We looked at the power of discovery last week. Once you discover your talent, passion and calling, you can begin to see and understand the potential they provide.

Potential is the fourth new attribute. Knowing your potential is one thing. Understanding it is another.

Knowing is knowledge. Understanding is similar but deeper. It goes below knowledge to the depths of the mind where conceptualization and association reside and wait to be unleashed.

Don’t just know your potential. Understand it. Make it as much a part of you and your organization as talent, passion and calling. Envision where you could go and begin to go there. Potential will show itself along the way. At times in order to see or know it, you’ll first have to understand your ability to satisfy it.
