The Mystery of Potential

How many times have you stood on the shore of a lake or the sea and wondered about the mysteries of its depths? The only way to dispel the mysteries is to jump in and get fully immersed in the particular body of water.

Once immersed there’s a whole different perspective. You’re not looking down at the surface and seeing only your reflection and not what’s below. You’re looking in a wide new world. It envelopes you such that you become a part of the total experience, of the new environment. The mysteries begin to dissipate because you can see what’s going on all around you and you can learn and adapt accordingly. The potential of all before you has a greater chance of being realized, as a result.

Life is exactly the same. You can choose to stand on the shore of life and wonder about the potential of its mysteries. Or, you can jump in with both feet…body…and soul and become fully immersed in pushing the mysteries aside and realizing your life’s true potential.

The reaching of your potential is never realized through your reflection in a mirror or on the surface of a body of water. It’s realized through believing in the power of the person in the reflection and then jumping into your life with an attitude of action. The wonder of realizing your potential in life is no more mysterious than that!
