There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

…Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.
– Charles Swindoll

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 frightens us most…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 all of us. 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.
