Quotes From The Video:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but that we are powerful beyond measure.”
~ Nelson Mandela
“I’m gonna show you how great I am!
Last night I cut the light off in the bedroom, hit the switch and was in the bed before the room was dark.”
“I’m gonna show you how great I am!
Only last week I murdered a rock.
Injured a stone.
Hospitalized a brick.
I’m so mean I make medicine sick.”
“I have wrastled with an alligator.
I done tussled with a whale.
I done handcuffed lightning, thrown thunder in jail.”
~ Muhammad Ali
“This kid’s gonna be the greatest kid in the world. This kid’s gonna be better than anyone I ever knew.”
“But somewhere along the lines you changed. You stopped being you. You let people stick a finger in your face and try to tell ya – you’re no good. And when things got hard you started looking for someone to blame. Like a big shadow.”
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place – and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.”
“You, me or nobody’s gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you’re hit – it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward! How much you can take and KEEP MOVING FORWARD! That’s how winning is done! Cuz if you’re willing to go through all the battling you’re gonna go through to get what you wanna get. Who’s got the right to stop you?”
“I mean maybe some of you guys have got something you never finished, something you really want to do, something you never said to someone – SOMETHING! And, you’re told no – even after you’ve paid your dues. WHO’S GOT THE RIGHT TO TELL YOU NO!? NOBODY!”
“It’s your right to listen to your gut and it ain’t nobody’s right to say no after you’ve earned the right to BE WHO YOU WANNA BE AND DO WHAT YOU WANNA DO!”
“Now if you know what your worth than go out and get what your worth – but you gotta be willing to take the hits! And, not point your finger and say you ain’t what you wanna be because of HIM OR HER OR ANYBODY! COWARDS DO THAT AND THAT AIN’T YOU! YOU’RE BETTER THAN THAT!”
“It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s 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.”
~ Marianne Williamson (Also quoted by Nelson Mandela)
