Before you give up in the midst of all the challenges, here are just a few quotes to motivate you to stand strong.

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 frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are we not to be?


You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that
people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are 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 light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fears,
our presence automatically liberates others.
As quoted by Nelson Mandela in his inaugural speech, 1994.

I am indeed moved by these words said by the Late Nelson Mandela. One of my most inspiring quotes. His words are a wake-up call that we can be what we want to be. We are born with something great in the inside of us and until we rise up to face our fears, we will remain ordinary. You need courage to do something extraordinary. Courage means having the confidence to do something that frightens you. If you must make it BIG as a professional, you must step out, stand out and dare to be different. If your dreams scare you the better it is. If your dreams doesn't scare you then its not big enough.

If bravery is a quality which knows not fear, I have never seen a brave man. All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are, the more they are frightened. The courageous man is the man who forces himself in spite of his fear, to carry on.                                                             GENERAL GEORGE S. PATTON JR
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the awareness that something else is more important.

Whether we are facing a life-threatening situation or facing a common everyday situation that disturbs our inner peace, we must be ready to step out of our comfort zones and step up to our strong belief through acts of courage.

 Self confidence and courage are daily grinds of everyday life that no one is exempted from.

What you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.- GOETHE
