Dimmed Lights You dimming your light to let another star shine bright? Don’t ever dim your light, minimize your success, explain away your strengths or otherwise dumb down yourself to make another feel comfortable. Instead, of bringing yourself down, reach and pull them up. Teach them that there is room for everyone to win. More than one person can have success. Teach them that while their preconceived notions were incorrect that you all can still associate and have mutual respect.
