Over 7.6 billion humans on the planet have the potential and the capability of providing solutions to the perennial social, economic and political problems facing the nations of the world.
An Online Dictionary defines “Potentiality” as the latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success or usefulness.
While the term potential refers to someone showing the capacity to develop into something in the future.
For you to discover your potential you must have a positive thinking habit, because many of our potentials manifest in a time of great challenges or when we are under pressure.
So when you face challenges or you are under great pressure just remember there is something in you tougher than that current situation.
This is the reason the good book quotes, “As a man thinks so is he.”
Another avenue to discover your potential is having the right information.
Benjamin Disraeli says and I quote “As a general rule, the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information.” This is a pointer to the fact that there is power in gathering information.
Information is key to the realization of your inner strength.
Those who became great today did not achieve greatness on the platter of ignorance, but they had a curious mind in searching and providing solutions to problems by putting their talents to use.
You can discover your potential through conscious effort.
First, look inward to find out that thing you do without stress. That one thing you do that people always want you to do more. For instance, maybe you speak courageously in public, singing, playing instruments, etc.
Once you can identify your talent, then you must consistently put it to use through practice.
Challenges will sometimes set in, but your courage and knowledge will speed up the discovery of your inner gift, which will open the door to you fulfilling your purpose.
Limitations are the shadows of your potentials, therefore the more you strive to discover your potential the faster your limitations disappear.
“Discovering your potential is inevitable if truly you want to fulfil your purpose in life”.
No matter your present circumstances; you are a solution. In you lies the strength and capability of turning your world around to making you the envy of your generation.
“Until you become so hungry for a change, you remain stagnant.” — Temitayo Abudu
