I am still discovering my potential. It is only when I STEP OUT and do the things I have never done before that I get really amazed that I did it! Where was that potential Hiding? At times we can be our own enemy by negative self-talking and doubting.
Well I always say there is no harm in trying. I thought I knew my self but lately I have been blown away by the things I have been able to achieve outside my area of expertise.
Really where was that hiding? This really challenges me and scares me at the same time when I think about what I would have missed out on had I not stepped out. I mentioned a colleague who once told me that she knew my capabilities. According to this colleague the new project I had in mind was beyond my capabilities. I did not respond to this because at the end of the day it is her opinion but it doesn’t determine whether I can or can’t. See Here
So I always remember this colleagues words and it makes me wonder how she had the confidence to say she knew my capabilities that well when I do not even fully know them myself. Every project that I work on is a complete adventure for me, approached with one mindset “I can do this”.
So it is very important to be mindfully of the words that come out of our mouth to make sure we do not become a dream killer to other people. I have also noticed with kids how gullible they are, they just believe everything they are told. My heart is to protect these little ones from dream killers
I always visualize 2 bags in front of me. One has “Full Potential” the other has “utilised potential”. I want to make sure that these 2 bags are the same size and not to have the utilised potential being way smaller that the full potential.
