Release Your Light, in These Dark Economic Times
"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 you 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 other 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 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." - Marianne Williamson
THE SURPRISE WINNER OF THE RACE
The horse that won the Kentucky Derby this year was a $9,500 horse, owned by a man who had never had a horse in the race before, and who had to drive for 16 or 17 hours, with a broken foot, just to get his horse to the race. The odds against this horse winning the race were 50 to 1. But the horse named Mine that Bird won the race anyway. What lessons can we learn from the $9,500 horse that beat the multi-million-dollar favorites?

Creating a Winning Relationship with Failure
Read historically accurate biographies of all of the most successful men and women throughout history, and you will discover that their lives were not just a series of spectacular successes, but also a series of devastating defeats and failures. If you want to be a successful business entrepreneur, or if you want to be really successful at anything in life, you must be willing to risk failure. And sometimes, you will fail. The question is not whether or not you will fail. The important question is: How will you respond to failure when it does occur. Will you recover? Will you deal with yourself gently and forgivingly? Will you get up, dust yourself off, and go again? There is some good coaching for you on how to deal with failure in the biographies of the most successful people throughout history.
