How to Unlock Your Potential

Do you wonder why you haven't accomplished more with your life? Do you feel that you have great potential locked up inside of you? Most adults feel this way.

No one ever truly reaches their potential, but it's discouraging that so many of us never even scratch the surface of our potential.

Are you ready to find out what you can do?

Find out what you're really capable of accomplishing:

1. Be bold.

This is the number one tip for unleashing your potential on the world. Your limited achievements are likely due to the fact that you're timid.

If you were out there doing your best each day, you'd be too busy piling up successes to read an article like this.

Stop caring about the opinions of others and show the world what you've got.

2. Have bold goals.

To live up to your potential, you need goals. Goals provide a direction for your energy and effort.

Effective goals are motivating, which is great if you're going to set bold goals!

Avoid overwhelming yourself. Goals should be bold, but not overwhelming.

3. Combine your strengths and interests.

Do you really care about maximizing your chess-playing potential if you don't enjoy playing chess?

You'll have the most potential in the areas where you show natural strength and have a high level of interest. What are you good at that you also enjoy?

4. Get expert assistance.

Some of the leading experts in the world still have a coach or mentor. The right mentor can help you to reach your potential faster than you can do it alone.

Spend the time necessary to find a good mentor. It's like putting your progress on the fast track.

5. Make progress each day.

A small amount of progress, accumulated over time, can result in amazing progress. Avoid overwhelming yourself by setting a schedule or goals that you can't maintain.

But, be sure to make some progress each and every day. The amount of progress you can make in a year would be staggering.

6. Develop habits that help you accomplish your goals.

Keeping with the same theme of making progress each day, your habits are those things you do each day. An effective set of habits all but guarantees success.

Examine your goals and determine the habits that would make success likely. The hardest job you have is creating habits.

Once the right habits are in place, there's little else to worry about. Create an effective routine and stick with it.

7. Determine your obstacles.

There's always something in the way. It might be a lack of time, money, or other resource. Maybe you have a spouse that demands a lot of your time.

Maybe you live in the wrong place. After all, it's not easy to maximize your surfing skills in Missouri.

Create a plan for dealing with your obstacles.

What can you do to overcome them, or at least minimize them? What do you need?

What do you need to stop doing? How can you alter your life to make success more likely?

8. Expect success.

If you expect failure, you're bound to fail. Why not give yourself the benefit of the doubt and expect good things?

If you have solid goals, good habits, and a smidge of discipline, there's no reason to doubt yourself.

Making a few decisions, acting boldly, and finding a mentor are just a few of the things you can do to unlock your potential.

Make today the day you start living at your highest level. What are you waiting for?

The Surprising Truth about Your Brainpower and How to Use It

You may be much smarter than you think. Last year, scientists at the Salk Institute discovered that the human brain's computing power is ten times greater than previously thought.

The new estimate suggests that you have the computing ability and information storage capacity of the entire World Wide Web right between your ears.

With that kind of upper limit, it's time to believe in yourself and aim higher. Consider these ideas to help you excel.

Applying More Brain Power to Your Personal Life:

1. Continue learning.

Make education a lifelong experience. Maybe you want to return to school full time, take an occasional evening course, or just study on your own.

2. Read more.

Studies show that reading enhances memory, relieves stress, and may even help you live longer.

Pick up a classic novel at the library or enjoy the e-book version. Add in some non-fiction science and history.

3. Find a hobby.

Turn off the TV and tune into an enriching project that engages your creativity. Knit a sweater or restore vintage furniture.

4. Travel around.

Visiting different countries or even a few unfamiliar neighborhoods expands your perspective. Travel really is broadening.

5. Cultivate healthy relationships.

Social interactions play a big role in the quality of your life.

Spend time with your loved ones. Hang onto old friends, and look for opportunities to make new ones.

6. Teach your kids.

Share your expertise with your children.

Help them with their homework or plan a family outing to the local natural history museum.

7. Take care of your health.

Be smart about self-care. Keep up with the latest research on nutrition, medicine, and aging.

Talk with your doctor and other health professionals about how the latest studies apply to you.

8. Volunteer your services.

Giving back to society can be personally rewarding. Contact a charity that interests you and propose a project that will let you explore new skills or leverage your current strengths.

9. Deepen Your Faith.

Strengthen the foundation of your beliefs. Study scriptures and talk with others in your spiritual community.

Cheers, Helene Malmsio
