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

Giving It Your Best

If you're going to take the trouble to do something, then do your best. You will never go wrong by aiming for the higher ground. Fads and trends may come and go, but excellence never goes out of style.
When those around you are agonizing over how to do it cheaper, or with minimum commitment, or more expediently, put your focus on how to do it right. When those around you are searching for gimmicks, direct your attention toward real, lasting substance.

Quality will make you a winner. Commitment and excellence will bring you to the front. Pursue the higher ground. It won't be easy, and because of that few will even bother. But it will be best.

Relish the difficult challenges. They are the ones which will bring the most spectacular results. Take on the tough projects. They carry the biggest opportunity for excellence. Aim high, persist, and you'll most certainly get there.

Even on the most difficult days there is hope. The worst that could possibly happen cannot even come close to the good that already is. The whole world could crumble around you and still there would be the very real presence of joy and fulfillment in your life.
The best things you have, you cannot ever lose. The most important things can never be taken from you no matter what tragedy may befall you.

And therein lies the strength to attempt anything. You truly cannot fail, so you might as well succeed in the most spectacular fashion. Yes, you will stumble and there will be pain, but it can never equal the joy of which you're capable. Even though no one may catch you when you fall, the minute you hit bottom there will be endless ways to start climbing again.

Act strong because you are strong. Go confidently forward knowing that even the very worst days are still full of wonder and exciting possibility. You have a great life to be lived. Turn on your courage and make it happen.
