Stop shrinking back. Start shining bright.

This is one of my all time favorite quotes. Often, we tend to dim our light so it won’t make those around us feel uncomfortable or we’re fearful of what they may think of us. But today, I encourage you to let your light shine bright. This will take courage and vulnerability, and perhaps daily practice. But when we begin to align ourselves authentically, we’ll inadvertently encourage others to do the same. So let’s stop shrinking back and start shining bright!

Everyone dies, but not everyone lives.

Everyone’s born with a unique gift – some call it a natural born ability, God given talent, or an acquired skill. Unfortunately, many of us don’t utilize our gift to the fullest capacity. Perhaps life, responsibilities, or fear have led us away.

May this video inspire us to live to our fullest potential, and use our gifts for the greater good. It won’t be easy but the pain of regret will be far greater than the pain of discipline. Exercise your gift now. Don’t let the dream die within you.

Success is the quiet courage to try again, another day.

In this game of life, I guarantee we’ll win some and we’ll painfully lose some. And when the latter happens, we’ll undoubtedly question our abilities and second-guess our destiny. The only thing that will count is going from one failure to another without losing our hope or enthusiasm. I know this won’t be easy to practice but in order to succeed in life we must keep going despite our temporary times of defeat and despair. Everyday, it’ll take a huge amount of courage to keep going in the midst of unsuccessful attempts and a surmountable tenacity to fight against all odds. But we must.

Success isn’t always measured in status, money, or things – sometimes it’s measured in the quiet courage to try again another day.
