I’ma show you, how great I am.

Yesterday I was down in the dumps and in need of a pick me up.

I guess being back at work after a week off with my family has brought me down.

Over the weekend I was watching the trailer for a documentary/reality movie called “Snow on tha Bluff”.  In the background there’s audio clips from Muhammad Ali, Rocky, and Coach Carter. It’s amazing and watching  it got me going today. I’m ready to conquer the day.

I thought I’d share a bit with you 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.

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.

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.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

If you want to watch the entire trailer thing follow the link.

Hope this gets you going today too!


  1. Love the shots of Ali. I have a poster in my office of Ali Standing over Sonny Liston. Knocked him out – first minute, first round. When Ali lit the Olympic flame in 96, it was one of the greatest sports moments ever.
