Live up to your full potential

By: Rusty Potter

Shirley Chisholm said, “ You don’t make progress by standing on the side lines, whimpering and complaining. You make progress by implementing ideas.” We all have the power to overcome any obstacle we are facing in life. Failure is a temporary condition. Learn and grow from your problems. There are lessons to be learned from all of your mistakes. You can turn your setbacks into your comebacks.

You may have to work harder and longer that some people, but when it takes you longer, you value the results. Remember, you must bounce back stronger, wiser and tougher. Turn your pain into your greatness. Allow your pain to push you from where you are to where you want to be in life. Everyday is a new opportunity for you to show the world your greatness. You must know that each day is full of opportunities. Your current situation is not your final destination. We are only bound by the limits we place on our own minds. Shirley Chisholm also said, “ If they don’t give you a seat at the table bring a folding chair.”
