These 2 powerful quotes has hit home for me this year and has made me ponder on what these great role models of mine meant. Here is what I caught from them and you know me, I couldn’t wait to share this.
Playing small is NOT the same thing as being humble. People that play small do themselves a disservice, because rather than be the amazing person that they truly are, they lower their standards and settle for the ordinary life. They waste their talents on the inside by keeping them dormant and justifying it by telling themselves they are not good enough.
YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH AND CAPABLE OF LIVING A BETTER LIFE BUT IT WILL TAKE YOU TO BELIEVE THAT AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT- make that shift.
What is NORMAL? My normal may not be your normal, but normal can represent something we do over and over again. Normal can be thinking with the same old mind-sets and just settling for where you are.
Normal is very comfortable. It does not give allowance for change. Where there is no change, there is no growth and where there is no growth, I see stagnation.
DARE TO STEP OUT, DARE TO GO BEYOND YOUR NORM AND DARE TO BE YOUR TRUE SELF- You can do it.
My conclusion to you and I is that it is NOT worth playing small and always trying to be normal. You are amazing and I really want you to believe that with your whole mind. Nelson Mandela and Maya Angelou were not joking when these words were spoken and I am not joking now as I remind you of how AMAZING YOU REALLY ARE!
As always, I am rooting for you all the way as you and I make that shift.
