Potential is unrealized attainment – nothing more and nothing less…

April 20, 2012 By David Kanigan 1 Comment

I’m a long standing member of the Mike Myatt fan club. Yet, I held off sharing this after trying to talk myself out of it. Contrived…maybe. Heard it before? Certainly. Many times. Believe it? Completely. I thought some of us could use an extra kick this morning to finish off the week…so here it is. I encourage you to click through on this post from Mike Myatt: “The Myth of Potential” to get the full essence of his message. Here’s (more than) a few nuggets:

——————————————————————————–

■We all have potential.
■Many simply choose to do nothing about it
■A rare few will maximize their potential
■(We) are fed a steady diet of potential from the moment we are born
■Potential affords no surety of outcome, it merely offers hope
■While hope can clearly serve as an inspiration, it can also become a delusion
■Leaders should place less stock in potential and focus on effort and outcome
■Cold hard truth is you’re not special because of your potential.
■You’re special because of your dogged pursuit of your potential
■You’re even more special when you achieve your potential.
■We should not be starved for potential leaders, but be very, very hungry for real leaders.
■Smart leaders should be more interested in high character, high achievement, high engagement and high performance than high potential.
■Reward performance not potential.
■Studies show little correlation between potential and actual attained success.
■Studies do show a high correlation between work ethic, performance and success.
■Realizing potential takes focus, determination, and dedication – it takes work.
■Potential is unrealized attainment – nothing more and nothing less.
■Are you committed?
■Are you committed to put in the energy and effort necessary to realize your potential, or will you squander your potential? (Will you talk about it or do it?)
