There’s 7.4 billion people who currently exist in this world. All with different beliefs. All with different goals. All who view themselves differently and who each have their own unique place in this world. Some of which have become well known names, some who may be your local shopkeeper or store assistant at your local clothes store. Scary right?
However, I have realised that a large number of people in this world fail to see their own potential- including myself. I have recently left college and finished doing A Levels. I have no wish to study at university yet, so I’m having a year out. When I first left college, I was worried about how I was going to spend this year off and what I was going to do with my life. After all, there’s so many opportunities out there, but am I really good enough for any of them?
Granted, I now know what I want to do now and have a desire for achieving my own goals.I want to go into journalism, keep writing blog posts, and just using blogging as a platform to express myself and make a change in this utterly dark and negative world. I’m starting to find my own potential, and it’s one of the most liberating feelings.
However, this blog post is about you finding your potential if you haven’t found it yet. In fact, I knew someone who I used to be close to in my life who didn’t know their own potential. They believed they were destined for a lot less than what they deserved, which could’t be further from the truth. They put themselves down and didn’t see how special they are to this world. And guess what? You’re exactly the same.
Look at the bigger picture for a moment. Look at your amazing qualities, and what you love doing. Maybe you love putting your thoughts into writing like me, want to make a change in this world, or even something as simple as loving sport, fashion or music. The world is your oyster. There are so many amazing opportunities out there, you just have to be determined and grab them.Determinism is key. It may sound like such a cliche, but if you think about it, you can do anything if you put your mind to it. In my opinion, this is your own life and you only live it once. Grab opportunities and live with no regrets.
Want to know a secret? Nothing is impossible. Trust me, it took a long time for me to realise this too. I used to think that I would never create a blog because I’m not good enough. I got put off being a music artist manager because I believed that I wasn’t good enough. I had such a negative outlook without actually realising that no one is perfect. Everything you do is a learning process, and you get better every day, so don’t think you’re not good enough at something that you aspire to do.
Start from today. Work on a plan. Google your dream job, or work on opening that independent shop you’ve wanted to for so long. You can do anything if it’s what you really want. No excuses. Just do it. The worst thing that can happen is you don’t reach for your life aspirations, and you live your life in regret… and who really wants to live their life with regrets?
Feel free to also comment below your dream job, or your goals that you aim to achieve in the next couple of years. This is a massive world with so many great chances, you just have to take risks and do what you’ve always wanted to. Know your potential- because you have more to offer this world than you think.
