Potential refers to the capability of
development into actuality. It means implicit; possible; possibility; prospect,
etc. It applies to a power or quality that has not yet come forth but may
emerge and develop. Greatness is the quality or state of being great, as in
size, skill, achievement, or power. I’ve been inspired to write on this because
if you can fully grasp this, success will chase you all your life. We all were
born with the potential for greatness. Except one has it, they cannot live on
this earth! The thoughts we are to explore through this post concern why in
spite of the fact that we all have it, majority of the people are not able to
Network Marketing companies often ignite
this potential in us. Those who show us opportunity plans always seem to be
telling us we can do it. Indeed, we do believe them for that moment. It’s known
that most people quit in network marketing before they begin. This is so
because after they have believed that they can as they are shown the
opportunity, they immediately run to the wolves to share how the feel.
Mercilessly, these wolves strip this “I can” attitude off these people. Even
when they have been discouraged, some of these people go on to get started to
attain that greatness. Others join but don’t go on to attain that greatness.
BORN WITH IT
They don’t know what they have. Once we
don’t understand what we have before us, we are bound to trample on it. We’ll
cast out diamonds for common stones. You were born with the potential for
greatness. You are reading this with eyes you were freely given. You are
applying your mind. You were a whole complete package right from the start. The
seed of greatness has always been in you. You must know for yourself that you
got this. You can. You will! Network Marketing opportunities are opportunities
with the potential to bring forth this greatness. From today onwards, know that
you were born with it in you.
THROW OUT UNBELIEF
Resist unbelief. Winners are an indicator
that anything is possible if we put our heart and mind in the task. The future
belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. The unbelief here
is two-fold i.e. in yourself and in the vehicle. The potential many have is
frustrated by unbelief either in themselves, or in the vehicle they are using
to attain these dreams. You must know that your company will take you there.
For this to work out, don’t miss a single update or event of your company. As
for yourself, never take a break from personal development. Do it and do it
until you do it.
PAIN IS WHAT YOU CHOOSE IT TO BE
However, one may believe in themselves, and
in the company they work with, but will still not explore their potential to
the maximum. Fear of failure tends to creep in. This is a result of past
failures. The reason we often fear failure is because it was accompanied with
pain in our past. It’s this pain we are actually running away from. Every time
sluggishness comes in, we are simply finding escape from the pain associated
with the pain. Well, what if pain was neither bad or good? What if it is
something that we can choose to be good or bad? What if it’s up to us to choose
if it’s good or bad? Embrace the pain of discipline today. Do it anyway!
Therefore, to really exhibit this potential,
we’ve got to do something. Nothing grows if it’s not worked on. Except we
exercise, we can’t grow our potential. Hugely, the reason why most people don’t
show this potential is that they don’t use it at all. We talked of potential as
capability of development into actuality. Only those who make bold steps with
what they have today will explore it. Get into the habit of doing because life
is a journey.
There is a common expression that this
world is not our home. In other words, in whatever we do, we shouldn’t think of
today or here alone. The potential we have from our birth is for us to be able
to get through this journey towards our destination. Continuously, we should be
thinking of movement. Accomplishments towards that destination should dominate
our thoughts. The potential you were born with is for you to reach your life
goals. It must be applied. You must do something everyday with it. As a network
marketer, do something each day with the opportunity you are blessed with. To
exhibit it, you must use it.
