One of the articles that really inspired me about self belief, is this article called Powerful Beyond Measure. Sometimes I wonder…… When a person is faced with an opportunity to excel, and then backs off or retreats away before his full potential can be revealed (a.k.a Self Sabotage), is it because of the fear of failure (therefore attracting failure) or a fear of success (cannot see oneself as successful)?

To me, I interpret it as the fear of success, or that person’s inability to hold great fortune, great wealth or great success. There was a time that I was caught up in this pattern but when I started to give myself permission to become a millionaire, I realised that this fear of success disappears, replaced by a passion to make things happen.

Let me know what you think about Self Sabotage.

POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE

“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.
We ask ourselves, who am I?
To be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t save the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking,
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us;
It is in every one of us.
And as we let our 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.”
