13 Quotes to inspire you to reach your full potential

13 Quotes on fulfilling your potential | InformedInspiration.com

What is potential?

In order to have a chance to reach your full potential, you need to first determine what it means. The dictionary definition of potential is

  1. having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future.
  2. latent qualities or abilities that may be developed and lead to future success or usefulness.
  3. the possibility of something happening or of someone doing something in the future.

I will use the highlighted words in the definitions above to flesh out what Potential means to me.

Potential is untapped abilities. It is the capacity you have to become all you can be.
Potential is latent abilities waiting to be unhidden, developed and given expression.
It is the possibility we all have to become all we can be.

Although the two substances look nothing alike, the diamond was always in there. The Diamonds are extracted by putting the Kimberlite through an intense diamond recovery process.
