Fear is the assumption that you’re about to experience more pain than pleasure, more negative than positive, more loss than gain. Fear is an illusion that can fragment your full potential. Don’t let fear get the best of you and dictate the life you lead, it will leave you with nothing but “I could haves” and ‘I should haves”. Either you forget everything and run away from your fears or face your fears and grow to the next level. Then, be grateful for opportunity to recognize and conquer that fear that has crippled you for so long. Remember, that fear is an illusion you have set up in your own mind.
“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.”
