“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” Marianne Williamson
Everyone is born for greatness. In today’s world it has never been more possible to follow our passions, even when we lack the experience. However, our need for self-preservation will often outweigh our aspirations as we begin to question those desires. Who am I to be great? Who am I to succeed beyond measure? But the question should be, who am I not to be those things?
We live in a world of abundance, full of enough opportunity for everyone to prosper. All of the tools we need are readily available to us; we just have to have enough faith in ourselves to strive for it and enough intent to dig deep to find what we want and maintain our focus on it.
The basic idea is to believe that you have the capacity as an individual to make your own free choices, or, as Tom Mullaly puts it, you have to have “more agency than you ever did”. You don’t need approval from anyone but yourself to move towards your dreams. By embracing the idea of choosing yourself, you effectively free yourself. Whether it’s from a job you don’t like, a bad relationship or a bad habit, the victory is won when you make that decision, long before any event has unfolded.
The opportunity to thrive doesn’t live within just some of us; it lies within all of us. Have you ever noticed that when you’re in the presence of positive, happy and successful people that you not only feel inspired, but you also feel liberated. By choosing to shine, we unconsciously give those people around us permission to do the same.
