Editor’s Corner – Jules’ Gems of Inspiration: Find Your Purpose & Shine

In the movie Akeelah and the Bee, Keke Palmer’s character Akeelah quoted Marianne Williamson in a scene when Akeelah was too scared to try to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee, giving some amazing words of inspiration:

“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.”

It’s easy to get discouraged or distracted if you’re not sure where you’re going or don’t think you’re good enough to follow your dreams.

We tend to look at celebrities and those who are in the limelight as those who are significant in society, but in reality everyone on Earth was born with equal worth and the potential to do something amazing. The aim though is not to be amazing to merely impress or ‘be famous,’ but to enrich the lives of those around you.

People who change the world are just ordinary people who found their passion and purpose and put extra hard work to become extraordinary and to share their gifts with the world. When you give your all and try your best at what you’re passionate about over time you will get better and better, like Akeelah did in the movie.

Dreamer ENT features the stories of young people who are doing amazing things now, and not waiting until they are older to start following their passions. The important thing to remember is that we’re all unique, and there’s enough success for everyone. Everyone might not become a famous star in Hollywood but you can be a star in whatever area you’re passionate about – whether it be fashion, medicine or even directing movies. What you have to offer is unique and important, so if you keep it bottled up inside we all miss out. Dare to be different and shine, and maybe those around you will be inspired and do the same!

You have the potential to do something amazing to impact the world, no matter how young you are – go out and shine!” – Julene
