I Am Enough

"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, 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.
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." ~ Marianne Williamson

Overcoming Haters

Very true words by Maya Angelou:

A hater is someone who is jealous and envious and spends all their time,
trying to make you look small so they can look tall. They are very negative
people to say the least. Nothing is ever good enough!

When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters...That's why you have to be
careful with whom you share your blessings and your dreams, because some
folk can't handle seeing you blessed...It's dangerous to be like somebody
else...If God wanted you to be like somebody else, He would have given you
what He gave them! Right?

You never know what people have gone through to get what they have...problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they don't know my story... If the grass looks greener on the other side
of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!

We've all got some haters among us!

People envy you because you can have a relationship with God.

Light up a room when you walk in.

Start your own business.

Tell a man / woman to hit the curb (if he / she isn't about the right thing)

Raise your children without both parents being in the home.

Haters can't stand to see you happy; Haters will never want to see you
succeed; Haters never want you to get the victory, most of our haters are
people who are supposed to be on our side?

How do you handle your undercover haters? You can handle these haters by:
1. Knowing who you are & who your
true friends are *(VERY IMPORTANT!!)

2. Having a purpose to your life? Purpose does not mean having a job. You can have a job and still be
unfulfilled. A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to
be. Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you.

3. By remembering what you have is by divine prerogative and not human
manipulation. Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live...when
it's your time to leave this earth, you 'want' to be able to say, 'I've
lived my life and fulfilled 'my' dreams,... Now I'm ready to go HOME! When
God gives you favor, you can tell your haters, 'Don't look at me...Look at
Who is in charge of me...'
