Nelson Mandela Quote – Our Deepest Fear

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 Frightens us Most. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?” Actually who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when we let our own light 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.

-Nelson Mandela
