Embrace your Potential
“Don’t miss your potential because you can’t escape your past”. – Nicholas Sullivan
What does that mean?
Sometimes we get so comfortable in where we are, who we are with, and what we do that we can easily miss out on being the best version of ourselves.
If we keep spending time with the same people, if we keep working the same jobs, if we keep eating the same things, if we keep dating the same type of people, if we keep telling ourselves “this is just how it is”, “this is what I deserve”, or “this is how it’s always going to be”, then we are severely limiting ourselves.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
If it didn’t help you in the past, why continue to entertain it?
If you want different, you have to move different.
If you want to change who you are, you have to do away with who you were.
Complacency and comfortability are dangerous; we can become so use to being treated horribly, accepting abuse, falling back into bad habits over and over, and hanging around bad influences that we end up believing that is all we are worth.
You have the ability to make new, better decisions starting today. Pick better friends, hang out at different places, and break off relationships that chain you to your past.
It is time to start working on achieving your God-given potential.
