Realize Your Potential Today!

After having an in depth conversation with a few friends a week ago I realized that I had more potential than I could imagine. It's funny as you go about life and accomplish certain things you tend to forget how blessed you truly are. Never once did I think that I could not be good at something. But never did I think that I could possibly waste a few blessings along the way.

My friends and I spoke about what happens to a person when he or she gets bored. Bored with life, school, marriage, jobs, etc. It seems as we looked back and think about things that were new and dear to us we might have taken for granted. Have you ever been so good at something that you never thought to challenge yourself to further greatness? Have you missed the opportunity to put some spark into your relationship or marriage? Too smart to attempt to challenge yourself that you just waited for the rest of the class to catch up while you got distracted by things that did not need your attention? How much further would we be in life had we only stuck to something and challenged our self to become even better?

We cannot change the past. Who we are today is because what we did yesterday but we can strive to be even better tomorrow. With technology much further advanced than the past you can dream bigger than ever. There are role models and idols that are doing what some of us wish we had the confidence to do or just the discipline to apply ourselves. Make a change today! Pick up on the passion that you once had and see where it can take you. If that is too late then encourage our young people to do so. Let them know they can do anything they so desire if they put their minds to it. However, help them to understand that it will take faith, patience and trust to accomplish these things. It may come easy it may come more difficult than others but always challenge yourself to become better than you were the day before.
