Potential...such an interesting word.
It can stop you in your tracks making you wonder, “Have I fulfilled my potential?” Or it can stop you in horror when you recognize you’ve fulfilled someone else’s vision of your potential yet you feel completely empty and lost.
How do you recognize your potential? It is that dream that fills your heart, that desire that calls your soul forward. This is the deal with those dreams and desires...they are your soul’s way of calling you forward towards your heaven on earth. You can listen to them and move forward towards experiencing complete fulfillment OR you can choose to not listen and live a life that has you constantly feeling like something is missing. And it is.
We are each born with the potential to become anything we want to be in this world. But there are a few things that get in the way of that happening…
The first problem is when you are born to parents who have a clear vision for who they want you to be. It doesn’t really matter who you came here to be. All that matters to them is that you follow the path that they set you on. The problem with this is that you can’t fulfill someone else’s potential for them, and that’s exactly what these parents are trying to do- have you live the life they wish they had chosen for themselves. But that is not your job. Your job is to live the life you wish for yourself to the fullest!
The second problem can arise when you are multi-talented and other people tell you what you “should” be doing. “Oh my goodness! You are so good with numbers! You should be an accountant!” And you think to yourself, yeah they are right. I am really good with numbers. Maybe an accountant is what I should be. And you cast away your hopes and dreams of being an actor and bringing the words of famous playwrights to life and helping the audiences feel the emotional depth of the characters you would play. But your job is not to do what you are good at, it is to do what you LOVE!
A third problem is when you let your fear become bigger than your purpose. In other words, playing it safe becomes your priority over fulfilling your potential. This happens so often. Your heart has always called you towards your soulmate yet over and over again you end up with partners that seem to be intent on ripping out your heart! You have been heartbroken, devastated, and have even begun to question if perhaps you are unlovable. And so you have begun to build walls around your heart to keep the pain away...but that very same process is keeping love out. But your job is not to shrink away from what scares you but to feel the fear and do it anyway!
Your spirit is simply seeking to fulfill its highest potential as YOU...the incredibly unique and wondrous being that only you can be. Are you fulfilling that potential…?
