You are probably asking, Jesse, what does that have to do with unlocking my potential? Let's take a look.
I like to relate boiling water with achieving your goals in life. Imagine a goal having 212 steps to take to achieve this goal. Some people will take 10 steps and give up. Some people with spend 2 months working at something, take 50 steps and call it quits. Others may have taken 185 steps and been very close to their goal, yet quit right before they could have achieved their goal.
The most successful people, are the ones that always go the extra mile and never give up until their goal is reached, or the water is boiling. Wake up early, go to bed late, put forth more effort that the other, "average" person. That extra effort you give, the time you may want to quit but keep on going even though you are tired, is what makes that 1* difference. That little 1* or one step is sometimes all that you need to achieve your goal. Heard of the straw that broke the camels back? Similar analogy.
That extra effort will be rewarded in the long run in some way shape or form. It may come in the form of a pay raise, or promotion. You may receive it in the quality of your relationships, you never know where it may appear. Stay focused on your goals, work hard at improving yourself and becoming a better person.
Unlock your potential!
Today is a glorious day. Have safe and Happy Easter Holiday with your friends, family, coworkers, and loved ones!
Until next time...
