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.
~ Marianne Williamson

Chariots of Fire by Steve Jurvetson

Today I am featuring a short video by Randy Cantrell. Randy is the founder of Bula Network and you can learn more about Randy by reading here. I can tell you  from a few conversations that I've had with Randy that he is sincere and has a heart for others.

This 4-minute video asks a powerful two-word question. Take a look.

What impacted me the most from the video?

- "We have such self-limiting beliefs."
- "We cross bridges we'll never get to."
- "Why not chase whatever it is you feel the urge to chase."
- "There is safety in not advancing. There’s safety in not trying something."

Stop living a safe life. 

Stop waiting until tomorrow to begin working on your dream. 

Stop living to please others.

I hope today and all weekend, you keep repeating those two simple words to yourself: "Why not?

Please check out Randy's awesome blog at

QUESTION: What are you asking "Why not?" about today? Please leave comments below.

Thanks for the kindness, Jason. We often defeat ourselves before we ever start. I'll leave you with a couple of my favorite quotes about it.

“It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.” [Sally Kempton]

“I am an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them never happened.” [Mark Twain]
