On Potential

Excerpts  from his book: John Maxwell, “15 Invaluable Laws of Growth”

“Potential is one of the most wonderful words in any language. It looks forward with optimism. It is filled with hope. It promises success. It implies fulfillment. It hints at greatness. Potential is a word based on possibilities.”

“You have to know who you are to grow to your potential. But you have to grow in order to know who you are.”

“Bruce Springsteen commented, “A time comes when you need to stop waiting for the man you want to become and start being the man you want to be.” No one improves by accident. Personal growth doesn’t just happen on its own. And once you’re done with your formal education, you must take complete ownership of the growth process, because nobody else will do it for you… If you want your life to improve, you must improve yourself.”
