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: I can't say I've realised my full potential. I think a more appropriate conversation should be "Have you found your passion/purpose & you are using it as a business to change the world, How did you find it & used it for change?" Because this is something most of us don't know & haven't found. I'm still trying to find mine & its not so easy and straight. Any ideas on this is most welcome, thanks.
