What are we all so afraid of?
South African President Nelson Mandela, in his inaugural speech many years ago, reminded us that our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure. It is not our darkness, but our light that frightens us. That’s why we so easily surrender our power to others and suffer the cruelty of living a life less than we were meant to live.
But it’s time to stop letting fear control us…
Time to stop hiding our light.
Time to stop letting others pull us down.
To stop ignoring our hearts, putting off our callings, and settling for the passenger seat when we long to drive.
To stop being so concerned about what others think that we compromise our dreams and lose touch with ourselves.
To stop pretending everything is OK.
It’s time to stop it, right now.
The decision to do something big is the decision to standup for your life, to take back your power and live your highest vision.
Here are three questions to ask yourself today:
(1) What do I feel called to do?
(2) How have I let fear stop me?
(3) What’s one thing I can do right now to move forward?
