themselves for permission to do what they think they should do and instead to look internally for the permission they need to succeed. He comments, “The fact is, we all have what it takes to achieve success. Remember the old adage? ‘If you allow others to define your success, you give them the right to define your failures.’ It couldn’t be more true.”

Chapter titles in Permission to Succeed range from “Ask the Big Questions” to “Forgive Yourself for Wasted Time” to “Participate in Your Destiny” to “Turn Struggles into Growth.” A motivational section at the end of each chapter titled “Get Off the Bench” invites readers to put the tools and ideas just presented to immediate use.

The book concludes with a chapter titled “Motivational Moments” that contains a variety of illuminating and inspiring quotes from the likes of Aristotle, Confucius, Maya Angelou, Booker T. Washington, and Dale Carnegie, all carefully chosen to inspire readers to conquer fear,  create a plan, and awaken from within the desire and determination to succeed.
