All of us are given a set of talents that we need to discover in our lifetime—a set of talents to achieve our purpose and inspire others.

But many go through life unable to tap their potentials, never used their talents or even had the courage to explore or pursue their passions. They unconsciously developed a limited belief system which they accepted and consider as their reality. Others have allowed their current environment, stressful experiences, and other people’s negative comments determine who they are. They allowed emotions to take control, which usually creates more problems in work and family life.

If we do not know our true potentials and capabilities, then life would become more difficult when facing work and family challenges. Our actions will always have a reaction or consequence. Therefore, many personal and professional goals are left unfulfilled not because people lack the resources, but because they failed to understand their true potentials and what they can do to live a great life.

Always remember that we have a power called “choice” or “unlimited possibilities.” Every day, we have the power to choose to have a new way of thinking whenever faced with personal, professional, and even financial challenges. You have a choice to keep your faith in the Lord—to have faith that everything will be all right, and to expect the sun will shine again and help you surpass your financial storms.

You have a choice to decide to take care of your health at all times; to feel that something good will happen even through hard times, and to build happy memories with your family despite misunderstandings.

You have the choice to take action and see solutions for your company, customers, and your team instead of focusing on finding faults and comparison. You have the choice to create a product or a service that can change the world. You have the choice to be a blessing to others. The moment you understand your full potentials, you gain the power to achieve success in all areas of your life.

“There is no limit to what you can become to create a life well lived.” – Eric Manalo
