There lies within each person a huge reservoir of untapped potential for achievement, success, happiness,
health and greater prosperity. It’s like an ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities
waiting to be released and channelled toward some great good.
Some people sleep throughout their lives. Some crawl all their lifetime begging men for what belongs to them. Some walk through life lackadaisically and carelessly majoring in minor and minoring in major. Some run through life in pursuit of insignificant things at the expense of vital and significant issues of life. While few fly high accomplishing great feats and leaving their names boldly in the golden plate of history.
All boils to one thing.. AWAKENING THE GIANT WITHIN. Good enough, from the chairman to the gateman, we all have have within us this innate and untapped potential which if it’s utilized, we can move mountains.
Hear this, The tragedy of life is not found in failure but complacency. Not in you doing too much, but doing too little. Not in you living above your means, but below your capacity. It’s not failure but aiming too low, that is life’s greatest tragedy.
I am a big believer that everybody has unusual, and certainly untapped, potential. The more people like that we can line up with their skill set and with their abilities, the more success we get to have. That’s why we need to mind who we relate with. Some people’s major problem is the people they relate with. If you carry a big dream and you walk with men with no dreams, you will become like them in no time.
The late sage Dr Myles Munroe once said “The wealthiest places in the world are not gold mines, oil fields, diamond mines or banks. The wealthiest place is the cemetery. There lies companies that were never started, masterpieces that were never painted… In the cemetery there is buried the greatest treasure of untapped potential. There is a treasure within you that must come out. Don’t go to the grave with your treasure still within YOU.”
That’s why you must refuse to take permission from your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
