    Some men are like stars. Some "shine" and some don't!
    In fact it's a quote from my favourite movie The Shining. I changed it a little!
    So what is the reason of it or do you agree with that statement?

    That's been recognized throughout history and is still a bit of a mystery. In modern times it's been most noticeable with prominent movie actors, who are literally called stars. It's something a screen test hopes to show, whether that person stands out on the screen and "shines" as you say, or just blends into the background. It seems to be one of those qualities you either have or you don't, a combination of appearance and personality that creates a "presence."

    "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 frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' 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 people won't feel insecure around you. 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 all of us. And when 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."

    --Nelson Mandela in his inauguration speech in 1994

    Some get it, others don't.


    My two cents.

    Commanding a room when you walk into is a skill and talent, not a birthright. The stars learn to do it and become stars. The rest of us just wonder how they did it.

    Most people are genuinely afraid of shining and don't.

    There are people who shine and are extraordinary. There is no other way to be........no other choice. Something deep inside invites curiosity about life and people. What most people want and accept as truth will never be satisfying.

    I totally agree.
