Dare to Live without Limits

Don’t let your potential go to waste

        What is unused potential? Consider some examples. You carry an umbrella, but don’t open it when the rain starts falling. You own a bicycle that you push instead of riding. You go fishing without putting a hook on the end of your line. Your home is filled with books, which you never read. You buy a new TV but never plug it in. You have a great car which you never start.

        Each of these scenarios illustrates unused potential. Whatever assets you have are irrelevant if they are not used. The same is true of all of your internal resources. What you have the capability of doing is of no consequence if you never do anything.

Even slow progress forward makes a difference

        You have clear, meaningful goals but your progress towards them is taking much longer than you anticipated. You feel disheartened, questioning your ability to obtain your objectives. This results in a diminished level of motivation.

        It’s easy to become frustrated when making slower progress toward a goal than planned. But slow progress is better than no progress. Slow progress forward definitely beats no progress, or any progress backward.

Have you reached a turning point in your life?

        You may be traveling down the same path you have been unhappy with for many years. Nothing will change for the better until you take action which makes a positive difference. You have reached your turning point when you make a firm decision to do whatever is necessary to change the direction of your life.

        You have the power to make today your turning point. All it takes is making the decision and commitment to do so. Some people wait until they can no longer endure their current circumstances before deciding to make significant changes.
