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.” – Marianne Williamson (Author)

    Excellent. Very inspiring quotes by great women.. We all have inherent qualities to do extraordinary in our life but fear of failure overpowers our will- power and we cannot achieve what we are destined to do. Let’s be liberated , work hard to achieve our ambition .

    I have to give it up to Marissa Mayer for her quote. I had always been a very introverted person when one day I realized that in order to reach new heights as a personal wardrobe stylist I had to totally push myself far beyond my comfort zone. This habit keeps me in check with my goals and far beyond.

    That is an awesome collection of quotes!! I especially enjoy the Maya Angelou quote – it really inspires me to have a positive effect on every person I interact with every day.

    Great article. It also shows that happiness and success are achieved the same way for both genders. Everyone should read Arianna Huffington’s quote “…understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”
