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
“When one is confronted with seemingly insurmountable odds,
he must and will consolidate all of his internal energies
in order to effectively combat his adversities.
The consolidation of man’s internal energies in times of
adverse circumstances is called the WILL.
The WILL is not a hereditary asset, but an acquired asset.
Since man’s WILL is being continually tried,
there must be a yardstick whereby the effectiveness of his WILL
when confronted by adversities in his environment, may be measured.
Man is shaped and shapes his environment.
When man reaches that coveted stage of abilities
where he shapes his environment rather than becomes victimized by it,
his WILL is indefatigable or dominant.
This is what men strive for – TO HAVE THE WILL TO HAVE WILL!!” ~ Kenneth L. Owens, Sr.
