What I believe our goal should be is to start living your life on purpose. Another meaning would be living your potential. Your Passion your Purpose in life. Of all the great pursuits in life, to me this is the most important. Robert Louis Stevenson said it more than a hundred years ago: “To become what we are capable of becoming is the only end in life.” But what is potential? Webster’s dictionary defines potential as possible, capable of being or becoming or a latent excellence or ability that may or may not be developed. So potential then is what you can become. It is the best possible version of yourself. The first challenge, I believe, to living our potential—is realizing the greatness that is dormant inside of each of us. Thomas Edison said, “If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” Dale Carnegie also taught, “We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do.” Why don’t we then? I think what stops most of us is fear. We are actually afraid of our greater potential. 19th century philosopher Soren Kierkegaard said it this way, “There is nothing of which every man is so afraid as getting to know how enormously much he is capable of doing and becoming.” We are born to make manifest the glory of our highest potential that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in all of us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Nelson Mandela echoes this when he says, “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” It is said that the greatest waste in the world is the difference between what we are and what we are capable of becoming. But denying your potential isn’t just sad, it’s unhealthy. In fact, psychologists tell us nothing creates internal stress and trauma more than when what you are doing on the outside (your actions and behaviors) is incongruent with your potential on the inside. Abraham Maslow warns, “If you plan on being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.” So where do you start? You start by realizing your greatness! You don’t know how great you can be! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!” The late great Jim Rohn said, that “The big challenge of life is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize your human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.” Everyone of you must dedicate yourselves to expanding your belief about what’s possible for you. I want you to ask yourself the question: What would you do if you could start living your life differently from this moment on. What would you keep the same and what would you change. Believe it or not you can create the life that you want on purpose. {How can you do this} First you must start with a {vision} then have the {desire} and develop the {passion} for the thing you want to do.
