Imagine If You Could Just Close Your Eyes…. And See What Your Potential Really Is
In the first Blog, the goal was to show the effects of a Change In Reality. For me, that was the catalyst of a journey of wanting to do better, to give better, to get a better result not only for me, but for my team. A journey that resulted in an amazing system to make managing simple, cause it is something that definitely is not easy.
I have often thought, where would I be today if I had not had that Change in Reality? What if I had chosen a different path. What if I had never had the opportunity to work with Gerry? More likely than not, I think I would be 20 years older, and still looking at things the way I did 20 years ago.
I was lucky. I had my Change In Reality, but when you are in a position where you have to lead a team and manage a project to try and get the results you expect, you realize very quickly that not everyone has had their Change in Reality moment. There are many who’s expectations of what can be achieved, what results can be produced, are no where near what you believe.
Sometimes our greatest enemy, our greatest detractor, our greatest discourager is the person we see in the mirror every morning and every night… ourselves. We are the ones who tell ourselves “this is the way it is”, “this is the way it will always be”, “I’m not smart enough to do better”, “I can’t be that person who succeeds”, “I will fail, and everyone will notice”. We are the ones who get to have the first statement to us when we get up, and the last statement to us when we go to bed. When we are our own greatest enemy, detractor, and discourager, it’s so difficult to see what our potential really is. But what if? What if we had the opportunity to be our greatest supporter, our greatest defender, our greatest encourager? Sometimes we really don’t know our potential. We never got to experience a Change in Reality. And because we didn’t, we never got the opportunity to be our greatest supporter, our greatest defender, our greatest encourager.
If you can, please ask those who may interrupt you in the next 15 minutes to hold off for those 15 minutes. Make this next 15 minutes completely uninterruptible by anyone or anything (phone calls, texts, tweets, Facebook posts, anything). It’s roughly about the time you will need to finish up this blog. Everyone needs to see that there are potentials in their life far greater that they every thought possible. Our wish for you is that in the next 15 minutes you feel that you have so much more potential than you have ever thought.
