You are pure potential. Confucius said “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” You can experience an exceptional quality of life filled with joy, excitement, happiness, love, creativity and fulfillment when you strive to reach your full potential.
Reaching your full potential is the highest expression of your life. Every human being was born for a life of increase. We are always looking for avenues for increase. We want more joy, happiness, promotion, education, connection with God, great relationships, love, money, career advancement, financial freedom, and so on. One of the main reasons that you want more out of life is because being more, doing more, giving more was wired into your DNA since birth. Your potential is unlimited and if you know the full extent of all that you can accomplish, it will amaze you. The question is, why not? You can unlock your full potential by intentionally making a conscious decision of not throwing away your curiosity and exploration as a child; maintaining an open mind to explore and try new things; willingness to risk being unpopular as you pursue your dreams and ambitions; working smart and hard at whatever you set out to do; having clarity of who you truly are, your identity, what you truly want and its significance to you. Your life should be a life of increase and secondly to pass that on by leaving everybody you come across with the impression of increase. That is what you were wired to do. You should take full responsibility for your life, your actions and inaction. You have the potential so why not explore this potential to the maximum?
You were born for more and should be true to your identity. Anything less is short changing you and living below your potential. Stretch your abilities to the maximum and you will be amazed at what you are capable of doing in your life time. Many times I pause to take stock of where I came from and what I have accomplished and I am awestruck with what is possible when we allow ourselves to do all that we are capable of doing. Settling for less is a choice and you should strive to be the very best in whatever you are engaged in. Every single day millions of people around the globe have talked themselves into settling in for the basic life because in their minds having all is too much work and far-fetched. Knowing where I came from and the strides I have made tells me that we can all achieve a lot in this life when we make up our minds to be more and work towards that goal and ambition. Are you in a business for yourself, grow it to the highest level. Are you employed, go beyond the call of duty and give your very best and more. Stretch yourself to your maximum potential and you will be rewarded not only with personal growth but also from your employer. The world rewards greatness, you have greatness in you. Why not go for it!
