Playing Small Does Not Serve the World

20130501-223305.jpg

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…?” Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. And, as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberates from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
