As you prepare physically and mentally for tonight know that I am with you on a spiritual level. A level very few will experience and even fewer will understand. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.
Of course there will be critics. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Critics are often the ones who have done NOTHING but criticize the efforts of others. Because they are afraid. Afraid of change. Afraid to move out of their comfort zone.
A little less than a year ago I challenged you.
I challenged you to find success. To find happiness. To show EVERYONE the Rebecca that I see.
Look at what you have accomplished!!!
Do Not EVER walk into a room. SWAGGER instead. With the confidence of knowing that NOTHING can stand in your way. With the confidence of knowing that no matter where you are you are NEVER again alone.
Your deepest fear is should not be that you are inadequate. Your deepest fear is that you are powerful beyond measure. It is your light, not your darkness that most frightens me. You may ask yourself, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? I may not believe in A god but if I did- 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 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.
Go tonight- let everyone see the LIGHT burning in your heart. The passion that drives you to succeed. And in some way- the love we all have for you.
Kick ass my friend. KICK ASS
