Today we’ll discuss how to tap into your hidden potential – that powerful force that lies within you. Find ways to bring it to the forefront and you’ll change your life, the life of those you love, and perhaps even the world!
A lot of us tap into our potential, but the real question is this:
Are you tapping into your FULL potential?
If you’re like most of us, you’ve just scratched the surface of what you can do. You want to be all that you can be.
The secret is to expose yourself to expose your potential
We’re not talking about doing something that will get you arrested! We mean that you should expose yourself to the following four “P’s”:
#1 – Plan
Start with where you want to be. Some time ago, we discussed how to visualize the life you want. Develop a clear vision of your dream life. A vision so clear in your mind that you FEEL yourself living it, as if it were actually happening right now.
Then look at where you’re at now. Connect the dots – figure out how to get from where you are to where you want to be.
#2 – People
Spend your time with the right people – people who have already done what you want to do or people who are TRYING to do the same thing you are. The common denominator is common experiences.
We attended a seminar with a speaker who talked about this very thing. She pays to get coached by mentors who can help her get to the next level. They’ve been where she is; so they can help her get where they are now.
#3 – Programs
We’re talking about media, books, and other resources that are available to you. Of course, we like to think that BIGG Success is your most important source for great information and inspiration. Pat, who is a regular listener, said this:
“I listen to The BIGG Success Show every day on my way to work. It gets my mojo going.”
Okay, enough shameless self-promotion. The point is there are a lot of great resources out there. One of our favorites is watching survival type shows on TV because survival and entrepreneurship have a lot in common!
#4 – Projects
Tackle a project you’ve never done before. Stretch yourself – get out of your comfort zone.
It may be a project at work. Or a volunteer project. You can always take up a hobby. Or sign up for a class. It may be completely new to you or you may do something where you learn new skills in your specialty.
Think back to your childhood. Was there an activity that used to fascinate you? Why not explore it again. You’ll find that it helps you personally and professionally. It will also help you learn more about your potential.
Our final thought is simply this – TAKE ACTION! Finding your potential is a process. Pick a “P” and go for it!
Our BIGG Quote today is by Wilma Rudolph, the great athlete.
“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion. The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”
There is power in your unfulfilled dreams and desires. Only you can find that latent potential within you and do the great things you were born to do.
It leads to BIGG Success!
