We all have heard the statement “This guy has a lot of potential,” and it’s been mentioned quite a bit with RMS lately. As all of you know, we have a lot of brand new representatives starting out with us and as we begin to train them, very often that statement comes up.
The reality is that everyone has some sort of potential. All of you have potential to do great things but as we all know, just having potential will not give us great success. Unfortunately, there are many stories of people that are filled with great potential but they never come close to reaching the levels they should.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. How does a person maximize their full potential? That certainly is a great question. Those of you who know me well, know that I have a passion for helping people achieve their dreams.
There are several factors that have to come into place in order for someone to maximize their full potential. The first thing is that they have to BELIEVE they can achieve great success. If you believe it and can conceive it, then you can achieve it. The second thing is to simply DECIDE to do what it takes to become successful. It all boils down to simply making the decision. Once the decision is made, the third step is to COMMIT. When you make a 100% commitment, you never look back. There are no more excuses. You are going to be successful no matter what. You will persist until you succeed.
I believe 100% that success breeds success. If you want to be at a high-level, it’s very important to surround yourself with the winners. The reality is that you are who you associate with. Take a look at your inner circle. Who are you hanging out with? Are they in life where you want to be? Are they on a success journey? Do they encourage you and lift you up or are they bringing you down? I cannot express enough how important it is that if you want to maximize your full potential, you must surround yourself with others that are reaching theirs.
I have found that in life we are going to have one of these two pains—the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. In order to have great success, it’s going to take discipline. There is pain that goes with that but it’s a pain that is truly worth it. A person who does not reach or maximize their full potential, unfortunately, will have to deal with the pain of regret.
How about you? Are you ready to maximize your full potential? Are you ready to use your God-given talents? Now is your time. Believe, decide, commit, and surround yourself with people that are in life where you want to be. I believe in you and I’m rooting for you. You can do this.
Blessings and success.
