One of the biggest tragedies facing humanity is the vast majority of people will never come anywhere near achieving what they are capable of becoming. This has been increasingly weighing on me. I've spent over a decade helping individuals heal and recover from some of the worst things you can imagine.
These experiences have also shown me the capacity of human potential and resilience. Simultaneously, I have worked with countless high performing individuals helping them break through the blocks that were holding them back from a higher level of success.
Why do some achieve their potential and not others?
This last year, there has been a gnawing inside of me to understand the deeper reasons why the mass of humanity does not attain to their full potential. Think for a moment if I erased Albert Einstein, Maya Angelou, Steve Jobs, Michael Jordan, Oprah Winfrey, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela from history. Feel the vacuum left behind. Every year, on a global scale, this is happening by the millions.
The loss of what the world could be if we all achieved our maximum potential is immense. I am not naive enough to believe I can change this myself. However, I will discover as many answers as possible to the question of why most people do not achieve their potential. Furthermore, I will help as many as I can obtain all they are capable of becoming. Ask yourself today, what are the things that stand in the way of unlocking your ultimate capacity?
We each have a gift to share with the world
I believe each of us has a gift we have been given to share with the world. It is about giving. Your gift will be tied to your passion. Your passion will give you the hunger and drive to manifest your contribution to the world. These are the steps: identify your gift and unique intelligence; align it with love and service to others; overcome the blocks that stand in your way; keep at it until you succeed.
I am in this process myself and have committed to helping as many as I can with theirs. I will freely share all the lessons I learn along the way. Make the effort to discover who you truly are, find your passion, and always believe you are capable of more.
