EVERYONE Has Potential (including you)

19 Jan

stephencurryshooting_original[1]Not everyone can sprint like Usain Bolt, but everyone has the potential to get faster.

Not everyone can be an Olympic power lifter, but everyone has the potential to get stronger.

Not everyone can shoot like Stephen Curry, but every basketball player has the potential to become an improved shooter. (or ball-handler, etc.)

Not everyone can be Mike Krzyzewski, but every coach has the potential to be more effective in leading his or her team.

Not everyone can graduate at the top of their class, but every student has the potential to improve his or her grades.

Not everyone can be a world-renowned college professor, but every teacher has the potential to be a more effective educator.

Not everyone can be a great orator, but everyone has the potential to improve their public speaking skills.

Better parent. Better friend. Better teammate. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do.  All of us have potential, and we can all improve in some area(s) of our lives.  Talent, skill, and ability are great, but they’re useless if they’re not applied.

Potential is a double-edged sword.  Having the potential to learn, grow, develop, and improve is a blessing.  Unrealized potential is a curse.

What are you doing to unlock your potential?  What are you willing to do to improve?

Get STRONGER, Get FASTER!
