Living to Your Potential

 

Goethe said it best. “Everyone holds is fortune in his own hands, like a cultor the raw material he will fashion into a figure. But it’s the same with that type of artistic activity with all others: We are merely born with the capability to do it. The skill to mold the material into what we want must be learned and attentively cultivated.”

What are you doing with the gifts you’ve been given? Are you truly maximizing your potential? Are you seeing the world as a world of possibilities or have a few setback created a mental attitude of resignation? The greatest achievements come from a sort of intelligence not taught in schools—it is a power that represents the pinnacle of human potential. It is often revealed when a deadline looms as it focuses us and we produce a quality of work that shocks us. But often, we return to our distracted selves afterward. This sensation of mastery where we have great command of ourselves is something that can be replicated over and over again, with focus. But it takes awareness and discipline to keep ourselves in a state of mastery. What disciplines can you commit to today to bring that highest level of potential with you on a daily basis? When would NOW be a good time to start that discipline?
