Cool Inspirational Poster of Marianne Williamson Quote

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

by David Cory

The EQ tool of the month is a poster you can print off and put on your bulletin board or frame it and hang it over your desk or in your work station. It’s a quotation that you may well recognize and that inspired me so much I asked my brilliant graphic design team from PinkSheepMedia to make it into a poster. The quotation comes from Marianne Williamson’s, “A Return to Love: Reflections on the principles of a course in miracles”. It was made famous by Nelson Mandela when he used it in his inauguration speech in 1994 when he became president of South Africa and often gets incorrectly attributed to him.

Williamson poster coverThe quotation, as you may re-call is, “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 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.”

    I was happy to discover this screen.
    It has two typos in the section below that you might want to correct:

It was made famous by Nelson Mandela when he used it in his inauguration speech in 1994 when he became president of South Africa and often get’s incorrectly attributed to him.”

    Williamsons should be Williamson’s
    and
    often get’s should be often gets

    a misplaced apostrophe

    I absolutly LOVE this quote. Type errors and all! :) It just fits me as I am going through an emotional period of meeting myself again, realizing my self-worth, and learning to accept that I have the God given blessing to shine with my own light. No longer living in the dark shadows of a controlling, abusive husband.
