Every speck of scientific research on the subject of human potential says that we all have much more potential power and ability than we are currently using.
Do you know your true potential?
Have you reached your full potential?
Most of us are unaware of the accomplishments we can achieve in our lives. We become tied down to the daily routine that seems to be working, (for the most part) and settle in for the long haul. We either choose not to or do not have time to look deeper into our true potentials.
It is of paramount importance to unlock your ultimate potential…
Not realizing your true potential is probably one of the bigger regrets as people get older; realizing that you could’ve been more is one of the biggest emotional upheavals you can experience in your life.
That is why it is quintessential that you do not let opportunities fly away; for those fortunate enough to live in a society where there is free will to do and be pretty much anything you want, you must capitalize the opportunity to self-actualize, to be the best you can be.
To be the best you, here are things you can do to realize and unlock your ultimate potential:
1) Discover Your Full Potential
No matter what innate talents you were born with, what family you were born into, the money you have made or lost, or the times of difficulty or lucky breaks, nothing will get you to where you want to be better than understanding your full potential.
It’s the breaking factor in every successful story. The popular poor man get’s lucky story, or the how I changed the world with my bare hands tale comes from one important factor- the people who succeed are the people who learn how to tap into something innate inside them, and live and breathe their dreams.
Each one of us has potential lying innate inside of us. The brilliant part is each one of us has a potential that is uniquely ours. The potential to become a better person, to gain more respect, to be more successful, to find happiness, to achieve anything we want.
It’s a mad mix of our genetics, our environment, the way our body has been designed and the talents we were born with.
Of course, the first step is discovering just what that is.
It can be very frustrating to go on with life not knowing what you are supposed to achieve…
The world is a negative place and the forces are pulling us from every direction, learning to avoid the negativity is like learning to walk on a minefield.
For some this is an instinctive process, often helped by a watchful parent or teacher that spotted something in us from an early age and called it into being.
For others, it’s a struggle to identify. It has been proven that we absorb most of the negativity through our unconscious mind, not even realizing it is happening.
Being weighed down by your own or others negativity can destroy your chances of reaching your true potential so learn to control other people’s energies as you control your destiny.
Environment can also play a part. We often learn about what we are good at through trying new things. If you lived in an area where there weren’t a lot of options, or you didn’t have a lot of money to pay for classes or for travel, then you may have not experienced the things you are naturally good at.
The most direct way to live smarter is to evaluate your current alignment with all of the things up to now.
Take a moment and ask yourself…
- What are my gifts and talents?
- What am I good at?
- Where can I use my strengths?
- Where can I exercise my values?
- Where can I make a difference?
- What makes me comfortable in life?
What is it that you can do even when you are not being paid? If we all concentrated in what we love doing, we would be happier and more fulfilled.
Loving what you do gives you the strength to weather personal setbacks, face and address your weaknesses, overcome adversity and work the long hours typically needed to reach your full potential.
Once you identify your values, passions and strength, it is easier for you to grow as a person and reach for your full potential. There is a connection between reaching your potential and being aware of your passions. And more often than not your passions will flow from your values and strengths.
When you connect with your passions it allows you to act every day from your heart; it gives you the energy to propel you toward your goals, while overcoming setbacks and failure.
