– Winston Churchill
Unleashing our Potential
Unleashing our potential means working on our strengths to reach big goals and get where we want.
The first step to take is to focus on ourselves, on the present, and on small daily objectives. That is, identify our best skills and strengths we can use to reach our short-term goals in order to reach bigger achievements.
The rest is distraction and waste of energy. Mistakes like comparing ourselves with others are completely useless, misleading and time-wasting.
Similarly, long-term plans, despite being a good source of motivation, could poison our personal productivity if we spend too much time thinking about them: they take our mind off our present.
Don’t give up now!
“Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise.”
– Frank Ocean.
If you don’t see results immediately, it doesn’t mean you won’t see results in the future. Hard work pays off sooner or later. So, if it seems like nothing is happening, don’t panic, be patient, and expect even bigger achievements later.
Stick to the 3Ps rule
The key to a better life, full of attainments and satisfaction, is what I call the 3Ps factor. This is the combination of patience, perseverance and
If you think carefully about it, we all have these three elements, but we seldom use them together, and the majority of us underestimate and don’t cultivate them.
We all have strengths, and if we “water” them with patience and perseverance, we can reach almost anything.
We should always focus on this idea, every single day, especially when we’re having a hard time dealing with an obstacle, because it gives us the strength that we need.
In order to keep ourselves on the right path, we should always bear in mind the 3Ps principle.
So, it’s time for you to focus on your priorities, on your strengths and on how you can get the best out of your life, giving the best of yourself. Feel free to leave a comment and to share your opinion or experience.
Be patient, don’t stop, enjoy the journey.
