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 frightens us most.
We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’
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 people won’t feel insecure around you.
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 all of us.
And when 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.”
In my work as a Performance Coach and Psychologist within the last 10 years,
I have come to terms with the reality that;EXTRAordinary people are ordinary people
who go the EXTRA mile and do the EXTRA over and above what ordinary people do;
Hence they achieve EXTRA-ordinary results
TO BECOME EXTRAORDINARY:
Be EXTRA creative.
You need this for problem-solving, conflict resolution, crisis and change management.
EXTRAordinary people are EXTRA focused on their Goals and Vision.
EXTRAordinary people know that to achieve their Goals; they need to be
EXTRA clear about their Goals and how they will achieve them.
EXTRAordinary people spend EXTRA time to sit down to visualize themselves
having achieved their Goals and they think about all the things that may stop them
and they come up with various ways to overcome these barriers.
This is to the extent that their visualization exercise is like them watching a live movie
about what played out and how they achieved their Goal; They See and Feel it already achieved
EXTRAordinary people have EXTRA Boldness and Courage
Over time they have developed the Habit of Boldness and Courage.
They have fought fear to a stand still
EXTRAordinary people are fearless
To be continued…
