Liberate From Fear

“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.”    by Marianne Williamson

This quote pretty much sums it up. There is not much I can add. However, I would say that fear is the major self-limitor of self love. Fear is an illusion that is self-contructed on things that have either happened to us in the past or a “made up” story about what we think might happen in the future. I feel humbled and blessed to be able to work with people, athletes, or anyone, as they start their journey to liberate from fear and move towards self-excellence. I am humbled to witness their light shine.

My friends, today as you read this remind yourself that you can shine. You can choose to shine. You WERE MADE TO SHINE! If people do not like it or are not receptive to it it’s probably because they have yet to overcome their own fear. Don’t be upset or hurt, keep doing what you do and wish them well….

Keep reaching for your peak….I’ll see you at the top:)
