Motivational Monday: No Fear

Fear is what holds most people back from achieving their maximum potential.  I often think "I'm happy where I am, so what is the purpose of doing something that scares me? The purpose, my friends, is so you can be an even BETTER version of you!
The acronym fear stand for: False Evidence Appearing Real.  Fear is what happens when we assume the worst.  We conquer that fear when we try, because what idea we have in our minds about how the event will unfold is usually a whole lot worse than how it actually turns out in the end.
Do something that scares you.  Everyday.  Step just outside your comfort zone.  Maybe to you that means taking a yoga class or going to a new place to pick up lunch (Yes, sometimes it really is baby steps!) Try it. I promise you, you'll feel better, gain confidence and enjoy the moment.

Motivational Monday: Our Deepest Fear

Our Deepest Fear By 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. 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 all meant to shine, as children do. 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 are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.

What a powerful message! I've always loved this and wanted to share it with you.  We are meant to rise up to challenges and people, not shrink beneath those that we deem too challenging or better than we see ourselves.  What will you do today that will make you shine?
