Live Up to your Potential

Good day everyone. Today's post will be a post about motivational quotes. I was listening to a speech, when the speaker quoted the famous Harvard professer William James

"Compared to what we ought to be, we are only half awake. We are making use of only a small part of our physical and mental resources." --- William James

The human individual, YOU, possess a potential, far greater than what you exhibit on a daily basis. This potential is inside each and everyone of us.

I like the idea of everyone of us having a great amount of potential. It provides the motivation knowing that you can still improve, can still get better. And the only way you can improve, is practice.

What does Tiger Woods, Warren Buffett, have in common besides being ultra successful and ultra rich? They achieved success by putting in a lot of work over many years.

There is evidence that even the most accomplished people need about ten years of hard work before becoming world-class, a pattern so established that researchers even refer to it as the ten-year rule.

So what am i trying to say by all of this? My point is you have the potential to become truly great. However, to do this, you will have to delay instant gratification and focus on long term development of yourself in order become truely great and live up to your potential.
