Reaching Your Potentiality
Reaching Your Potentiality
What gets in the way of You Reaching your Potentiality?
Many of us know what we want in our life, but stumble over perceived road blocks and negative beliefs which can get in the way of us reaching our real potential.
A road block is really a self-imposed obstacle that you set yourself. Yes, I know we would like to blame other people or use them as our excuse but if we get totally honest with ourselves, our road blocks are in our own mind. They are the lies we choose to believe about ourselves.
Isn’t it funny that as we get older, these roadblocks seem to increase in size? As children, we don’t take much notice of these roadblocks but as an adult, it is really easy to get increasingly conditioned by society to play it safe, avoid taking a risk and take the safe option down the well-trodden path.
However, when we look at those who are successful, they are the ones who decide to take a risk and move their life in a new and fresh direction. They didn’t allow their road blocks to hold them back.
There is a reason why everyone who is average does average things. The people who aren’t average basically do non-average things!
Don’t Give Up!! You have Potential
Let’s get clear on this; any self-limiting beliefs that restrict your potential are just obstacles you set yourself. Many of us choose to live our life according to those beliefs even if they were formed 20,30 or 60 years ago! We think of them as huge big blocks that prevent us from living the life we really want and we often believe that we can’t do anything to change them. But how about if we took some time to look into the distorted thoughts or lies that these road blocks really are? How would it be if we decided that we can overcome these blocks and shrink them in size? What if we decided to look upon them purely as a self-imposed limitation or just an old story that we keep telling ourselves? Wouldn’t it be nice if we just decided to change that story and give it a new ending? What if we replaced fear with faith?
Allow your Potentiality to Break Through
When a baby first learns to crawl and walk, they don’t limit themselves, they just keep on trying to get the result they want – and in the end, they succeed! As an adult, when we first learn to drive the concept of learning what to do at the right time can be daunting. However, you don’t just give up after the first lesson and the more we practise the more belief we have that we can do it. The key is not to allow your limitations to hold you back from even starting something or giving something new a try – the truth is that once you try something new, your belief will start to grow.
Don’t Doubt your Potential
Self-doubt is often behind our roadblocks. We doubt we can do it and we feel fearful. Please know this is totally normal and whenever you try something new or aim to break a new habit you are always going to have some type of fear. The key is to work on your mindset. Think differently. Those who have reached their greatest potential have often been the most prolific. They aren’t afraid to step outside of the norm and would probably do anything just to avoid that well-trodden path.
Keep an open mind
Keeping an open mind will affect your potential. We can miss so many opportunities because we are stuck on an old way of thinking or we don’t want to take a risk. Instead of immediately thinking that you can’t do something – question that thought pattern. Is the perceived fear real? What really is the worst that could happen?
Having an open mind really is key when reaching your potential, because it gives you the willingness to take risks. We’ll never be the best we can be by playing it safe. As the saying goes: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always be where you’ve always been.”
