“Our deepest fear is not that we are... - Deepstash
 Marianne Williamson

“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 briliant gorgeous, handsome, talented and 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…”

Remembering Faces

Effortless Seems Authentic

There is an assumption among many that if someone is an achiever at a young age, the unique talent must be an innate ability, and not slogging. The extraordinary milestones that are met before the usual timeframes feel disruptive, and unsettles the status quo.

The truth is many young achievers have spent years working hard, and overcoming substantial challenges to reach the celebrated milestones.
