Inspirational Quote: Shine Your Light

From the movie Coach Carter

Coach Ken Carter: What is your deepest fear?

Timo Cruz: 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. 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. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights 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 quote touched me profoundly, especially in the context of the movie. I hope that it touches you too.

I believe that it is true, people down play their ability, their talent, "their light" so that others don't feel intimidated, but our light is like a infectious smile, it can be caught and passed on.

My thought for the day: Let your light shine and create a path for others to do so too...

Shine your light down on me
Lift me up so I can see
Shine your light when you're gone
