On the Joy of Living Your Potential

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” His words speak to the power of one’s potential which awaits release in the moment of our decision. Our potential is not something of our past, but a gift awaiting realization at every moment of life. It is that magical instant when great leaders choose to maximize their human potential by escaping the fears and limitations of others and stretching beyond their own believed limits into a new becoming. Zig Ziglar beautifully captures this moment writing: “When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that’s when passion is born.”

May we remember always the wise counsel of Confucius: “The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” Will, desire, urge – the fires to be stoked with passion and purpose. It is our choice. May we choose to not let our dreams just be dreams. Rather, may we rally to Hal Elrod’s call: “Let today be the day you give up who you’ve been for who you can become.” Become the person you decide to be! The best is yet to come. Let’s enjoy the journey to its fullest. Life is so very beautiful and good.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
