Seatbelts restrain us from movement during different phases of flight on board a commercial jet. Once our seatbelts are released, we are free to move about the cabin or exit through the forward door upon landing, after being secured to the jet bridge. We progress forward until we reach the awaiting concourse which leads us to another flight or our intended destination.
If we remain attached to our seats, no progress takes place. We are then parallel to “potential in dormancy.”
Potential is liberated in several ways.
Firstly, RECOGNIZE that we are more than what our reflection in the mirror says.
Secondly, SIT quietly and imagine what you desire to develop within the deepest part of your soul that will make a difference in the world – even if it’s something bigger than yourself.
Albert Einstein said, “ Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
Thirdly, FOCUS on what causes you to have a heartfelt zeal that is greater than anything else in your day-to-day existence.
ACCEPT that these three simple steps will unfold your true calling. Oftentimes, the world we live in suggests complicated avenues to obtain our purpose – a formal education is one of them. Education does qualify us, but it does not DEFINE the essence of who we are. We must surely avail ourselves to every opportunity for improvement to keep our brain functioning at its best.
Remember to dig deeper into the heart where potential is hidden for a time and released at the appointed time.
