Time to be yourself

I heard a speaker last week talking about shining as the person that you are.   It made me wonder how many of us actually do that?    She also spoke about sharing your story, that others can learn from you.
It made me think of a Goethe quote that is probably my favourite.
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. 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 favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now”.
We all have a story and life experiences that are unique to us.   What have you learnt that is useful to others?     Probably more than you realise; time to flaunt it!
