Our Deepest Fear [Quote]
Once in a while, you come across a quote that makes you step back and reflect. I came across this quote from Bestselling author Marianne Williamson, which was used in the movie “Coach Carter” starring Samuel L Jackson. The quote moved me because it touched on the inner struggles and fears we have as individuals. We have them as children and as adults.
I will keep this short, but I will say that what I learned is that its more important to focus on what to do instead of trying to get rid of those fears.
Here is a different version if you prefer a plain background:
Here is the text for the quote:
“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 is 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 are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
from “A Return to Love”, by Marianne Williamson.
