Quote: Our Greatest Fear

Our Greatest Fear

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, which frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, 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 won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

  1. My wife sent this to me after watching the movie Akeelah and the Bee. I like to read it every once in a while to remind me of why I am an entrepreneur, and why I have been blessed with tenacity. I hope you find it equally useful.
