Don’t be small

Don’t be small

As I was doing my normal Monday “spool-up”, I was overwhelmed.

I literally had a moment of panic when I looked at this daunting list of large projects I’m tackling simultaneously.

 

How can I possibly get all of this done?

 

Then I remembered that “We are all meant to shine”
My panic quickly subsided when I realized how fortunate I am to be practicing my version of shining in spite of the FEAR I sometimes feel that I might not succeed.
Worse yet . . . a fear of actually succeeding.
Everyone’s definition of “Shining” is different.

Today, I hereby invite YOU to pause for as long as you need to liberate yourself from any FEARS.

When you get this, you’ll become a magnet attracting the right people into your life, as your liberation spawns other people’s liberation.

Don’t play small anymore . . . 

Our Deepest FearBy Marianne Williamson

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’s 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’re liberated from our own fear, 
Our presence automatically liberates others.

This seems to be an especially busy summer for so many folks I'm in contact with.  I know that I seem to be overwhelmed with a lot of stuff coming at me from left field!  I am hopeful it soon passes.  The good news is that I'm accomplishing a lot.

You can be humble without being small or you can be small and not believe yourself, it’s all what you do with it.

That's an interesting motivational quote from the presidential candidate.  I think we do short sell ourselves too often.  Thanks!
