Here are four principles to put you on the road to growing toward your potential:
1. Concentrate on one main goal. Nobody ever reached their potential by scattering themselves in twenty directions. Reaching your potential requires focus.
2. Concentrate on continual improvement. Commitment to continual improvement is the key to reaching our potential. Each day you can become a little bit better than you were yesterday.
3. "We can't gain any momentum moving toward tomorrow if we are dragging the past behind us." Maybe you've made a lot of mistakes in your life, or you've had an especially difficult past. Work your way through it and move on.
4. Focus on the future. You can become better tomorrow than you are today. As the Spanish proverb says, "He who does not look ahead remains behind."
