“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
I am often reminded of this quote and I love it. Why? Because there are a lot of times that we hold ourselves back from achieving or succeeding in life. Maybe it's because we care about what other people might say or think of us. Maybe it's because we're afraid that we won't know how to handle or maintain the next level. Maybe it's because we'll have to get uncomfortable and therefore risk losing those "cool points."
Whatever it is, I am learning that playing all out is the best strategy. Taking massive action each and every day is better than not taking enough. God gave us energy, ideas, effort, and abilities that never seem to end...or at least they regenerate with a little rest. If we keep receiving it, why not use it?
I recall an interview with Michael Jackson where he said that he received song ideas from God all the time. He feared that if he didn't record or capture them in some form, God would give them to Prince instead. (Laughing)
Right now, you are destined for greatness. The question is will you walk into your greatness or allow someone else to take it instead?
Go all out today and everyday. Move with purpose. Don't play small...instead, let your light shine for all to see.
Let's go get what we came for, Champions!
