#selflhelp #potential #personalgrowth #personaldevelopment — I got a very interesting question from an audience member during the question and answer part of my motivational talk last night in Stouffville (which by the way was a great audience and venue).
One gentleman asked how he can tell if he maximizes his personal potential. He asked this in response to a section of my talk where I talk about how it would be such a shame if people did not reach their highest personal potentials during their lifetimes because they failed to plan for success.
My response was that one way to possible tell if you are reaching your maximum potential is if you wake up on Monday mornings just dreading to have to go to work, then in many ways, you are not maximizing your personal potential. In this day and age, there’s no reason why you have to continue to do things in your life that you hate, especially when it comes to your career.
One way to maximize your personal potential is to to the things that you love and are passionate about as well as in the environments that you like. So if there is something wrong about your working hours, then in a way, you are not reaching your potential.
I see a big connection between personal potential and what one is passionate about. If one is doing everything he or she is passionate about in life, then one will feel that personal potential is being maximized which in turn brings satisfaction and happiness.
That’s my take on it of course. Furthermore, the actual definition of what maximum potential is will be different for each individual but passion will definitely still be a direct connection.
