Do you know who you are? most people do not know who they are and they undermine themselves. If someone has got an idea to start a business or recognises an opportunity, that person would say who am I to start a business immediately after that a negative thought comes out to support the statement that what if I fail and people would lough at me. Let me just forget about idea and live my life the way it is, secure and safe. That is where most people miss it because being in a habit zone, you will miss your passion and your wealth; and you will follow your pension which will lead you to your retirement. Now just think about it after sixty years of your life, would you tell people that you have enjoyed your life to the fullest because you were afraid to take risks and explore more opportunities.
Did you know that the most wealthiest spot on this planet is not the gold and diamond mine, it is the cemetery or graveyard around your local area. Those people who passed on died with God’s ideas and talents, they had dreams or goals that never came to pass such as songs that were never sung or books that were never written and visions that never became a reality.
Because some of those people made wrong decisions. They were hanging with wrong friends and some were involved in substance abuse; and some lived purposelessness life, therefore their potential remained buried.The worse enemy in your life is you, you are afraid of the potential that you have within you. We are responsible for the potential stored within us. We must learn to understand it and effectively use it. Success becomes our enemy as we settle for what we have, refuse to be satisfied with your last accomplishment, because potential never has a retirement plan.
One may ask, what is potential? Potential is dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success, hidden talent and capped capability. In a nutshell, all you can be but have not yet become or all you can do but have not yet done. In other words what you have done is no longer your potential or what you have successfully accomplished is no longer your potential. Potential demands that you never settle for what you have accomplished.
We should know that we are holding seeds in our own hands, the truth of the matter is we are holding a forest in our hand, why? because in every seed there is a tree, and in every tree there is a fruit or flowers with seeds in them.
What would the world have lost if you had not been born? our teens are committing suicide, I wonder who they were supposed to be and what they were suppose to do that will never know. Have we lost great leaders? Remember that failure is not the absence of success. Failure is the neglect of trying. God packaged some things in you for the good of the world, use them, do not die with God’s things.
Everything in life was created with potential and possesses the potential principle. Creation abounds with potential because the creator himself is the potential principle. When we describe GOD, we often say he is omnipotent which means that GOD is always potent. Omni means always and potent means full of power therefore omnipotent means that GOD is potentially everything, everything comes from GOD.
You may have an idea about doing something and think that idea is yours, no it is not yours, it came from GOD who is the source of everything, so whatever that we think or do is not new. We are like God,we are pregnant with many things. God will not give an idea knowing that you can not do it. You will have to plan and God will guide you and you will have to start where you are. By taking action towards your idea, you prove to God that you have faith in him. God wants us to tap his power and use it, because God made us with potential.
Do you know who you are? surely you are not a junk. There are many people who are being passed by because others do not see what is in them and God sees something in you. Do not accept opinions of others because they do not see what God sees. May be you have been told that you will amount to nothing and you have begun to believe it; and you started to compete with other people, trying to prove that you are somebody and feel like nobody, be free from that today, you do not have to be somebody, because you are somebody and stop believing what others say about you.
Your potential needs responsibility, everything starts with a desire, you must have a desire first in order to change your life. Desire means to crave for something at the expense of losing everything. Everything in life starts in the thought form, then next step is an idea, an idea is the concept of the thought, it has moved into reality, ideas are potentials.
The third level of operation is what called imagination, imagination changes an idea into a plan, imagination is a plan that is not documented, it is a visual display of thoughts and ideas. Plans are documented imagination, if you document an imagination, you have developed a plan of action. If you have not documented your plan for the next five years, you do not know what is going in your life. If there is no vision in front of you to pull you on, you will be dragged back to the path you know well. Progress requires a plan of action, ideas must be put down if they are to influence the way we live.
What happened to real you? when a man puts a limit on what he can be, he has put a limit on what he will be. Remember when you were a child, you used to dream big dreams and sharing your ideas with your friends. But as you grow older, you start to doubt yourself and negativity takes over your life, and stopped dreaming and settle for less. You tell yourself that you are worthless, you do not deserve the best in your life or you were not meant to be rich because rich people are always mean. You always have negative thoughts and you believe in the impossibility, now you should know that Satan is there to destroy you, so come closer to God and seek his kingdom first.
Remember that there is no retirement in the bible, there are times when we get tired of our jobs, in fact, we get so tired that we look for retirement, God does not think like that. The thing God thinks is rest, why? because God knows you have eternity to go just like he does. The wealth of your potential is so rich, it requires an eternal life to bring it out.
