Seriously, ask yourself this question: “What is my potential?”
Let’s start with a definition – I’m a big Webster Dictionary fan:
1. possible, as opposed to actual:
2. capable of being or becoming:
2. a latent excellence or ability that may or may not be developed.
In the question, potential is the adjective – so the meaning is what is possible or capable of being or becoming. Wow – that’s pretty broad, isn’t it? Try narrowing the focus a notch y adding to the question: What is my potential in business? In personal relationships? In deciding where I want to live or what I want to do professionally? The list could go on and on. The point is, we all have the potential to do more, be more and live more than we are currently. Now here is the telling question; when did you last explore your potential? Again, seriously consider this. When did you last delve into possibilities, explore options, deepen your understanding of yourself?
Our ‘immediate gratification’ lifestyle is not conducive to asking these penetrating questions that may not have an instantaneous answer. And yet, these are possibly the most important questions you could be asking yourself. To do more, be more, have more, we have to change our thinking followed by changing our actions.
Are you willing to ask these question? What other questions could you ask that would bring your potential into the light of your life?
