Your Purpose & Others
Marianne Williamson in her famous “Words To Live By” said it so eloquently:
“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. And as we let our own light (talents, brilliance, & genius) shine we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.”
Think about that, living and working from your talents, strengths, and brilliance to inspire others to live from theirs!
THAT my friends is how you move closer to your purpose and to live a life you can honestly say is extraordinary!
