No matter what innate talents you were born with …
No matter what family you were born into, the money you have made or lost, or the times of difficulty or lucky breaks, nothing will get you to where you want to be better than understanding the true power of your full potential.
It’s the breaking factor in every successful story.
The popular poor man gets lucky story, or the how I changed the world with my bare hands tale comes from one important factor.
The people who succeed are the people who learn how to tap into something innate inside them, and live and breathe their dreams.
Each one of us has potential lying innate inside of us. The brilliant part is each one of us has a potential that is uniquely ours. Its a mad mix of our genetics, our environment, the way our body has been designed and the talents we were born with. Each one of us has something different, some gift t impart to this world
Of course, the first step is discovering just what that is. For some this is an instinctive process, often helped by a watchful parent or teacher that spotted something in us from an early age and called it into being.
For others, it’s a struggle to identify. That can be for a range of reasons. We often have an instinct inkling of what we want to do as young children. This can be torn from us or pushed down by parental disapproval or expectations that don’t match our own natural talents. For instance you may have been created as a creative person who loves to put colours and designs together, but come from a long line of successful accountants and business owners. There may be an expectation that you’ll be working in business as you become an adult.
Environment can also play a part. We often learn about what we are good at through trying new things. If you lived in an area where there weren’t a lot of options, or you didn’t have a lot of money to pay for classes or for travel, then you may have not experienced the things you are naturally good at
Sometimes our very ambition, mixed with false belief can get in the way. Michael was a talented and creative designer who loved to put concepts together. However he was raised in a poor family and had experienced that embarrassing feeling of frequently being the only kid in his class without cool shoes, or the latest gadget. While he loved design he felt it couldn’t make him money so he went for more traditional methods such as finance and accounting. No matter how hard he stuck at it he found himself stressed, unhappy and even worse, and poor as he couldn’t seem to climb up the ladder to success.
Finally in desperation Michael started to do some designing for friends on the side just to keep himself sane. At first it was a free thing, but as his designs were shown to others, people started to ask to pay him. He discovered that you could actually be doing something you loved AND get paid for it. He just wishes he’s known that a lot earlier.
