Have you ever asked yourself, “what do I really want in life?” So many persons are on a journey of self discovery, yet only few find themselves. With every passing day, students pursue irrelevant things and fail to realize what they really want in life. Until you know what you really want in life, life will not give you what you deserve.
If you must make an impart in destiny, you must discover yourself. So many students are living without clear vision and understanding of what they really want in life. It is not enough to score an “A” in life. In fact, you can pass very well in class and still end up a failure in life. Life will not give you what you deserve but what you continually place demand on.
If I may ask, what do you really want in life? I have asked so many minds the same question. Many of them had good ideas. However, only a few knew what they really wanted in life. In this article, I will take you through the 8 steps to discover your potentials and become your best.
8 Steps To Discover Your Life Potentials
1. Understand your heart connection
When I talk about the heart connection, I mean your hearts greatest desire. You look, and will always look like your mind. If you must discover your potential, you have to first answer the question of the mind. Now ask yourself this question, “what is the deepest desire of my heart?”.
Most times, your heart’s desire is your life desire. Your life desire is the key to what you really want in destiny. Many dreams are shattered, not because they are hired or cheaper, just because they are not ordered. Understand your heart connection. That’s where it all begins.
2. Understand your Passion
Action needs passion, or it will be sanctioned. Understand your passion and let it find expression. The second step to discover your potential is to find out what stirs your passion. If I may also ask, what stirs your passion?
Being passionate requires hard work, focus and the willingness to fail over and over again. If you want to really be passionate, the five steps below will help:
- Learn more about passion.
- Get advice and insight from those who dream the same.
- Set targets and work hard to make them a reality.
- Have what you really stand for.
- Share your passion with others.
3. Understand What gives you Joy
This is the third step to discover your potential. It is a very simple truth you must not fail to tell yourself. What do you enjoy doing most that you forget to eat? Remember, telling yourself the truth is honesty and telling others is integrity. The truth you tell yourself here is what will determine your level of self discovery and fulfillment.
4. Understand your natural ability
Having understood your passion and what gives you joy, it is time to understand what you are naturally able to do. The truth of the matter is that, whatever you were designed and manufactured to do will feel natural when you do it. Can you quickly answer this question, what naturally flows out of you?
5. Understand what you do well
Ever wondered how you achieve what take others time easily? that’s exactly what I am talking about. Although others find it complex, it will be simple for you. Jot down the gifts that people commend you for. Know where you produce good results without stress. Ask yourself. “What do people say I do well?”
6. Understand your dreams
Your dream is what determines your drive. When I talk about dream, I do not mean the metaphysical dream. I mean the Luther King’s definition. The best time to dream is when your eyes are open. Begin to find out the ideas, visions, and dreams that are impossible to get out of your mind.
7. Understand what you can sacrifice
It is yet another time to embark on critical reasoning. If you knew you would not fail and you had all the power you will ever need, what would you do? difficult question right! You have to answer this with utmost care and sincerity of heart. If will help you discover what you really want in life. Let me ask you another question, to what can you give 100% of your time?
8.Understand the place of a mentor
Like I always say, the absence of mentor is the presence of tormentors. Have a mentor. A mentor is someone who will help you cultivate your greatest joy, interest or talent. They are persons who you dream to be like. A good mentor can help you identify and even fulfill your potential. Walk to that person now and say, “I want you to be my mentor”.
