What is Your Possibility?

Potential! What does this word mean? Miriam Webster defines potential as follows: 1: existing in possibility : capable of development into actuality 2: expressing possibility ; specifically : of, relating to, or constituting a verb phrase expressing possibility, liberty, or power by the use of an auxiliary with the infinitive of the verb (as in "it may rain") We are all in different stages of our lives.
Some of us are just graduating from high school or college, some of us have been in the work force for a while, some are at the middle point of our lives, some are gracing retirement and some have retired.
Regardless of our age and point in life, we have all been faced with the potential of something.
Potential can carry a positive or negative tone.
If I get diagnosed with a rare disease, I have two choices for my outlook.
I can consider my potential to heal and be restored, or I can consider my potential to die.
Many of us have felt the loss of what we perceive as "lost" potential.
Sometimes we can fall into the trap of focusing on what we could have done.
When focusing on what you could have done, you miss the potential of what you could be doing right now.
Potential can be negatively impacted when there is failure.
I personally have tried a few things that have not worked out.
When this happens, I have two choices: I can mourn the loss of what I thought could have happened, or I can actually learn from the failure and improve.
It is not hard to see that learning from the failure carries with it a much more positive outlook.
Many of us may believe that we have missed out on our potential.
This could not be farther from the truth.
We have only missed out on our potential if we accept this belief.
It does not matter what age that we are or how many failures we have had.
There is always room for new ideas.
Even if the new idea means that we will start with the most basic requirement every day; connecting to God.
It is through this practice of connection that we can be inspired and receive ideas that meet us right where we are.
We hold the power within our own minds to reach the potential of anything that we chose to do.
Even the person who is wheelchair bound but still has their mind could reach a point in prayer where the effect of the light that comes from their prayer actually changes history.
Our potential is directly linked to our ability to dream, conceive and is partnered with our desire to act.
Ask yourself, what is your potential? How can you use this potential for the greater good of all? What is your next step to begin to fulfill your idea and bring it into actuality?
