Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous ? Actually, who are you not to be ? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
(Vin Diesel – FB 24 April 2009)
I read the above quotation from Vin Diesel’s status in Facebook. Quite surprise with what he wrote and made me think, am I brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous ? Am I never wanted to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous ?
I think everybody knows the answer, we all brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous; no one can say that we are not that brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous. Even when we are comparing ourselves with the King, the Queen, the model, the actor, the answer still the same.
Who are they ? compare to us ? They have the popularity. We ? We have the popularity also ?
Brilliant ? We also brilliant. Talented ? We also talented. Fabulous ? We also fabulous.
We are special, every human being are special because as Vin Diesel wrote in his status, that as we let our own light shine then unconsciously we let other do the same.
Sometimes we didn’t realize of whom we are and we tend to copied someone else without even facing the mirror and find the beauty of ourselves.
I can’t write more than that especially since the quotation itself really moves me.
