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 21 2013: First, this is such a great question, thank you

    Second, as I'm an undergraduate student, I can say that I have not realized my potential yet because I'm on the way !

    If we generalize it, we can easily see that everyone is on the way which is indicated according to the potential. Thus, I state that if we realize our potential, we can be sure that it is the end.
