Where actually lies our potentials? This question is multifaceted and poses a lot of uncertain answers. Our contemporary age seem to have lost sight of the true meaning of our existence on earth. Have you been able to locate and unleash the potentials in you? Do you find it difficult to access your abilities? Or do you need help in defining your ambitions? If your answer to any of these question is affirmative, then it is recommended that you read on and watch the change you have been seeking for actualize. Abraham Lencholn once said, “And in the end, its not the years in your life that count, it is the life in your years”.
You cannot decide to make a change if you don’t believe in change.
What must we do to unleash our potentials?
We are often moved to compare ourselves to others without reminding ourselves of how unique we are. Always remember that there is only one ‘you’ in this whole world and there can never be a duplicate of you. You are unique and special and your path to success can never be compared to those of others. Never compare yourself to others because it does more harm than good.
Fear of the unknown! Fear of failure! It is high time you dropped that part of you that reminds you how incapable you are. Fear can lock up the chances of unleashing your potentials. Believe that you can do it. Redefine failure s the inability to complete a new task at some point in time but a chance of learning better ways of carrying out that task. Thomas Edwin failed 4,999 times before finally developing the light bulb. For him, he never saw failure as an end instead he saw it as 4999 ways of not developing a light bulb and steps closer to making a light bulb. Dr. Ben Carson never gave up on himself because he knew he could redefine that fear of failure. We hat about you? Yes you the reader. Do you believe that you could be a step closer to your long awaited success? Can you give it a try again now? Eliminate fear and watch your potentials rise.
