What Happens If, As Those Who Believe In And Love Me Most Contend, I Truly Am Far More Capable And Competent Than My Current Circumstances Suggest?

“[O]ur deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. [I]t is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves: ‘Who are we to be brilliant . . . talented, fabulous,’ when the question we should be asking is: who are we not to be [those things – and more]? We are children of God. Our playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about our shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around us. 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 all of us. 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 of success, our presence automatically liberates others.”
