Do not be afraid to live an incredible life and be your best self.
Do you remember winning a running race when you were young, or being great at maths in school, or being liked by your boss only to find that those around you began disliking you because of your achievements and success?
Often we can learn not to be great and shine brightly because it may mean being the centre of attention, losing friends or being disliked by work colleagues. So, we become average to make everyone around us feel better.
Societies scheme to keep us dull.
I can remember this happening to me at a very young age. I was in primary school and I was incredibly good at running races. I would win every race and my shirt was covered in blue ribbons from winning each race at the school carnival.
I can recall parents coming up to me and commenting on how may ribbons I had won, but their comments were not congratulatory comments, there was bitterness in their words. One lady asked me if there were any ribbons for anyone else. By the end of the day I remember letting others win because I did not want the negative attention attached to being the fastest runner.
This belief that I needed to dull down my greatness carried into all areas of my life. I can recall sitting in lectures reading my results from university papers, I would always hide my results from friends because I did not want them to know how well I did. Often, I would leave the class straight after receiving my results so that no one would ask how I went.
What areas of your life do you dull down to make others feel more secure?
Why are you hiding your light?
There can be so many reasons why you may choose to hide your light, it may be because you have low confidence and the thought of being centre of attention frightens you. You may not like being questioned by people around you as to why you did better than them? Maybe others judging comments brings forth your own judgements of yourself so you may think it is better not to shine yourself too brightly. Whatever your reason is, it is so important to look within and find your truth!
When you find your truth as to why you are not shining brightly, you will be able to assess it and work on the areas of your life that keep you caged. It can be scary to show yourself and others around you how magnificent you can truly be but read below to discover how to feel more confident and be ready to shine!
Surround yourself with the people who lift you higher.
There are many people in life that want to keep your greatness hidden because it is safer for them. First, realise that the people who put you down and do not encourage you are going through their own battles within. It is hard for certain people to accept that others are breaking free from the fold and going out to live a brilliant life. It reminds them of their own insecurities and fears. When you begin to realise this fact, it will allow you to smile and accept those types of people who want to keep you caged for who they are, and you will still go ahead and shine anyway!
It is incredibly important to surround yourself with positive people who choose to encourage and uplift you. This is especially true if you are someone who has self sabotaging thoughts or self-doubt, because your true friends will be ready and waiting to pump you back up and remind you of your greatness.
By being dim you will keep others dim around you.
Who are you not to be great! You were born to be great, magnificent, spectacular and crazy in love with life. You have a special quality that only you can give to others. Whatever your qualities are, realise that others are waiting to learn from you, watch you, learn from you and be inspired by you.
I realised when I first started to launch my website that I had a lot of self-doubt and fear around leading women. I then reminded myself of all the qualities, experiences, and knowledge that I could use to change women’s lives around me. I let myself see that it has nothing to do with me and it has everything to do with the people who I would help, who would look to me for guidance, light, inspiration, encouragement and love.
Find Your Light!
Start by writing 3 things that you value about yourself each day and do this for 40 days so that it will become a habit. You want to constantly look within and identify your special qualities. At first this may be challenging, however, as you write more and more you will be able to see just how special you really are. This will allow you to feel more confident and motivated to come out of your shell.
So start by going within and connecting with what qualities you can bring to others lives, because you may have been dim for too long, it is now time to shine your beacon of truth, love and light. Shine your truth out into the world, because people are waiting for someone just like you!
I will leave you with Marianne Williamson’s quote.
“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, fabulous?’ 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 other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. 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 everyone. And as 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.”
