Unlock today’s potential by choice “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. The budding potential of a moment is unlocked by the choices you make. If a moment is the gate through which your journey begins, then choice is the key that unlocks the adventure.
The most powerful activity you will engage in today is making choices. Sometimes it feels as if life is nothing more than dull, that there isn’t anything there to seize. That is the greatest tragedy of all. Many times we can be captivated by others’ lives. Envying them, even. One of the mistakes we can make is concluding that those on the other side of the curtain are more talented, more gifted, or just more fortunate than we are. We assume that they must be different from us; otherwise, we would be living that kind of life too.
Let’s be honest: Simply watching life go by will never yield deep satisfaction. You cannot live vicariously through someone else’s life. You were not designed to gaze from the sidelines.
Quit making excuses that it’s about talent or giftedness or intelligence; it’s about moving out of passivity into activity.
