Potential doesn’t get you anywhere

I hear a lot about potential- A person has great potential; The potential for the business is incredible; That relationship has a lot of potential; His life is so full of potential

The problem with potential is that it is unrealized attainment. No one has gotten anywhere on potential. What has gotten people places is the unrelenting implementation of potential. Those who succeed are those who do something about it.

Potential keeps our boat in the dock. How do you steer a ship? Not by its rudderl. You steer a ship by getting it moving and keeping it moving. Get out of the dock and into the wide open sea of life.
