Potential means having or showing the capacity to develop into something in the future. Or I can say latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success or usefulness.
Why I (Annu Bharti) am writing a blog on this very topic?
Like many people, I was also living my life never discovering who I am, what may I could become, how could I change my status of living. Blaming my financial situation, having the belief of being an ordinary girl, was started living in the same way as my elder generation’s girls were living with a desire to do something great in my life. Here is the answer to the above-asked question “I am writing this blog with the thought that it may inspire you to awaken you’re potential within you so that you live your dreams.
Two years back I was struggling in between my dream and reality of life. I was trying to accept that life is going to be like this only I have to learn to adjust in this situation, anyhow. Our potential lies between what is (scenario of that time) and what could be (it could be). It was not easy for me to let my dreams go but the circumstances that were happening around me was forcing me to do so. During this phase of my life, my potential was fading. At that moment one of my uncle saw the potential within me and encouraged my parent to send me out for higher studies t. His words to me were like energy drink which forced me to think “Potential is a priceless treasure, like gold. All of us have gold hidden within, but we have to dig to get it out.” Then I started trying many new things to reach until my potential. But I was never knowing our potential is unlimited it just depends on our continuous effort, not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential. Fortunately, I came in contact with an NGO “Project Potential” which change my belief by saying “You have the potential to be anything you want.” Then my new journey begins out of that confined area which I was intended to live for half of my life. To reach our greatest potential we’ll have to fight you’re greatest fears. After overcoming all my fears I was been the first girl to joined Navgurukul at Gurgaon from a small town Kishanganj Bihar.
NavGurukul the Second and most special NGO which gave me wings to fly independently and see the whole world with a new perspective. Just recognizing your potential will not result in success until when you put your heart and hard work in it. To achieve the best version of you, you have to know yourself, very well. Know where you’re weaknesses lie. But more importantly, know where you’re strengths and talents lie. From thereon, use you’re strengths and talents to focus it towards a goal.
Never stay stagnant, always find a way to improve yourself. Be better then you were yesterday. This is not the same as saying that you should not be proud of who you are; it’s saying that you should always be on the lookout for areas where you can improve on. To think that you have nothing to improve on is somewhat egoistic. After lots of guidance, mentorship, support, encouragement of many people and my hard work of days and nights, took me towards my dreams.
Being honest to yourself as well as lots of introspection is always going to help you out to check and appreciate yourselves.
I have lots of gratitude towards thousands of people who made my journey smoother and I am proud of myself for being continuously ready to work hard, for constantly being eager to learn new things and improve myself. I will also admire myself for being ready to sacrifice a lot of things.
Till now just I have taken the first step yet have to go very far in my career.
Now, my dream is to help more such people like me who are struggling to find their way to achieving not only success but also happiness and prosperity of his/her family/town.
At last, I would like to say each one of us possesses the abundance potential to achieve anything we want just there is need to realize it and utilize it. “The big challenge is to become all that you have the possibility of becoming. You cannot believe what it does to the human spirit to maximize you’re human potential and stretch yourself to the limit.”
“Sooner or later, the one who wins are those who think they can.”
So, do you think you can?????
