When we are able, or willing, to put aside our limiting self-beliefs then our potential is able to go about glittering bright. Such moments may unfortunately be rare, yet in our life they are invariably memorable for all concerned when they occur.
We might say it is part of human nature to be cautious about glittering bright. After all, goes the thinking, “All that glitters is not gold.” Yes, this line of thinking is common. Yet lasting success incorporates substance besides the ability to dazzle. Glittering bright as a result of concentrated preparation and practice need not be considered as a bad thing.
On the other hand, glittering bright in some instances may in actual fact occur away from the spotlight in a fashion known only to the recipient of our activities. Shouting about our accomplishments is not always the best way to promote or publicize our endeavours.
At these times our words may sound empty, whereas giving space to others to speak on our behalf is a more beneficial way of communicating our achievements, identified here as moments in which we are glittering bright.
