Reaching Your Potential

There are times when I wonder, if in fact, I’m reaching my potential or if I’ve resigned myself to the life I have. Yet, in all, I still maintain a strong sense of longing for new experiences. Looking back at the things I’ve done in my life, I’ve come to the realization that I’m indeed living up to my potential. Not only that, I continue to push myself to reach all that I dream for. So, how do you know if you’re actually reaching your potential? There are several things to look for:

  • You have realistic self-worth and balanced perceptions of things around you. In other words, you’re not denying the truth.
  • You help yourself by helping others help you, kind of like the paying it forward dynamic.
  • Allow yourself to be open to the experiences around you.
  • Focus on being an observer to your thoughts and allowing yourself to fully think and dream.
  • Seek to stop and experience life through life breaks.

If you embrace your dreams and wishes, you’ll take that crucial step to become what you want to be. It’ll transform you. Really! Keep this in mind as it’s an important point to remember when you catch yourself in moments of doubt. This is no different from the childhood dreams we weaved in our younger years, those dreams that gave way to a higher learning, new relationships, and career. Yet, somewhere along the way we took the wrong turn and ended up in a job we didn’t like or perhaps a relationship without a solid foundation. Regardless, we somehow lost our will to pursue all our dreams, we lost our passion, and we lost our desire to dream.

We can redefine ourselves with new dreams or reveal ourselves in the dreams we always held. If you take a real concerted step forward to realize your dreams, you’ll become empowered with every step you take along the way. The pursuit of new experiences will tell you that you indeed “can.” From here you begin to believe more strongly in your potential. This behavior will set change in motion. People around you will begin to realize your successes and this in turn will give you confidence and further strengthen the drive to realize your goals because, through the process, you proved to yourself that you “can.”

The pursuit of our dreams is to change the way we feel. It’s an emotional journey that we take to bring contentment to our lives.

Are you dreaming to reach your potential?
