Your Greatness Lies In Your PotentialMindthriller
You are remarkable! You have special talents and abilities that make you different from every other person who has ever lived. There are certain things you can do or learn to do, that can make you extraordinarily valuable to yourself and to others. Your job is to identify your special areas of uniqueness and then commit yourself to becoming very good in those areas.
All of us have within us the seeds of greatness, but everyone’s potential is different. Some of us are great at telling stories (Good speakers), telling jokes (Comedians), some excel at inventing things, solving problems or driving businesses. Which ever is your special skill, if you would take a decision to give your hundred percent commitment to it, you will literally astound yourself.
It is no longer news that many people ultimately realize that despite their efforts and accomplishments, they lack a true sense of career satisfaction and fulfillment. During my career in cooperate and government organizations, I have met a surprisingly large number of impressive directors, managers and executives who expressed deep frustration in their careers. They look back and felt that they should have achieved more or even wished that they had chosen a different career altogether.
Some other people have landed in a job or career because of their past hurts, disappointments, failures, and put downs that have tainted their self-image and belief about who they are. Many people are held back because they don’t believe they are worthy of success. They can’t see themselves beyond the run of the mill life they are accustomed to. They look for opportunities from a limited perspective of what they already have and can’t see past this.
You can look beyond your current position, income, influence, or whatever it may be. Your sense of self-worth will have a huge impact on what you are willing to do, so take off the blinders blocking your brilliance and go for it.
Are you are experiencing similar feelings of frustration?
Examine Yourself And Take Your Potential Seriously
Our potential is only realized when we choose to act in ways that drive our success. No matter how capable we are, unless we choose to apply our potential, we aren’t likely to reach the heights we were born to scale. Often, it is easiest to discover what we do best by seeing what comes naturally to us but always a struggle for others. Many times, we look down on such things; perhaps it doesn’t look professional or classy enough.
You are designed in such a way that you will most enjoy doing the things that you have the ability to be very best at. The fact that you enjoy something means that you probably have within yourself the capability to be excellent in that area. Don’t cover-up the natural qualities and incredible nature that you were endowed with, put it to work; that is where your greatness lies. Our greatness is our gift to the world, it is what we can contribute to make the world sweet, wonderful and a delight to experience.
Take stock of your unique talents and abilities on a regular basis. What is it that you do exceptionally well? What are you good at? What do you do easily and well that is difficult for other people? Looking back at your journey in life, what has been most responsible for your success in life and work till date?
Decide for yourself to throw your whole heart into doing that special thing very well. Know yourself, take ownership, energize yourself and act Now!
