Welcome to my personal landing site.
Is it depressing to have nothing to "blog" about? My name is James Shanks. I work for the federal government, have a lovely wife and generally live the american dream. I have but one goal...to grow each day.
How Great I Am
“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. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. 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.”-MW
