Are You Playing Small?

negative self-talk is playing small.
giving into fear is playing small.
saying "i'll do it tomorrow" is playing small.
comparing yourself to another is playing small.
creating narratives of false impending dooms is playing small.
restricting your possibilities by perpetuating old cycles is playing small
. Olivia Jade


Why do you play small?

Marianne Williamson says it is our greatness that scares us more than anything else.

To become "great" means becoming a great person. That means we cannot skip the process, we cannot skip the lessons.

My definition of greatness is living on purpose with purpose, living in peace and faith despite the challenges and situations we find ourselves in

The great ones, had to go through the process, to do the work

The discipline

The faith

The consistency

The patience

The self belief

The showing up

The questioning of the beliefs

The pissing people off

The self care

Not willing to any of those things?

Then you may just be playing small

Why?

You were born for a purpose no one else can fill

You are magnificent

Catch that

Peace
