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?

    Jan 14 2013: Absolutely Frankey! It's why I journal, have a wisdom bookshelf, a Wall of Accomplishments as well as a core group of friends to remind me like touchstones of times when I think I can't get through "this" reminds me that I can because I got through "that".

    Thanks for your reply.
