Denying Your Greatness

When you deny your greatness….You are denying yourself of who you are, what you can be, and of who you are becoming.

By denying who you can become, denies you of your desires,  and by denying your desires, you are denying your potential, and by denying your potential,  you are denying your expression of your talents and gifts, and thus, keeping you from dreaming big or doing big.

Set yourself free, give yourself permission to be great. You are here to live your life, fully, richly and passionately.

Do not be afraid to be different, do not be afraid to stand out, be the unique being you really are.

The world gains little from your self-imposed smallness. It gains much when you allow your greatness to shine.

Think Big. Do great things. Move beyond your comfort zone. You can handle it. Celebrate your uniqueness. Don’t pretend to be like everyone else. We know you are not.

    Soaking in these words today. I’ve been writing and speaking a lot lately about taking a stand for ourselves and our future. The denial you speak about is the essence of the resistance so many people have to taking a stand of any kind – big or small.
