No matter what innate talents you were born with, what family you were born into, the money you have made or lost, or the times of difficulty or lucky breaks, nothing will get you to where you want to be better than understanding your full potential.
It’s the all-encompassing factor in every success story. The poor man gets rich story, or the how I changed the world with my bare hands tale. These all come from one important factor, those people who have succeeded are the ones who have learnt how to tap into something innate inside of them, and to live and breathe their dreams.
Each one of us has a unique potential lying innate inside of us. It’s a mad mix of our genetics, our environment, the way our body has been designed and the talents we were born with. Each one of us has something different, some gift to impart to this world
Of course, the first step is discovering just what that is. For some this is an instinctive process, while for others, it’s a struggle to identify. That can be for a range of reasons. We often have an instinctive idea of what we want to do as young children. However, this is often torn from us or pushed down by parental disapproval or societal expectations that don’t match our own natural talents. However, when we do find our unique potential and start living our life through it, life changes. We wake up every morning raring to go. We feel energized, fulfilled and happy. Everything just seems to fall into place, while people around us wonder how we suddenly became so lucky. It’s not luck it is simply that we have started living in alignment with our passion our gifts our potential.
The most common trap is fear. I’ve never met a 20-year-old or a 50-year-old who says, “I’ve never had a single passion, dream, hope or desire.” We all have them, but a lot of us give in to fear as soon as we get close to them. The reason is that fear only gets loud when we do things that matter. Fear never bothers us if we remain safe, but the second we dare to step up to the plate, to strive to be more, fear awakens.
We all have basic needs for water, food, and shelter. If these needs are not met, then all our focus will be on fulfilling these ‘primal needs’ at the expense of our potential in other areas. We also have emotional needs that may be less easy for us to identify. Every one alive has the need for human interaction, feelings of security, a sense of connection to community, a need to feel intimate with at least one other person, needs to feel interested and stimulated by life, and many others.
If we are chronically frightened and don’t feel safe, or are constantly trying to get enough attention because our social life is off-balance, then energy we could be using for fulfilling our potential will have to be diverted (consciously or unconsciously) toward meeting these basic emotional needs. It is possible to waste a whole lifetime in the search to satisfy one or more primal emotional need at the expense of finding and following our potential / our purpose / our dreams.
Our task at 33 Days to Happy is to help you get what you need in terms of emotional fulfillment in order to free up space to focus elsewhere. Your whole life shouldn’t merely be a search for emotional security or excitement or intimacy. These needs should be met so that you don’t have to think about them all the time. And of course, realizing some of your potential will meet some emotional needs, as well.
People talk about ‘reaching their potential’, but how many people tell you they have actually reached their potential? “Hi, my name’s Bob. I’ve reached my full potential. That’s it, I’m done now!” Remember, all apparent fulfillment of potential is a step, not an ultimate destination. We are always learning, always developing, and always (if we are wise) working to realize our potential.
As a life coach my job regarding potential is to help you examine the question, “Am I reaching my potential?” Which is not the same as asking, “How do I rise to the top?” or “How can I be successful in my career?” Rather, it’s about taking a very personal look at how you define success in your heart of hearts and then finding your path to get there.
We will look at all areas of your life discover which areas are taking up too much of your energy and help balance things out. We will set priorities and assist you in finding what really rocks your boat. And then we will help you set a path to living the life you choose.
Too many people feel like victims in their lives and careers, when in fact they have a substantial degree of control. Seizing control requires you to take a fresh look at your behaviour in all parts of your life and then be willing to make changes.
