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 29 2012: i think i still have to find myself in a string of thread I'm pulling out together. I have a job which I can;'t totally commit myself with, primarily because it is not my passion. I have pursued something that I partially love, my heart and mind are in constant race for significance, and I find myself in a cross road of opportunities.

      How would it feel to believe that you ARE ALREADY VERY SIGNIFICANT? Simply "being" yourself and pursuing "life" is significant....do you think? "Cross road of opportunities" sounds like a GREAT place to be....many possibilities?
