I can’t think of a more critical time in the history of this country that would require a serious evaluation of human potential. The crisis and chaos we’re facing today can only be met and managed if each and every one of us will strive to reach the potential we’ve been blessed with.
There are a number of reasons that may cause us to fall short of our dreams, ambitions, and full potential:
- Low Self-Esteem
- Lack of Confidence
- Lack of Opportunity
The promising aspect of each of the barriers listed above, as well as any others you can conceive, is that each can be overcome with the proper resources, determination, and strategy. We also boast more resources today than ever before. It simply requires a focused search, proper utilization, and painstaking execution.
One of the most powerful resources available to us today is simply another person or persons. It may be a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker, teacher/professor, religious leader, coach or mentor. Lessons can be learned from a variety of sources so never underestimate the potential of those in your life at the moment.
As we look back over our lives, I’m sure we can all recognize those who may have provided a turning point for us at one time or another. In this short video, watch how a high school football coach enlightens one of his players to his true potential by blindfolding him! Notice how fellow teammates and even other members of the coaching staff learn from this unique exercise!
Enjoy, contemplate, and please pass it on to others! Now go reach your full potential!
