We have the potential to be great. But our potential doesn’t matter if we don’t live up to it.
I was reminded last week that living up to my potential isn’t just a matter of doing it for myself… but for those around me who I can be of service and help to.
It’s easy to hide from ourselves sometimes, thinking that we’re the only ones affected if we don’t step out and live loud.
But it affects more than just me and more than just you. There’s someone waiting for us to step up, be there, and reach out with help.
That change in perspective can make a big change in what we’re willing to do to live up to our potential. Why?
Our prayers for others flow more easily than those for ourselves. This shows we are made to live by charity. ~C.S.Lewis
So go be great. If doing it for yourself is hard, then do it for those around you who are waiting on you.
