Day 1

Today's challenge is a very simple one. Simply read through this quote three times slowly. Unless you are a very slow reader, this should not take more than 5 minutes ;-)

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.

Marianne Williamson wrote the above and it has been quoted in movies such as Coach Carter and Akeelah and the Bee.

Let this quote soak into your brain today. It's time for us to be who we were created to be!
