Mother Teresa’s Prayer of Courage

There is a light that beckons you forward and it comes from within you.

Embrace it.

Don’t try to hide in the shadow of fear it casts behind you.

For if you are committed to finding the courage to live with an open heart, there is no greater way to love others, or to love yourself, than to fulfill your unique potential, to express your unique greatness and to become the unique leader you have it within you to become.

Finding the courage to be a leader and touch the lives of others in ways that only you can do, is the most profound act of love, and service, and significance.

Dare to want more from your life and to dig deeper into yourself to experience its mystery, its richness, and its sacredness more fully. 

For  when you  do so you  will see with  greater clarity  just how
universal we all are.

And sensing that we are all part of a bigger whole, you will come to know, perhaps for the first time, that your life is truly holy, and that it is not just your responsibility to honor the sacred within you, but your obligation.

This is the truth that speaks from my heart.
I invite you to open yours to receive it.
