Everyone is created equally and when we are born, we all have the same potential. But as the life proceeds, we see some of us are more gifted than the others. But this only happens because we create boundaries and limit ourselves within them. We never truly give ourselves the chance to truly harness our potentials. Life always gives multiple chances but we blind ourselves with disbeliefs and prejudice thus we never truly understand what we are capable of doing.
The very common reason for this is our dependence on the others. As children we depend on our parents, our siblings or elders to direct us to do the right thing but with the onset of age that habit does not fade away rather, we become more and more dependent on others to tell us what we should do with our life. Moreover, as children, we are sometimes called ‘losers’ by people around us and this makes us believe that we are of no worth; we have no potential at all.
Did that sadden you? Well, that is not the truth; everybody has got unlimited potential and what we need to do is just to unlock them. To unlock your true potential, you need to start believing in yourself; you need to have confidence in yourself because if you do not believe in yourself then nobody else is going to do it for you. How can you unlock your true potential? Well, here are few ways by which you can:
Accept yourself the way you are:
How can accepting yourself help you to find your true potential? Becoming aware of the direction your life is going and accepting yourself the way you are, you will realise that you are exactly in the position where you were always meant to be and then you will be actually able to move forward in your life. If you think that life will make up for everything wrong that it has done with you then that is hardly going to happen even if you wait for the eternities. Rather accept who you are and where you are to gain the ability to move on with your life to create something better instead of the wrongs that it had done to you. Just accept your life how it is and pledge yourself to bring a change.
Draw a picture of what you want:
If you are willing to make changes then you should be aware of your requirements in the first place. What is the extent of your true potential? How does it seem to you? Where are you in the picture of your potential? Think about all these carefully in your mind and try to visualise it. Once you start visualising you will know what your true potential is and what you meant to do with your life.
Do not fool yourself with excuses:
Are you fooling yourself with different excuses? If you are then stop doing that and accept the change to move on in your life. You cannot achieve anything if you stick in the past by giving yourself dumb excuses so get out of there; stop giving excuses and move on to see multiple opportunities opening in front of you. It is high time to think wisely and say ‘no’ to all the stupid excuses.
Some people consider that they are here for a particular reason and some disagree with that concept. Unless you balancing yourself in that scale and take your life seriously rather than taking it for granted only then you can know what your real potential looks like. Are you taking the pledge to unlock your potential today?
