You already have the potential to be great. You don't need to be born with special talents or abilities. You just need to tap into the potential that you already have, take the risk to grow and discover your greatness. The biggest obstacle to greatness is fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of the unknown. These are the things that hold us back from achieving our full potential. The only way to overcome fear is to face it. The more you face your fears, the less power they will have over you. Take the opportunities in front of you to step out of your comfort zone and into the learning and growing zone. You will experience failure, disappointment, and frustration…this is called growth. It is all a part of the process of you finding your greatness.
You need to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve. What do you want to be great at? What are your goals? Once you have a clear vision, you can start taking steps to make it a reality. You have to see it in order to be it. You need to set specific goals. Don't just say you want to be great. What does that mean to you? How will you measure your success? You need to take action. Don't just sit around and dream about being great, take action every day to move closer to your goals. These steps will carry you closer, day by day, to your potential best self. You need to be persistent. Don’t give up. There will be setbacks along the way. Keep taking action, and eventually, you will see progress towards your goals.
You need to be willing to learn and grow. Have and open mind, a willingness to listen, and develop a growth mindset. The world is constantly changing, and if you want to stay ahead of the curve, you need to be willing to learn and grow. You need to be surrounded by positive people and by people who show support for your journey. People who will hold you accountable and be honest with you in your journey. The people you spend time with have a big impact on your success, so surround yourself with positive people who believe in you and support your goals. You need to celebrate your successes. When you achieve a goal, take the time to reflect, enjoy, and celebrate your success. The big things happen when many small things happen…the small things allow these big things to occur. Keep going, keep growing daily...you are going to be great.
