When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat him as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be. – Goethe
I’ve been waiting for you.
But I’ll assume you’ve neglected to attain me, because you don’t know what I’m all about.
So let me take a few moments to explain:
I am a place where deep joy is found.
I am a place where a great contribution is made.
I am a place where much satisfaction is experienced.
Though pain will be required to reach me, pleasure will be your reward.
Though fear must be overcome to obtain me, fulfillment will be your prize.
Though sacrifice will be required to find me, significance will be your delight.
So who, exactly, am I?
I am Your Potential.
And I am pleading with you to stop ignoring and avoiding me.
Because the truth is…
Until pursuing me becomes your priority, mediocrity will be your reality.
