Just Do It

Mb-text_1 If you want more out of life, discover your inherent potential. Within this writing are hidden tips on how to discover your potential, which will allow you to make a dent in the universe. If you find them, they will make you wise; overlook them, and you may remain unproductive. Thomas Edison’s teachers told him he was “too stupid to learn anything.” However, Edison went on to hold more than one thousand patents and invented some world-changing devices, like the phonograph, practical electrical lamp, and a movie camera.

People who truly succeed in life are those who don’t just do their best, they just do it! Your best efforts will never secure your success. It takes more than effort, it takes passion.

Wasted talent and ability is the humiliation of humanity. The worst thing a person can do is have such great potential but so little confidence. The lack of confidence is a by-product of how a person sees him or herself, especially during times of extreme pressure, frequent letdowns, and difficulty. Pressure in life exposes the weaknesses in the armor, which causes cracks and breakages when people wear the face of pretending to appear strong. It is extremely easy to hide behind the thin paper veneer of words, but words without history are simply chatter without power.

What is a person’s invaluable commodity? What makes a person great and their personality standout? Is it because he or she is funny or because they are smart? I would love to say these are important qualities of a self-assured person, but this is not usually the case. Many smart and funny people are undisciplined and irresponsible when it comes to performing on the grand stage of life. Life often produces challenges which reveal our ability or inability to handle timidity. What is actually absent from the majority of people with great potential, is personal leadership or mentorship. Avoiding a person who can possibly help channel your strengths and diminish your weaknesses, is a waste of your commodity.

Believing that simple effort is effective in accomplishing a person’s goals, may reveal that you are the kind of person who usually takes short routes which lead to nowhere. Millions never reach their full potential because they choose not to maintain their posture of discipline. While a few people do realize their dreams, the young and the goalless have reclined in the comfort of their frail attempt at realizing theirs.

In other words, they liquidate or reduce their God-given ability to weak efforts that are only produced from feeble attempts. Potential is the intrinsic ability one might have, which for whatever reason, they have not come to realize. I am convinced that most of us are content with just trying to live better lives, instead of living better lives.

Force yourself to establish habits that are conducive for you to produce the life or business you want. To reach your full potential or to get close to fulfilling it, you must unlearn many of your bad and unproductive habits. Your chief deterrent, inhibitor, or restraint, is the lack of passion—I mean having a deep fervor to not become a narrator of your dream, but the architect of it. Potential is the full intrinsic capacity which constantly expands a person’s ability to do more than what they may think they are capable of.

Let’s figure out other reasons why these talented people spend their wheels and end up nowhere. Maybe, just maybe, we can awaken the giant within, and cause these giants to rise. Most people have been tutored and motivated to give their best efforts in school, sports, and other activities. However, many of us lack the encouragement that we are more than capable of consummating any goal or task. Therefore, our ability is not limited, but our knowledge is.

Effort points to trying your best to do something even though you don’t reach your full capacity. Humanly, we rest on this premise of effort, only to secure the feeling that we gave it our best shot. Unfortunately, your best shot usually proves to be inadequate for the task. People who do not realize their potential will be satisfied with their efforts and promote their efforts over their potential.

The people who usually claim they are never able to get over the hump, are the ones who are simply afraid to push themselves to step over the hump and experience what they can really do. In other words, the time, energy, and resources needed to push hard to realize or to reach their goals, is too much of a price to pay. They want others to pay the price, but they want to collect the dividends.

Oftentimes, what hinders many potentially great and powerful individuals, are their predetermined limitations. The reason for this dominance of fear, is taught restrictions. Whether these restrictions were learned voluntarily or involuntarily does not matter because regardless, they are very real. Efforts are learned limits, while potential is unlimited.

Never ever settle for getting close, while never finishing. I fully believe potential can only be realized if God is placed in the equation. When you accept God’s divine image in your life, you will never settle for reaching a goal line when you know winning requires that you cross over it.

The Power of Reach

reaching-200Where would you like to go? …Seriously!

What would you like to do? …No, really!

How much money would you like to make? …No kidding!

There is an element of your human physiology that is hidden deep within the crevasses of your capacity to think; to intellectually reason, to envision, and dream that cannot be touched with hands. And yet, it has the ability to reach far beyond all of your physical capabilities. It is the part of our limited human make-up, which only seems to hide our spiritual essence and creativeness. In fact, it is more real than the tangible or visible. It’s your imagination.


Your imagination is just as much a part of your thought process as the brain in your skull. It is a major key to success. It is the treasure of your psyche and consciousness that can shift you from mental slavery to unlimited mental freedom. Somewhere along the route of growing up, many of us were influenced to turn our thoughts to academics — squelching imagination to follow a more linear route to achievement. Imagination isn’t limited to inventors, artists or performing artists. All of us have this powerful creative ability stored in the fibers of our imaginations. Your imagination is the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images, or concepts of external objects not present to the senses. It is unequivocally the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.

Connecting imagination and creativity causes innovation to produce a unique twist to things already manufactured, to expand its potential, and also to cleverly come up with original ideas that have not been thought of. There are many things yet undiscovered only because imagination has not been unleashed to its full possibilities. Learn to listen not just with your ears, but with your entire being. People rarely ever go where they have not already been in their mind. The power of the imagination to reach further than you can go and do greater things you are capable of, will only happen as you feed your mind with positive capabilities.

There are so many factors that are used by individuals to be excuses for why they can’t dream, invent, or recreate. Fear, discouragement, negative talk, limited thinking, unbelief, and self-pity are all weapons that people turn on themselves to impede their own ability to appropriately use their imaginations. Our imagination enables us to break free from the slavery of limits and from the necessity to conform to natural forces.

Although the imagination has some limitations because it cannot control people and/or all circumstances, it is still quite powerful. The human race, absent of the imagination would not have been able to make the great leaps that it has over the last one hundred years; from sending a probe to Mars and landing it, to inventing 3D Copy Machines, open heart surgery…and so much more.. This realization further reinforces the belief that humans are the only species with enhanced imagination, as no other species has had similar advances.

The power of the imagination is one of the components given to humanity to mentally create what one might desire, so they can reach and stretch out there, into the void of space…by faith, to pull that created image into reality. The power of imagination impacts our lives in a multiplicity of ways. Imagination is specifically a human gift. To imagine is to simply have images in your head progressing in a sequence that is perhaps from memory or an unknown future. It can be us merely making out what we want to happen in our own future.

Release your imagination. Create your future world. You have the resource to do it, so why not go for it. Reach! Stretch! Make contact with what’s out there in your created world. Don’t be concerned about the “how,” and don’t make excuses for the lack of understanding about the why, because you do indeed possess imagination. Imagination doesn’t have to be understood, just believed. If you are not having the kind of success you want in your life, your imagination is in all probability at work with fear, doubt, anxiety and limited beliefs.

Through your imagination you learn to manage your environment. Your life is adorned with the thoughts in your head. Imagine dressing in your ideal way and watch how you will subconsciously gain a strength and tenacity to lose weight so you will look the way you imagine yourself to be. Remember, a star is born when a person realizes their interior strength, talent, and ability and uses them to benefit humanity.
