potential is never enough

it’s always easier to see the potential in others more than the potential in yourself.

Thing is, you can have all the potential in the world . . you can KNOW you have all the potential in the world, but NOONE is going to give a shit enough to hold your pretty little hand and take you through every glitch in the road. . people have their own lives to live and they care more about their success than yours.

Sure you’ll get a little help along the way every now and then. . but it’s ALWAYS going to be up to you to make that potential something more . . turn that lead into gold.

Because potential means NOTHING. .

you don’t make a difference on potential . .

you don’t change people’s lives on potential . .

you don’t learn from potential . .

. . potential isn’t success . . it’s one of those little steps that leads you TO success.

I’ve been there . . i’m at that place sometimes where i settle for less than i think i can achieve . . or there’s too many probable steps to take . . so many paths . . too many options, that i don’t decide anything . . then nature takes it’s course and opportunities disappear . . or the achievement takes 20 times longer than it could have.

When i talk about “potential” . . i’m also referring to people who have achieved what they’ve set out to achieve . but once they do, the hype is over . . that light inside them has blown out. . that rush . . that sense of urgency to take over the world is DEAD.

I think that’s where a lot of us fail.

Anybody can achieve something ONCE . . achieve a goal once . . achieve the perfect body once . . but it’s striving for even MORE than that . . keeping that pace with the next goal and the next goal and the next . . because you don’t know how high that mountain is until you climb up further and further . . and when you DO reach the top and there’s nowhere left to climb . . it’s up to you to find another mountain, higher than the one before and start climbing.
