Potential is an ability or capability with the possibility of being or becoming something.
In his book, 9 Things A Leader Must Do, Dr. Henry Cloud wrote, “One of the worst things you can die with is potential.”
What is our potential? How do we achieve our greatest potential? Reaching our potential requires risk, and that can be a bit uncomfortable.
Cloud also claims that “potential is something to be realized, not guarded or protected. So, dig it up! Invest it!”
Maximizing our potential enables us to help others reach their potential. Spiritually, when the potential of God’s people is unleashed, we will change the world.
