“Who are you to play small?”

Motivational Thought For The Week (by Kerry Hein) “Who are you to play small?” – Unknown “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, talented or 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 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. As we let our own light shine, we inconspicuously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson Each and every one of us are a miracle. Each and every one of us must share the burden of reaching out and trying to help our fellow man. Through helping others, we help ourselves. Once again, if you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Let your light shine brightly. Burn like a fire with your enthusiasm and people will come from miles to watch you burn!
