I wanted to remind you of a powerful quote that I love by Marianne Williamson. It was mentioned in the amazing teleseries, The Feminine Edge hosted by my girlfriend Ali Brown, entrepreneur mentor for women. The common thread weaving through each call I heard this week was that it is OUR TIME. Ladies, it is our time to stop playing small, stop apologizing for our greatness and being martyrs. It is time to step into your power and greatness. I encourage you to read this quote when you are not distracted by the TV, the phone or the kids. Read it line by line and really think about it. This quote changed my life about 10 yrs ago:
“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, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not 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 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
This is a reminder to WALK TALL in your power. Like the quote states, “you playing small does not serve the world” so start playing BIG today. Dig deep, dust off those passions and dreams and start shining like you are meant to shine.
I love you, Tiff

Thank you for this, I am so guilty of feeling embarrassed or cautious of my success for fear of making others feel small, or that I’m ‘showing off’. But I can walk tall with dignity and hopefully inspire others to do the same. Much love xx
