The Concept Of Potential

Everything In Life Has A Potential

‘’All men are sent to the world with limitless credit, but few draw to their full extent’’

It is disastrous to know that with over 7 billion people on this earth today, only a unit of time percentage will experience a significant ratio of their true potential. Perhaps Your potential was not given for you to deposit in the grave.

You must understand the extremely large potential you possess and commit yourself to maximizing it to positively affect lives in your short lifetime.

Your life here on earth is too short and therefore can be measured.


Potential is unexposed ability and Inactive power.

Potential is_ reserved power _dormant ability _untapped strength _unused success _hidden talents.

  • what you can accomplish but have not yet accomplished.
  • all you can do but have not yet done
  • how far you can reach but have not yet reached
  • All you can be but have not yet become…

Potential is not what you have done, but what you are yet able to do.

In other words, what you have done is no longer your potential. What you have successfully accomplished is no longer potential.

It is said that unless you do something beyond what you have done, you will never experience your full potential.

Potential demands that you never settle for what you have accomplished. One of the great enemies of your potential is success.

In order to realize your full potential, you must never be satisfied with your last achievement. It is also important that you never let what you cannot do intrude with what you can do.

‘’The greatest adversity in life is not death, but a life that never attain its full potential’’.

You must decide today not to rob the world of the valuable, resources stuck within you.


To simplify the concept of potential, let us look at one of the most potent elements in life…the seed. If I held a seed in my hand, I’m not just holding a seed but a forest. Apparently, if I asked you, “What do I have in my hand?” Perhaps you would answer a seed.

However, if you understand the true essence of a seed, your answer would be factual but not truth.

The fact is I hold a forest in my hand. Why? Because in every seed there is a tree, and in every tree there is fruit or flowers with seeds in them. And these seeds also have trees that have flowers and fruit that also have seeds. etc.

‘’In life, what you see is not all there is. That is potential. Not what is, but what could be’’.

God created everything with potential according to Genesis chapter 1:1-31


Potential is always available, waiting to be used. It requires that you never settle for what you have achieved. God wants you to utilize the potential He has given you. You are not yet what you are supposed to be; though you may be OK with what you have now.


Don’t accept your present state in life as final; Never accept an achievement as the end. It is but a starting point in the process

God is always looking for what is not yet visible. He expects to find inside each one of you here on earth more than what is on the outside.



We believe in our future self!
