Are you being all that you can be in life or are you playing small?
Most of us play a smaller game than we can play.
Inside we all know we can do more, be more and yet too often we hold back.
This passage is one I have loved for many years and read it to remind myself….
“…..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, and 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 will not 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 is not just in some of us; it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
“A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
This passage was used in the inaugural address of Nelson Mandela.
There are times in my life when I have played full out.
And there times when I am guilty of playing small.
How about you?
Are you here to be the best version of yourself?
There are days when we all feel like curling up and being invisible.
We need to push through these times and show up!
This video sums it up!
MOTIVATION: Be All That YOU Can Be
We are all here to serve the world….
To make a difference….
To leave the world a better place because we were here….
No more playing small…
Go out there and shine and be the best version of yourself…. and I will too.
Have an amazing day!
