Your Potential is Infinite

I used to read a lot of books about leadership and setting goals and going after your dreams…every book I read talked about how every human being has incredible, untapped potential…I wanted SO badly to believe the things that I read in those books…but, I always thought…’well, everyone but ME has huge potential…”

…and I find the more I talk to others that this is a common thread….why do we believe that the good things in life are destined for everyone but us? I remember in my twenties the most important thing in the world to me was that everyone liked me, that I made everyone happy…believe me…that is no way to reach your potential. I know I never listened to what was calling to me…what my heart was saying…my heart has ALWAYS known the way to my divine potential…but I have let my heart sing on deaf ears for way too many years….always listening too hard to what everyone else was saying…what others felt was my potential, or what I perceived others were wanting or what would make them ‘like me’….until I plugged my ears to the world and turned my ears to my heart, I did not begin to understand the power and truth of potential.

“Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news.
The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be!
How much you can love!
What you can accomplish!
And what your potential is!”
Anne Frank

I started to believe in potential when I finally started putting principles into practice…when I started watching people that I admire and there was something so confident, yet humble about them…I have found that what they all have in common is that they know EXACTLY who they are…they know how God sees them, they know that they have infinite potential and therefore anything is possible…everything is worth working towards….AND….because they know who they are…they know who I am…that I have infinite potential…they treat me and everyone else in that truth…that we all have infinite potential…that everything is a possibility….and there is nothing so comforting as being in the presence of a person who knows exactly who he is….or she…..

Here’s what I believe so strong that I wish I could exclaim it right through your computer to you right now….

The greatest gift you can give to another human being
is to remind them of their infinite potential…
to be there to say, “I BELIEVE IN YOU…I KNOW YOU CAN DO
WHATEVER YOU SET YOUR MIND AND HEART TO DO…”

….because that is the TRUTH folks…and when we don’t believe a truth this important and this pure and this beautiful…terrible, tragic, painful things happen….there are not many things more tragic than potential that is left to rot….or screaming inner voices that are ignored….or when we get stuck in our past…stuck in the quicksand of mistakes or the myth of age…

“Your past is not your potential.
In any hour you can choose to liberate the future.”

Marilyn Ferguson

….it is SO important that we remember this…that we remember what is important and what is not important…that we get very very still, very very often and ask our Truthteller to show us WHO WE ARE….and that we listen, and that we believe what the answer is….and then we go out and LIVE THAT WAY……LIVE IN A WAY THAT SHOWS THAT WE KNOW WHO WE ARE….that we know who he is and she is and they are…that we ALL have this incredible capacity……let others experience this for themselves when they are with us…show them their potential by believing in ours.

“We are hoarding potentials so great that
they are just about unimaginable.”
Jack Schwartz

…the most important part of remembering this truth is that God is there to help you every step of the way…but you have to ask….He is there to help you get there, to show you the way…and to pick you up when you fall down…He knows you can do it because He Made You……

“Reach up as far as you can and God will
help you reach the rest of the way.”
Greg Hickman

…the wonder and beauty of diamonds is that they start as a lump of coal…then through a lot of pressure and pressing and time and change…they become another kind of rock…then they are chiseled away at…until they are faceted…then multi-faceted…and then they just sparkle…but we must always remember what makes them sparkle…not only the fact that they went through the whole process of becoming a diamond and then getting chipped away at….but that they can now REFLECT light from other sources…every one of those facets is sparkling because it is reflecting light from other light sources….so beautiful….

I hope you’ll take some time today to think about who you really are…what you are capable of….and how living this way will affect everyone you love….

That is my wish for you…and I’ll do my very best to do the same.

you are so very loved
