UNLOCKING YOUR POTENTIAL
By Christine Dion
The key to unlocking your potential and achieving success is also the key to motivation and the keys to happiness. The keys to success in life begin by opening up to the world and taking a chance to believe in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, how can others believe in you? To receive all the rewards, love and success the world has to offer one must be open to the world. This means your heart must be open, effort to reach out must be made and love must be felt in your heart not only for others but for yourself as well. For many a rising star it’s the LOVE of their craft and the desire to be the best that pushes them forward.
This alone will not unlock your true potential and make for a life of success and happiness. True, you are what you think about and attract what you think about, so if all you think about is achieving you will be on your way, but your true potential lies in the love you give to yourself and others.
Many talented people have focused only on achievement and found when true stardom was achieved they felt empty. It’s actually much easier to close yourself away from the world and to feel negative towards yourself and others. It takes effort to open yourself to others and be responsible for your own happiness in life. An open attitude will open doors to a bright future and happy life.
Attitude & Attraction
Your ATTITUDE is reflected in the way you dress, the expression on your face, how you sit and stand (body language), and how you respond to others. When you think about it look in the mirror, catch yourself. Do you look friendly or do you have a negative expression?
Remember your smile! Smiles are contagious. Once you smile you’ll begin to feel better, plus others will catch on and smile back. Life has enough challenges so why make it harder on yourself with a bad attitude. People avoid unhappy cranky people and opportunities are lost because of it.
Remember, others take their cues from you! If you feel good inside, other people can sense it and they will respond positively. “You deserve respect, kindness, and the best, because you treat others that way too!”
Be Your Best Self
Ever hear this? “I don’t care what people think, I’m going to just be myself, if people don’t like it, too bad!” Many people make statements very similar to this. The crazy thing is that the very same people who make these statements are the first ones to make fun of, or pass judgment on others. They can’t help it. It’s part of being human. Think of how many times you made fun of how someone looks or acted. The secret is to turn your individuality into the right attitude. You can still be yourself, but be your best self.
Be thoughtful before you speak. Take time to get to know friends. Allow others in slowly and avoid personal information until you know someone very well. Put yourself into the shoes of your audience, family and friends. What affect are you having on them? Is the reaction positive? Being honest with yourself and being aware is the first step to being a person with conscience.
Learn From Others
Watch and learn from others successes. Watch how those at the top, who have achieved and are where you would like to be, communicate, dress and their body language. There is nothing wrong with having a “mentor” someone you admire that can help guide you in the right direction. You can tell a lot about a person by who their friends are. Choose friends and those you hold close wisely.
Take Time To Learn From Life
Life can feel like a whirlwind! You find yourself so busy running from place to place. Time for yourself alone to reflect is very limited if it exists at all. It’s important to understand that life is a balance and taking time for yourself alone to reflect on things that happened to you throughout the day is essential for your personal growth and inner strength. When you reflect on your actions, and even others, you learn a lot about your inner self. The more you learn the more you grow in confidence. The more confidence you have the more charisma you gain, as well as success.
