I am in such a beautiful space right now after watching this video. I was compelled to write because the surge of emotions were just too strong to hold in. I just couldn't sit on this one for another minute, so I decided to share. My purpose for sharing this video is to evoke action......DO SOMETHING, I DARE YOU!
"Now if you know what you're worth, go out and get what you're worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hit and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him or her or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you! YOU'RE BETTER THAN THAT!" This statement right here is the part where I stood up shouting "get up, get back up!", as if I was actually attending the fight in the video. Here I was cheering on a fighter, telling him to get back up although he was battered and bruised, which gave the appearance that he was defeated, yet something in me said "GET UP!" as if I knew he was going to win. This was a moment of absolute certainty for me.....I get it now! I AM POWERFUL!
I begin thinking about how many times I've been hit, but kept getting up and moving forward....man, what an epiphany this was! This means that I have the very thing that I need to have in order to accomplish my goals/turn my dreams into a reality, to change my life......COURAGE! No matter how many times you get hit or how hard you get hit, keep getting up! Now that's courage! Tell me, where does fear come in or how does fear come in? I think that we allow fear to take up residence because we forget our strengths and begin to focus more on our weakness. STOP IT! The weaknesses are going to be there, but what about your strengths, what about what you can do? I know it gets hard, I know you have obstacles, but you also have a choice. You're either going to choose to be a victim or the VICTOR. Dare to be powerful beyond measure! How do you do this? You do this by remembering all of the other times you got back up, especially when it seemed as if all hell was breaking loose around you. You're going to go through the battle, so why not have something to show for it? Why not live your life to the fullest? Don't let others dictate your life.....you have GREATNESS in you! I am done with pointing the finger, are you? Did you answer yes? Well, I DARE YOU TO GO OUT AND DO SOMETHING GREAT!!!
You are powerful beyond measure, what are you afraid of? Read this poem and get inspired.......
OUR DEEPEST FEAR
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 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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people
won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do.
We were 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 when we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.
