Let your gifts shine – that is why they were given to you. That is the message I have been giving to people who are shy about putting them out there. It’s not egotistical, self-centered, narcissistic, big headed or any of those things you are afraid people are thinking. And yes, you are good enough.
Lately I have been around a lot of performers and artists preparing for another big show. There are those who can’t wait to grab the spotlight, and there are many who are uncomfortable and struggle with feelings of worthiness to claim the light.
This is what I told them to be more confident.
KNOW YOU WERE GIVEN GIFTS FOR A REASON
If you can accept that your gifts come from the divine and you were given them for a reason, it is much easier to also accept that they are meant to be shared. You have something to offer. Its about something bigger than you.
LET THE PURPOSE BE YOUR FOCUS
We all have a purpose. If you aren’t sure what, then notice what you love to do and what comes naturally. Then pay attention to the benefit it provides. When you focus on that, the purpose becomes more important than anything else.
USE YOUR PURPOSE TO PUSH AGAINST FEAR
Pushing yourself to shine, even when scared to be in the spotlight, is tough. There’s only one way to get through it – do it. But there are tricks. Imagine a golden stream of light pouring into the top of your head and filling your body. It’s the gentle fast energy of the divine. It will help remind you of the divinity of your gifts and calm and encourage you to shine your light.
