Ok, so here's the deal: I hate the word potential. I think it royally sucks. What six year old or 15 year old or 37 year old wants to hear they have a lot of potential?
It's code for "you're not good enough."
I say, "Bump that!"
After living like I was close to (but notquite) living up to my potential, I realized that only if I own my power in the present moment will I exceed that potential trap.
Let me break it down:
Presence + Power = Surpassing Potential.
It's simple, but not always easy.
