Confidence is key

I trust that you’ve had a fantastic new year and enjoyed your festive holiday. Wouldn’t it be nice to continue that holiday mood? We often feel once we’re in the holiday spirit that we would never want to come out of it. Play your cards right and you don’t have to 🙂

You may have seen the following before. It’s often attributed to Nelson Mandela who used it in his inaugural speech back in the mid nineties.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It’s 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 the universe.
Your playing small doesn’t interest the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking
so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of the universe
that is within us. It’s not just in some of us: it is in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
And as we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”

– Marianne Williamson

May this be your mantra entering this new year. Allow yourself to dream big and aim high. Face the challenges head on. Do what you do for the joy that it brings you.

Take some time now to read this excellent interview with Jim Rohn. He talks about the various facets of success and how it all starts with you getting to know and better yourself as a person.

Until next time, always, always, always strive to be the best that you can be.
Here’s to an awesome year
