Dear friend, we are all endowed with special gifts, talents and abilities – i.e. our potential. Some of us realize this potential quite early in life whereas, for some, it takes a lifetime to realize this. These latter people who take time to realize their potential often accept the fact that they have lost the time needed to bring their real potential to the surface. That is why, it is really important to realize your potential within a given time period, else it’s often too late to begin.

Moreover, one can also realize one’s hidden talent while discovering one’s real potential. This is done with experience, with the help of family, friends and even enemies. However, quite unfortunately, people at times, also tend to de-motivate a person to such an extent that their search for their hidden potential becomes lost in their misery. Here are some general guidelines which I have used and can be adopted in order to buff and polish your hidden potential.

1. Read books/blogs: If you want to discover your hidden talent or potential, you can explore and search your interests and stay abreast of the latest happenings in your field of interest. This would not only keep you updated, but also make you flourish especially if your career is in your interest fields.

2. Expand your exposure: You need to expose yourself to different happenings that take place these days. In many cases, you will realize that your hidden potential lies in the knowledge that you were exposed to since childhood.

3. Find a good mentor: A successful mentor who understands you would certainly make you realize your hidden potential. They will help you regarding matters such as dealing with family matters, business dealings and other aspects.

4. Accept challenging work: Taking up challenges will help you optimize your potential and find it. Being out of your comfort zone will not only make you realize what you are made of, but you will also be surprised to discover those aspects about your personality that are actually unknown to you.

5. Participate in competitions: Participating in competitions will help you tap into your own talent pool and discover the undiscovered! This will help you to maximize your time and energy and enhance your skills.

6. Try new things: you should treat every day as a new day, a new beginning. Look ahead at new avenues and don’t hesitate to try new things or take risks.

Each one of us has unique potential hidden inside us. All we need to do is to wake up and start looking for it.

Until next time, make this a week one in which you are living your life to the fullest.
With appreciation and gratitude
