Fear of your own power?





“Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond
measure

Most of us likely know people who undervalue themselves, who could have done more with their lives but they were afraid to try. We also know of those who believe that they have superhuman powers to alter the way people conduct their lives. The latter are not afraid to act powerfully. They are not timid and they often succeed because no one wants to stand up to them.

This quote was not intended to apply to everyone. It was intended to speak
to those who underestimate their abilities, who are afraid to be successful
because they are not sure what they would do differently.

Those among us who manage to liberate themselves from fear provide role models for others who would dearly love to try. Oftentimes, all they need is to know that someone else has done it, especially if that someone is prepared to act as support for their own attempt to free themselves from fear, to live as they can be.

The ones who have liberated ourselves from fear should adopt a responsibility
for helping others to do the same. Too many among us lurk in the shadows in fear that we will be noticed, that a light will be shone upon us and we will be foundwanting. We don't need more lurkers, we need them to become more effective people.


We can help them. That can be our way of making the world a better place

  7. I gotta admit, I'm just starting to get some real work, and I'm gonna have more money than I've ever had before, and the idea does scare me.

    That's one hell of a post. I'm subscribing for sure.

  8. I agree, living with regret (having not tried) is a lot worse than living with trying and failing.

  11. we only help those who needed/wanted help.
    there's really no use to helping them if they're not helping themselves.
