Our Greatest Fear Poem - Made famous by Nelson Mandela

A poem  made famous by Nelson Mandela


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?

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 were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.

It is not just in some of us, it is 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.

This poem is from the book the Course of Miracles written by Marianne Williamson.

How to Improve your own and others Workplace Attitudes


1        It makes people happier.  Worldwide research has shown that when you are optimistic about life you are happier. You appreciate life through nature, your friends, associates, home and are happy to give back.

2        People live longer. As ‘feel good’ endorphins flow through your body, you are ridding your body of stress which is one of life’s killer diseases, therefore you are living to a riper old age.

3    People enjoy working with you more. Human nature is that we want to feel good, unfortunately many people don’t know how. The positive people with positive energy  are attract other likeminded people to think and act the same way.


4    You have more fun. Laughing is one of life’s free gifts that puts a smile on your face and jelly in your belly. As you go looking for fun it finds its way to you as people share jokes and you look on the bright side of life.

5    You don’t grumble when things go wrong instead try to fix it. Positive thinking has you   overcoming works hurdles quicker. Business is about solving problems. If you grin away at work you’ll get stuck in a downward spiral whereas if you sharpen your thoughts you will search for solutions. 


6    You quickly look for a positive action and achieve more. You way of thinking is that        solutions are just around the corner and you look for an answer to you workplace            challenges.


7    You have a higher productivity level. You know that once you’ve knuckled down to         achieve a goal you will feel good and your positive attitude and solution focussed thinking has you finishing your goals and searching for another.

8        You feel good.  Your work is an alignment of you to your desires. If you are in your dream career you will be enjoying your life work, helping others, creating, leading or engaged in some technical operation. If you love what you do, you automatically feel good.

9        YOU GET RESULTS because your enthusiasm and your thinking drives you to want to strive for more.

10 Tips on How to Be More Confident at Work

Businesses desire high performing employees and that means you need to be more confident at work, to get the promotion, get your bonuses, even get a job if you are searching for a new one.

Confidence is about self esteem and the higher your esteem level, the more likely you will succeed in both your professional and personal life. If you do not feel confident that means you are not. If you want greater success at work, it is up to you to learn. Employers are spending less money on training, leaving that to you. However, if they can see you are responsible for your own destiny and education, they are more willing to employ or promote you. Embrace these tips.

  1. Be willing to change your ideas and update views on life.
  2. Learn how to communicate assertively….not passively (saying nothing or like a mouse or aggressively by shouting or thumbing the desk)
  3. Understand that everyone at work has a job…and if you are delegated to do some tasks from your manager and you do not like it….remember that is why you are employed and if you want to be a manager….get some training.
  4. Listen to other ideas and learn to discuss, negotiate, compromise and change.
  5. Accept compliments when you have done something well.
  6. Also - accept it if you have done something wrong and learn from the experience.
  7. Do not be a gossiper, do not ‘rub it in’ about any previous decisions or laugh at others.
  8. Be a generous giver (but not at always at your own expense).
  9. Learn to become a team player…and play your part.
  10. Volunteer to learn and grow at work.

You have free will to make choices in your life. Some of them will lead you towards you achieving your potential in your professional life and some of the challenges may seem too formidable and you give up. However, doing that means at some other time in your life you will experience the same hiccup.

Your life is your ‘big school’ so if you want the best for yourself, you need to move out of your comfort zone and learn to embrace change. Everything that happens to you is an opportunity to learn. Go for it and learn to Become Your Best!
