  73. 73. Something to think about: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 and fabulous?Actually who are you not to be?You are a child of God.Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feelinsecure around you.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 light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to dothe same.As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inaugural speech
