Ever wondered what you a truly capable of?
Are you curious to know the depth of the power that is within you?
I believe that as human beings, we have massive amounts of potential within us.
Look at human history and the great things that we have achieved as individuals and as a collective.
Sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day activities that we don’t stop and think about what greatness lies within us.
I heard a great exercise this morning, which can help you to gain some perspective on how you would like to live your life, express your potential.
Imagine that you’re on the way to a funeral in 3 years from now, you arrive and head to the casket and see that it’s you.
Then put yourself in the position of those who are going to speak at your funeral, feel the emotions both up and down that those at your funeral may be experiencing and imagine what they might say.
The reason this is important is because it helps you to become aware of what is truly valuable to you and how would you use the potential that you have been given.
So now you have an idea of you might like to use that potential, but then how do you actually get there?
So many of us start with the best of intentions; “I’m going to be healthier”, “I’m going to lose weight”, “I will open a business”, “I’m going to make more money”, “I’ll be more loving in my romantic relationship”, “I’ll be more patient with my kids” – then we fall back into old programs and nothing really changes.
The question becomes, “How do we really create lasting change in our lives?”, “How do we really reach for our potential?”
It comes down to the matter of having the right energy and intention behind your potential.
But what does that mean?
If you want to drive your car from your home to the other side of the country, you must fill the engine with petrol – not orange juice. Orange juice won’t get you anywhere no matter how delicious it is, you need the right fuel.
Let me put it another way, the way you are internally will be what determines your external actions.
If there is a person lying on the street suffering in pain and an angry hateful person walks past, they may kick them, take their wallet and walk away. If a loving kind walks past, they may stop and ask them if they are alright and help them.
The difference was the internal state, the inner way of being which determined the outward action.
So how does this relate to your potential?
If you want to reach to your highest potential you must have the necessary energy/fuel to get you to it.
If you want to express excellence, you must be excellence.
If you want to be unconditionally loving, you must have the energy of unconditional love.
If you want success, you must be a success.
Your internal energy reflects your external action.
Another problem we come across is that many people don’t take responsibility for their inner condition. They will blame the weather for their mood or their partner for their life situation, taking no responsibility for the way they are. By doing that they are actually giving the power to external circumstances.
So I ask you, what is your potential?
What do you want from your life?
What do you need to become mentally, emotionally and energetically (your state of being) in order to fulfil your potential?
