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?
Your playing small doesn't 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. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone.
And when 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.
This has, and will always be, one of my favorite quotes ever. Thank you for sharing it.
You're welcome! I ad heard it before but it truly resonates with me now.
To me, it's a reminder to be unafraid.
And not in a Yoda kind of way; it's more of an optimistic, encouraging kind of way.
