Monday Motivator-"Destine For Greatness"


Nelson Mandela who went from being a prisoner to president, eloquently illustrates the significance of embracing and accepting our GREATNESS. We need to comprehend this on a much deeper level in order to progress from survival to success to GREATNESS.
Please read and contemplate the following words which may already be at least somewhat familiar to you:



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?" Who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking So that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us: it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, We unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.



--Nelson Mandela's 1994 Inaugural Speech (fragment)
