Harnessing the Power of Your Potential
Everyone was born with a tremendous amount of potential. You start learning about it from the arms of your parents. Then education and the people you interact with improved it until you can recognize it yourself. Admittedly, some are more gorgeous than you are; some were given higher IQs and some have more talent than you have. But that’s the beauty of it – you are a unique individual and whatever you have, can be molded the way you like it.
Essentially, your potential is something you know you can do. Find out what it is and you’re halfway to getting empowered with it. It could be anything – a good academic record, a flair for words, an inclination in the arts or sports, beauty, talent, etc. If you know what you have, then you can use it. List down your talents however small: baking goodies, a neat handwriting, making caricatures, craft-making, etc. You’ll never guess how some successful people started out by using the little that they know and parlayed into something big!
Now that you know what talents you have, think outside the box and find ways to use it. Remember not to start comparing what you can do with what others can. You are unique and you must mind your own backyard. The worst that you can do is to scare yourself so much that you just hide it out for fear of failing. Start out small and get more creative as the skill gets honed through time. For example, you discovered that you like making beaded bracelets and friends started admiring what you make. Why don’t you ask around for the possibility of you making some for them at minimal price? Soon you’ll find that word of mouth advertising will get you more and more orders. Wouldn’t it be great to get paid for doing something that you like?
You can let your new-found gift be just a hobby where you can earn a few bucks or go full time in doing it. You can decide how much or how little you want to spend time on it You can even take steps to improve it if you want – take lessons, practice more, read on new designs or patterns, attend seminars, innovations, etc. Whatever you feel is comfortable for you would be the best. The important thing is to use the inborn talent you were blessed with..
When you start harnessing the power of your potential, the possibilities will be endless.
