'The most powerful thing anyone has ever said to me'By Olivia Ruello | Jun 20, 16 10:01 AM
An important reminder from Business Chicks CEO Olivia Ruello ...
A woman I admire just about more than anyone in the world once said to me, “The light within you must shine brighter than the light that is on you,” and it’s one of the most powerful things anyone has ever said to me.
Sometimes it feels like there are a million lights on us – people want things from you, there’s always a pile of work to do and a whole other pile of stuff you feel you should be doing too. It’s easy to be blinded and paralysed by those lights and, if you let them solely guide you, often innovation and creativity disappear and you can lose a little of your magic.
The light within you – your purpose – must always be stronger than the pressure you’re under, and sometimes you need to be reminded to reconnect to that. So, this is that reminder: just for this second, tune into your truth and live it, breathe it, beam it.
