Mission Statement of "Normal Difference"

Mission Statement


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 is not just in some of us; it is 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.

    This is amazing. My name is Annette. I live and work in Michigan & Ohio, USA. I have my very old, nearly worn out copy of Marianne's book on my bedroom floor as I write this! What a wonderful "coincidence" to log onto my BetterPlace and see her words, posted by you, yet again. Thank you for posting these very true, spiritually founded words of truth - for everyone. I'm CEO of Alafia Airlines Intl, a start up air freight company seeking to supply medical equipment, supplies, and pharmaceuticals to the Motherland. My heartfelt prayers are for your continued success.
