The passion for potential

Tuesday May 7, 2013 #521

 

“If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of potential — for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible.”

 

~Soren Kierkegaard

 

It is a true gift to be able to see the possible in every person, and situation.  Too often we focus on limitations and obstacles rather than potential solutions and the possibilities of positive outcomes.  This is due to our very human fears and desire to avoid pain.  To battle this, we must focus intentionally on our ability to choose our thoughts and while recognizing our fears, push beyond them with courage – enabling us to see the potential and take action to move towards it.  With this ability, wealth and power will come naturally.  Like anything, this is a skill that grows with practice.  Start now.
