Who am I to be brilliant?

Dr Erin Bowe psychologist

November 3, 2023

A reflection this week. It’s nothing new and shiny but I read it in a book about money mindset of all things. It’s from a poem by Marianne Williamson. Nelson Mandela quoted it in his 1994 spech. I’ve trimmed it a bit here:

“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?’… 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… 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.”

If you need the support to break through some of these fears about being seen, this is where you’ll find me. Whether it’s a group that starts this year or early next, I’ll trust the timing. I’m excited to get into this work and I feel certain it’s worth doing, so there’s no rush. 

Here’s some info about my visibility coaching group. If you need a nod, it’s here.
