Hidden inside of her was the kind of power that, if harnessed, could light up the whole world. She decided it was time to throw the switch. – Queenisms™
What exactly would happen if we got up every morning and said to ourselves, “I’m going to throw the switch and shine today,” and we didn’t give a fig of a thought to who might be threatened if we dared to be awesome?
Believe it or not, many of us moderate our energy, our light, so that others feel safe, shiny or brilliant themselves. But truthfully, we’re not doing others a favor by dulling our light. Think about some of the great teachers in history, some of the great leaders or thinkers or inventors. Now think what it would have been like if they’d gotten up in the morning and thought, “Hmmm, maybe I should dial it back a bit and give other people a chance to shine today.” That’s not how it works.
Inspiring people inspire other people to be their own most brilliant selves.
Every time you dare to be your best self, you impact someone else. Just like the commercial where one kind deed inspires a series of kind acts that pass from one person to another, so the courageous act of letting your light shine creates a ripple of shiny lights. We’d like to ask you to take a pledge today. Pledge to let yourself be shiny this week, with no apologies. Can you take that pledge?
