Your own best potential

It’s easy to sit back and let yourself be captivated by the follies of others. But you’re capable of so much more.

The more difficult option is to figure out what you care about and get yourself deeply involved in it. That’s also a much more fulfilling option.

Your life has great and unique value. Can you feel, somewhere inside, the obligation to be true to your own best potential?

There’s never any reason to beat yourself up for falling short of perfection. Yet you can always encourage yourself to be more purposeful, authentic, and engaged in life.

With each choice that confronts you, consider this question. What is the path that enables you to more fully fulfill your potential?

You can choose that path a little more often, a lot more often, perhaps even most of the time. Imagine what that could do, and then work to live the reality of what you imagine.
