Our deepest fear is not the fear that we are inadequate (inaccurate)
Our deepest fear is the fear that we are powerful beyond our masses
It is our light not our darkness that 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 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 is not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates us.
~ Marianne Williamson~ ~Nelson Mandela~
It has come to a realization that most of us have the stunning fear of lack, lust, or limitation. We base our day to day living on sheer scarcity believing that we need a whole lot to be successful. Some even go to the extent of developing a theory around their success. Oh! I have to live in abundance before I can become whom I am expected to be. With the sheer fear of inadequacy, tons of dreams have been left unutilized. Many inventions have been deposited into an eternal bank where there is no return. That’s the graveyard. With the fear of not having enough, humanity has squandered her precious gifts. It goes without saying that the richest bank is the cemetery. Why? because there, you see talents untouched, dreams unkempt, innovations unmade, inventions kept in the dark. Solutions to Climate Change undeveloped. Unmatched intelligence and what have you. Man is so scared of limitations that every morning, his thoughts are based on prosperity and abundance and the real dream are set aside.
I have the pleasure to tell you this: That all these fears of yours arent your deepest fear. They are a misinterpretation of your inadequacies, probably, because you have been so attached to them.
Cut the crap, Jnr what then is my biggest fear?
Our deepest fear is the fear that we are powerful beyond our masses, imagination (measure).
You think you can only become the best football player in your local community? Well, I stand to tell you that it’s the least you can think of. You are only scared of the big dream ahead. Man has placed fear over his dreams. Let me give you an insight to the words of a philosopher. Each and everyone of us is scared of how our innovation would be accepted by the world. Questions of uncertainty fills our mind. Come to think of it, if great men that had lived were scared of how their potential would be embraced by the world, trust me, they would only be able to fulfill their purpose in life in the four corners of their room. Sarcastic, isn’t it? The great philosopher said ” I am not who I think I am. I am not who you think I am. I am who I think you think I am.” So when you have the fear of chasing your aim because you believe it wouldn’t be accepted. Because you feel the world would mock. That’s what you think the world thinks about you and you know what? That’s actually what you are!. You think the world thinks you are dumb? Oh! Well, you are dumb! You think the world thinks you are powerful beyond your limitations, ladies and gentlemen, you are way more powerful.
To change the flow, let it out! Push it out! Throw it out! Have a positive thought about the world because it will reflect who you are.
Don’t think the future is just there. Its there for you to make an impact.
Do not accept the future you think people think you have. Say boldy, I do not accept it. An error does not become a mistake until you refuse to correct it. Yes, you can redirect this. You have the capability to direct this to your benefit. I believe the efforts of your generation will yield an appreciation by future generations. That your imagination can and would become a realization. Trust me celebration and elation awaits your conceptualization. If all these are true, why wait?
