be brilliant

You know the quote

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

It continues:

“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? …

“… And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

I used to think that staying in the background allowed others to have a chance. But now, I will shine. I will be brilliant.

You can too.

(from Marianne Williamson, though often attributed to Nelson Mandela)
