“If you want to change a root thought, you have to act BEFORE you think.”
This simple challenge hit me like a freight train this morning as I was reading “Conversations with God” written by Neale Donald Walsch.
Take yourself back to grade school. The teacher asks a question to the class, and you KNOW the answer, but you don’t raise your hand.
10 years ago, you thought of a BRILLIANT invention with amazing potential to make a significant change in the world, but you talked yourself out of it and never got around to creating it . . . 5 years later, someone else “steals” your idea and becomes rich and famous.
Yesterday, you were grappling with a difficult situation with a friend or colleague, and you wrote an email with a heartfelt apology . . . and for whatever reason, you didn’t hit “send”.
We all do this!
Can you imagine how many great ideas never realize their potential to create positive change in the world?
Send the email!
ACT on your inventions no matter how wacky they might seem to be.
Our Deepest Fear
By Marianne Williamson
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’s 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’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
