"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. By playing small you do not serve the world, there is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. It is just not in some of us; it is in everyone. As we allow our own light to shine we unconsciously give other people the permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
