It’s about personal development. It’s about creating your own character and pushing it to the limit. It’s about pushing yourself so far out of your own and everybody else’s idea of who you are and what you’re capable of, that you no longer believe in limits. It’s about reaching beyond your so-called potential, because your potential is never where you or anyone else expects it to be, not even close.
Realize your potential and settle for nothing less. As Rumi said, “It is your road and yours alone. Others can walk it with you, but nobody can walk it for you!”
The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibilities for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.
Your life purpose is not some chore handed down by decree, nor something you feel is expected of you, but rather it is your own creation, guided by your inner knowing. That is, the complete fulfillment of who you are, your true values and your potential for loving service.
Success is knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.
Louis Groenewald said, “The attribute of love and respect for the dignity and potential of others always finds channels of excellence in relationships.
Every person and situation may have different channels of excellence such as talents, interests, desires and values.
Passion to seek after channels of excellence in others leads to healing, unity, love, courage, faith, hope and even miracles. The converse is also true.
When we lack respect and patience for the dignity and potential of others, then we tend to find negative channels that hurt and corrupt. What channels we seek in others is our choice.
Most rules are made by people with no authority who want to control and limit you from reaching your true potential. Ignore them, break their rules, and wave at them as you soar past them to greatness.
Never mind the doubters and the blind, as Rumi said, “You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings. Learn to use them and fly.
The inward journey is about finding your own fullness, something that no one else can take away.
As Anne Frank said, “Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
