It is a tragedy to know that with billions of people living on this planet today, only fraction percentage will experience a significant inbuilt of their true purpose.
It’s realistic we must all realised purpose is a mandate that all being must fulfil because it’s an obligation from God to all his Creature.
I personally believed if you are not fulfilling the essence of why God has created you it’s those an aberration if you are not fulfilling his will and purpose for your life.
Perhaps you are a candidate for contributing to the wastage wealth of the cemetery. Your potential was not given for you to deposit in the grave. You must understand the tremendous potential you possess and commit yourself to maximizing it in your short lifetime.
What is potential, anyway?
Late Dr. Myres Munroe in his blessed memory defined potential as:
It is dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success, hidden talents, capped capability.
All you can be but have not yet become. All you can do but have not yet done. How far you can reach but have not yet reached. What you can accomplish but have not yet accomplished.
Potential is unexposed ability and latent power. It is also important that you never let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. The greatest tragedy in life is not death, but a life that never realized its full potential and senses for living and existing in life.
You must decide today not to rob the world of the rich, valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you. Your Potential does have a retirement plan except you want to retire the purpose which He has created you and if you does you are then good for nothing existing being.
To simplify this concept let us look at one of the most powerful elements in nature, the seed. if I held a seed in my hand and asked you, “What do i have in my hand?” what would you say? Perhaps you would answer what seems to be the obvious, a seed. However, if you understand the nature of a seed, your answer would be fact but not truth.
The truth is I hold a forest in my hand. Why? Because in every seed there is a tree, and in every tree there is fruit or flowers with seeds in them. And these seeds also have trees that have fruit that have seeds, that have trees that have fruit that have seeds, etc. In essence, what you see is not all there is. That is potential. Not what is, but what could be. God created everything with potential, including you. he placed the seed of each thing within itself (Genesis 1:12), and planted within each person or thing He created the ability to be much more than it is at any one moment. Thus, everything in life has potential.
In a nutshell to fulfil your purpose for living you my learn to explore your potential to it peak because potential never have an expired date.
