The Deepest Fear

our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,

our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure,

we ask ourselves,

who am i to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us ,

And as we let our own light shine,

we unconsciously give other people

permission to do the same.

    In the US, the spelling bee is quite a big thing in school.

    Btw, the author of the quote is Marianne Williamson, and there is actually one last part of the quote, which is “….do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    Alamak tersama post. Taken from the movie ” Coach Carter”. There was one part where the coach asked his player “What is your deepest fear?” Then later the student give that poem as his answer. I like it very much. Very inspiring because i’ve been so afraid of everything and this poem reminds me that we are all human. Who are they to judge us? We can be better than we are now. Why should we be afraid? Sorry ler. But I didnt take it from u. Looks like we feel the same haha!
