Have you realized your potential?

How did you do it?
Did you just one day wake up, work hard and suddenly you're at the top? Or are you struggling every day, not realizing it, sitting at a desk, watching these TED video's and praying for a better life.

If I may ask, what are your individual stories behind your passion and potential?
Was it starting a company in you're basement, knowing that you could do something better? Or inside a multi-billion dollar company starting in the mail room, then suddenly working on the thirtieth floor?

People's stories, especially on topics like this, really really interest me. I want to learn from them, so maybe I can realize my potential. Any thoughts?

  • Dec 23 2012: Well I think reaching your full potential has more to do with your personal growth more than your monetary value....I think that now but if you asked me that 20years ago i"m sure my views were different. Maybe we never reach our full potential and thats what drives us to do more and do better things in our lives.
