You have more potential than you realize.
I have no doubt you have seen this somewhere before. I think every single self-help concept in existence makes this particular statement. All the new-age teachers and concepts like The Secret and The Law of Attraction say it. This does not make it any less true.
This applies to everyone. It is a simple fact. Some days it is just harder to see and recognize and acknowledge than other days.
We live in a society where most of our leaders prefer to disempower us than to help us realize how much potential we each have. Why? Because they think power is finite, and they want to hoard it to the best of their abilities.
You have more potential than you realize. No matter how difficult your day may be, no matter the obstacles in your path, you can change your world. You have more control than you know, and you have the most power to empower yourself.
The catch is that you have to choose to empower yourself. You have to recognize your own strengths and your own weaknesses in order to take what actions are necessary to empower yourself.
We all have routines and patterns we follow in our days and weeks, but we also have the power to change them. We can break from our routines, and we can create new patters to choose for ourselves the lives we most desire to have.
Recognizing that you have more potential than you realize is filled with Positivity. This idea can help us to build better things for ourselves, to make more of our own choices for our own lives, and that is hugely positive.
Do you want to control your life, or give that control to someone else? I think people don’t see how little it takes to give away our own empowerment.
We may not recognize we are doing it. Did you hear the thing about that person in the office? Isn’t that person terrible? If you respond in the affirmative and then spread the story to another coworker, but prior to that story you had a different opinion of the person in question – you have given away your power. Did that story REALLY change your opinion of the person in question, or did you just accept someone else’s take at face value?
When we accept as true things we do not examine for ourselves, or when we allow the opinions of others to become our own opinions without real consideration – we have allowed another control.
You have more potential than you realize. This is a powerfully positive notion that we can all give focus to, and thus build more Positivity, and better lives as such.
Finding positivity is not hard, it just requires action. Knowing that you have more potential than you realize, you have far more options for how you choose to live your life. When we better see what we might be capable of we empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
This is the ninety-sixth entry of my Positivity series. It is my hope these weekly messages might help spread positive energies for everyone. Feel free to share, re-blog and spread the positivity.
