Uncovering your potentials:
The wealthiest spot on this planet is not the oil fields of Iraq or Saudi Arabia. Neither is it the gold and diamond mines of South Africa, the uranium mines of the Soviet Union, or the silver mines of Africa. Though it may surprise you, the richest deposit on our planet lie just a few blocks from your house. They rest in your local cemetery or graveyard. Buried beneath the soil within the walls of those scared grounds are dreams that never came to pass, songs that were never sung, books that were never written, paintings that never filled a canvas, ideas that were never shared, visions that never became reality, inventions that were never designed, plans that were never fulfilled. Our graveyards are filled with potential that remained potential. What a tragedy!
Only a minute percentage of the five billion people on this planet will experience a significant portion of their true potential. Are you a candidate for contributing to the wealth of the cemetery? Ask yourself the following questions;
. Who am I ?
. Why am I here?
. How much potential do I have?
. What am I capable of doing?
. By what criteria should I measure my ability?
. Who sets the standards?
. By what process can I maximize my ability?
. What are my limitations?
One of the greatest tragedy is to watch potentials die. Most of us have no idea of how much potentials we possess. Everything in life was created with potential and possesses the potential principle. In every seed there is a tree…..in every bird a flock……in every fish a school…….. in every sheep a flock……..in every cow a herd……..in every boy a man……..in every girl a woman……..in every nation a generation.
We are responsible for the potentials stored inside us, we must learn to understand it and effectively use it.
