Unlocking potential

Locked doors

It is no secret here that I believe in the potential of people. Whether coaching, training or teaching, I seem to spend much time encouraging folk to be themselves, step out from their own shadow and, in unlocking potential, claim their place centre stage in their world.

Unlocking potential by definition has to be a proactive activity. We can’t expect the proverbial door to be opened, so to speak, without us at least knocking on it. To quote the words of Churchill on the subject of unlocking potential: Continuous effort not strength or intelligence is the key to unlocking our potential.”

And once the potential has been unlocked? If we are living up to our potential, being our best, comparisons with others becomes pointless. No more can be asked of ourselves and whatever we achieve in this state surely represents a personal triumph.

Or maybe not. As ever, these are just a few ideas set out for the sake of reflection. To join the conversation on the issue of unlocking potential, please leave a comment below.

Warmest regards.

Brian.
