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? There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
Do not give up what you want most for what you want at the moment. --- Stop looking back to the past; you cannot change it now. Instead, turn around and observe what is ahead of you, for this is where your attention will do the most good.
