Why Are You Still Afraid of Being Your Badass Self?

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 and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?…

 Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened

about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you….






   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 are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
