License to shine

Family watched Coach Carter tonight.  First thing worth saying, is this is a good movie. It is well acted, and has a strong social message reinforcing accountability, and individual contribution within our larger societal construct. Bravo... Bring your A game and work together to make a difference in every life you come into contact with.. Be who you are, powerful and special, lighting the way for others to follow you, carry you, and beyond.
“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.” ---  Marianne Williamson.
