David Casstevens, formerly of the Dallas Morning News, tells a story about Frank Szymanski, a Notre Dame center in the 1940s, who had been called in as a witness in a civil suit in South Bend, Indiana.
"Are you on the Notre Dame football team this year?" the judge asked.
"Yes Your honor."
"Center, Your Honor."
"How a good a center?"
Szymanski squirmed in his seat, but said firmly; "Sir, I'm the best center Notre Dame has ever had."
Coach Frank Leahy, who was in the courtroom, was surprised. Szymanski had always been modest and unassuming. So when the proceedings were over, he took Szymanski aside and asked why he made such a statement.
'I hated to do it. Coach" he said. "But after all, I was under oath."
"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 BE, brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be."
- Marianne Williamson
When was the last time you allowed yourself to shine?
When was the last time you owned the magnificent being that you are, all the positive qualities you have, and all the great accomplishments that you have achieved.
