5 Essential Steps to Live Up To Your Potential

5 Essential Steps to Live Up To Your Potential

“It is a tragedy to know that out of over five billion people on this planet today, only a minute percentage will experience a significant fraction of their true potential”

Myles Monroe
Have you found yourself thinking “Is there a meaning to my life?.” “What is the purpose of my existence?”, “Do I have the potential to be more than what I currently am?” “How can I discover my potential?”

During this uncertain time in the world, we are all “social distancing.” It’s not a surprise that most of us are rethinking life. Trying to rediscover ourselves by finding our purpose and passion.

If that’s you, then you have come to the right place! We’ve all asked ourselves these questions at some point. I hope that through this post you can get some clarity and answers to these questions.

So, without further ado, here are the 5 ways that you can unlock your potential. And become the person you were truly meant to be!

Accept yourself

 “Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed and rearranged to relocate us to the place we’re meant to be.”


To accept yourself, you have to let go of your past. Your past might have been hard. You have experienced difficulties or lost yourself somehow.

But there is a purpose and a meaning for your existence.

It is no accident that you are here on this earth.

It doesn’t matter where you came from, from which circumstance or situation. if you are here it’s because there is a reason.

In other words, luck and chance have nothing to do with who you are and the life you are currently living. God put you on this earth with a purpose that only you can fulfill. Once you accept this as true, you can begin to see positive changes in your life.

Believe that you can 

Once you’ve accepted yourself, it’s time to believe you can. Believe you can be successful. Believe you can make it. Whatever your goals are, you can reach them.

Some of you are lawyers, doctors, new product inventors, writers, etc. and you don’t even know it yet. It’s time to step up the game.

Tell yourself “I have a purpose in life that only I can fulfill.” Make these your daily affirmations. The sooner you believe, the sooner you will find success, happiness, and the fulfillment you desire. If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will?

Knock the limits out!

You are full of potential, whether you see it or not. You see, the potential is always present, waiting to be discovered. It demands that you never settle for what you have already accomplished.

 Don’t accept your present state of life as final, because it’s that – a state. 

Whatever may be your limits, knock them out!

If it’s money? SAVE and invest in yourself. There are so many opportunities today to make money. You can sit in your bed and make money nowadays. If it’s a thought that is limiting you, it’s got to be broken today! Whatever your limits might be, knock them out!

Set goals, make plans

Everything in life starts with a thought. It’s always a thought first.

The thought turns into an idea. The next step is to use your imagination.

Imagination helps you to turn the idea into a plan. But until you write it down, it’s still an idea. Once you have a set of goals, make a plan.

Do your research, get knowledge, then set a timeline for when you want to achieve your goals.

Until you set goals and plan, it will always be an idea!

Let’s say you’ve always thought about being a blogger. But you always left it as a thought. Until recently, you started talking with a friend who told you that you are an amazing writer. So you started to imagine what it would be like to have your own blog. Based on this,  do some research and then make a plan with goals for how you’re going to begin your blog.


After you have gone through the first 4 steps,  it’s time to manifest your potential into reality.

Make it happen.

Take action. Take the necessary steps to reach your goals.

If blogging is what you want to do, then set up your website. Start writing, start publishing, and watch your idea turn into reality.

And remember that God is the source of all potential and wisdom. 

Allow Him to guide you, and you will see that you’re unstoppable!

To conclude

So, to reach your full potential, you must first let go of the past and accept yourself as you are.

Then add a little faith, by believing in yourself and knocking out your limits.

And don’t forget to turn your ideas into goals and plans so that you can watch them manifest!

    This is a really great post, it made me realize the i was doing things the wrong way. By leaving my ideas just as ideas, and not write my plans down to execute them.

    Thank you very much Jayne
