Coach Carter: Reflection

"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. 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. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. " (Timo Cruz)

Being a mediocre can be really tiring. I used to complain about my high school teachers pressuring me to excel in the things I do, but now, it is tiring to have them to make me do things beyond my capabilities. i want to excel in the things i do, i want to go beyond what people expect me to do, i want to be great. i want to show them i can. i want them to believe i can.
