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 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 permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Nothing liberates our greatness like the desire to help, the desire to serve.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
