The fear of not finding a quote...

Trying to remember a specific quote about fear of success, and my google-fu is failing.

The quote was longer than most quotes, and went something to the effect of "We are not afraid of failing, but we are afraid of succeeding and becoming everything we can be...." There were religious overtones to it, but I can't remember much more than that. Any ideas?

I think the Williamson quote is often attributed to Nelson Mandella. Perhaps he quoted her in a speech.

I had seen the same quote previously attributed to Nelson Mandela, and today I learned that this is incorrect. Thanks frwagon and alligatorman.
