Don't wait to be chosen - choose yourself
Growing up I was terrible at sports, I was tiny and never really interested in anything competitive (even then I was all about the collaboration vibe!), so inevitably when it came to being picked for teams in sports like Netball and Hockey, I was always last to be chosen.
Now my mantra is 'choose yourself', we have more opportunities than we have ever had available to us as women - it's time to stop dimming to fit in and stand out and shine!
“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...? 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.”
