I often wrestle with the concept of what the mission and purpose of our lives actually is. Of the many different ideas I have discovered, the one that rings true with me, is the ability and willingness to live our full potential. Every virtue, treasure and reward in life is dependent on us uncovering and living according to our potential.

Robert Louis Stevenson had a wonderful way with words. He stated this idea so beautifully over a hundred years ago. “To become what we are capable of becoming is the only end in life”

So what is living your potential? Potential simply means possible, as opposed to what is current or actual at the moment. We have the ability to acquire latent excellence and to become more every day of our lives. We have the ability to constantly grow, expand and to create a better version of ourselves day after day. The way to un-wrap this greatness and to begin exploring the extent of your hidden potential, is to first believe in your abilities and to know that you have greatness hidden inside you. Once you unlock this treasure chest of potential and you start the process of exploring the unknown limits of your own possibilities. You have discovered the path to living a full and meaningful life.

Thomas Edison said it so well when he said: “If we all did the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves”.

Have you ever dreamt about what you are capable of achieving and then committed yourself to the process of growing your skills and abilities as you gradually knead and mold your values to align them with these dreams? Or have you stifled your yearning for great success because you have had a few setbacks in your life? That has then made you flee to the safety of mediocrity and inactivity.

One of the great thought leaders and fathers of the personal development industry Dale Carnegie said “We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do”.

Are you exploring the limits of your potential every day by striving to learn and expand? Or are you allowing your fear to keep you trapped in an unfulfilling life of routine and average? Have the courage to finally pull the trigger on your potential and begin to explore the unlimited scale of what is possible for you. Tap into your genius and constantly strive to become more and you will attract more into your life:

1) More spiritual connection
2) Better relationships
3) Greater health
4) Financial freedom and choice
5) Career or vocation satisfaction
6) Outstanding family connections
7) Great joy in giving, guiding and assisting others

One of the great Philosophers of the 19 century, Soren Kierkegaard, said it so well when he said: “There is nothing of which every man is so afraid as getting to know how enormously much he is capable of doing and becoming”.

Stop allowing your fear of what you can have, do and be, to prevent you from stretching yourself to realize your full potential. You are magnificent. Start to see it, believe it and become it. Are your beliefs in what you think is possible for you, keeping you trapped in mediocrity? That stops right here and right now. Use this book to explore and uncover what really is possible for you. Now pull the trigger on a fantastic future and begin evolving into the best version of yourself possible.

In the words of Nelson Mandela, “There is no passion found in playing small – settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living”.

Not living your potential does not only keep you trapped in a life that is un-fulfilling and empty, it is damaging to your health as well. Psychologists have known for a long time that we create massive internal stress when what we are doing on the outside (Actions and Behaviors) is incongruent with our potential (possibilities) on the inside. Now is the time to start living a congruent life and to accept that possibility and potential are your birth right. Begin living your full potential today, strive to adjust and align your values so that they support those possibilities.

Dr John F. Demartini, one of the great thought leaders of our time, epitomizes the need to unlock your potential. He says that “Deep inside every individual there is a desire or calling to live a truly inspired, purposeful and meaningful life; a life so fulfilled that they feel gratefully empowered in many if not all of the seven key areas of life: spiritual, mental, financial, vocational, family, physical and social”.

You too can live a truly magnificent and inspired life that will allow you to become the best version of you possible. If you are willing to move outside your comfort zone and explore the boundaries of your potential, you can and will find the harmony you are searching for, in all seven areas of your life. No matter where you find yourself right now, you can begin the journey to unlock your potential and live an inspiring life.

After reading this book you will have a set of tools that will allow you to align your hierarchy of values with what is possible for you. These possibilities will become probabilities, and eventually your future reality. This is simply a practical, achievable process of first uncovering what is possible, creating a deep rooted belief that it is possible for you, and then using the tools offered in this book to align your values with these possibilities and to develop a set of success habits that will support exactly that in your life.

Start right now, by believing in your greatness and begin to see the unfathomable strength, courage and ability that has been gifted to you. Once you begin to have undeniable faith in your own potential and you commit yourself to follow the processes offered in this book. You have a toolkit that will allow you to unwrap, begin to explore and use your full potential. Commit to use the tools offered and expand your belief around what is possible for you. There will be real positive changes in your life and you will soon begin to see the difference in your world.
