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 31 2012: Hi Juliette,
    I reach out to others to build strong and trusting relationships. I try to get acquainted and find common interests, Once that relationship is established, I work to keep it fresh and strong. Working together for common goals is a great way to keep a relationship strong.

    In 2013, I will be tracking legislation that affects our Hawaiian environment and encouraging others to advocate for good bills and against bad ones. I will produce 12 environmental documentaries which will be posted to YouTube and broadcast on our public TV. And, I will help at least 24 people start their own work-from-anywhere internet business that will help them reach their potential. I will help some of those people start their aquaponics garden.

    What about your goals for 2013? What will you do to move closer to realizing your dreams? When you share your goals you are making a commitment to the people you share them with to follow through and do what you say. Sharing will motivate you to make your dreams come true.
