FuEL Your Ambition
We can be anything that we want to be. Money, power and success is ours for the taking. In each of us, nature has planted a seed, a potential that can blossom into anything our minds can fathom. We just have to look inwards and find where, inside us, it is planted. When we do find it, we need to water it, nurture it and watch it grow into a giant tree – any type of tree we desire, even the type that money grows on. In this blog and the next blogs that follow, I’ll show you 4 simple steps to help you harness your potential and fulfill your greatest ambitions.
Step 1. Find It. (Your Potential)
Everyone is good at something… that I can say with authority. The problem is, we often take ourGod-given gifts for granted and go on to compare ourselves with others we feel are more gifted or more successful. “If only I was as good as they are…” we say. The truth is that those ‘successful’ people started out just like you – the only difference is that they believed in themselves and took the next steps without looking back. We need to borrow a leaf from them and do the same. You’re probably thinking, ‘So what am I good at that can significantly turn my life around?’ I’ll give you a few examples I often see in people. Some people are creative and artistic, some have good writing skills, some are good listeners, some able to analyze, some cook well, others are able to organize homes… events… meetings and some are good talkers able to cheer up those around them. The list goes on and on. I’m sure you probably see yourself in one of those examples. As simple as these attributes seem, each is worth millions of dollars… you just need to know how to apply them.
Take Larry King for example. In his book ‘How to talk to anyone, anywhere and anytime’, he confessed that his only strength was talking. Everyone knew him to be a chatterbox. Well, he did not feel bad about it, instead he took the only thing he was good at and made a fortune out of it. Today, he still is probably the most famous TV Show host on the planet. Now, I know people around me whose talkativeness would intimidate poor Larry. They have a natural gift to excel just like he did and maybe surpass his achievements. They just need to sound their trumpets in the right direction.
When you have a knack for something, you are amongst 20% of the world’s population who are good at that thing. It means that 1 in 5 people you meet have the same talent. Giving those numbers, if you chose to pursue a dream along that gift, the likelihood is that you will succeed – the odds are in your favor.
Do this now – grab a sheet of paper and write down those things you are good at. It doesn’t matter how unpolished your skills may be at the moment, just write them down. Some of you would be surprised to find that you have more gifts than you realized. Now, analyze each of the gifts on your list and think of how many friends share those skills. Not much, maybe one or two– maybe none. That should make you feel special because you are special. Know that. Now that you’ve identified something you are good at, follow me on to the next step and I’ll show you in very practical ways, how to put that ability to work. You’ll be amazed.

Every gift, talent or ability you possess is a potential that exists to be harnessed. Each one is a unique attribute that can change your world if channeled in the right direction. Finding your potential is the first step to unlocking the unlimited power within you – understanding that potential is the next step towards fulfillment…
