How do you measure potential?
How can you take something as it is and create an educated measurement of what it could be?
It seems almost impossible and I sense that we tend to err on the side of caution when we do this. To be honest most of our thinking around what could be in the future comes from what has happened in the past.
We drastically underestimate what we are capable of.
We drastically underestimate what those around us are capable of.
Is it possible that what we can achieve, the difference we can make and the impact we can have on others is being held back by fear?
Right in the middle of Ephesians, the author Paul, implores his readers to cast aside their ideas of what they think life should be like and begin to dream about what could be through the strength of God who’s ‘mighty power is at work within us’ and is able to ‘accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think’.
So what are you capable of?
OR perhaps a more practical question – what would you would do at work, in your relationships, in any area of life right now if you weren’t afraid.
That’s the first step to glimpsing what your potential is.
