brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous.

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.

This kids gonna be the best kid in the world. 
This kids gonna be somebody better than anybody I ever knew. 

But somewhere along the line you changed, you stopped being you. 
You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you youre no good, 

and when things got hard, 
you started looking for something to blame, 

like a big shadow. 

Let me tell you something you already know, 
the world aint all sunshine and rainbows,

its a very mean and nasty place and I dont care how tough you are, 
it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. 

You, me, or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life; but it aint about how hard you hit, its about how hard you 
can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward

Thats how winning is done. 

Cause if youre willing to go through all the battling
you gotta go through to get to where you wanna get, 

whos got the right to stop you?

I mean maybe some of you guys got something you never finished, 

something you really want to do, 
something you never said to somebody, 


And youre told no even after you pay your dues, 
whos got the right to tell you that, who? 


Its your right to listen to your gut, 
it aint nobodys right to say no, 
after you earn the right to be where you want to be and do what you want to do. 

Now if you know what youre worth, then go out and get what youre worth. 
But youve gotta be willing to take the hits. 
And not pointing fingers saying you aint where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. 
Cowards do that and that aint you--

Youre better than that 

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
