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. –Marianne Williamson
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
Motivation is great. Literally billions of dollars are spent each year by people trying to build their motivation. Tony Robbins, Jeff Keller and others have made fabulous careers helping people maximize their motivation. In truth, you could be helped to focus your motivation for success. All of that is good and useful.
Your environment may be, to a greater extent, as important as your motivation.
By environment, I’m not talking where you live. It is more about how you choose to live.
