TAKE TIME AND LET IT GROW

When you are looking at a beautiful garden full of fruits, flowers, and vegetables do you just want to dive right in and start picking all of its bounty right away or do you want to continue to let it grow into a more fruitful harvest? There are benefits to picking early and letting it grow some more but it all comes down to the perfect timing when all its goodness is at its peak. You don’t want to pick too early and you don’t want to wait too long. With knowledge and experience you can tell when the right time it is to pick and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Take time to build the foundations you hold dearly in your life. Sometimes things just need a little more time to mature before they are ready. Don’t be in such a big rush to get it all done now. You are not in a hurry, it’s not a race. Have self-discipline in everything that you do so that you don’t cut any corners and miss anything. It’s fine to have goals, hopes, dreams, aspirations, and so forth but you don’t have to achieve it all at once. Take the time to cultivate what needs to and let it grow. Let your relationships grow, let your knowledge grow, let your experience level grow, let your influence grow, and then ultimately watch your impact grow.

POTENTIAL – Leaders look for what something/someone can become, instead of what something/someone is.

We all have POTENTIAL to be greater than we are.  Through dedication, discipline, and hard work we can reach our POTENTIAL if we are willing to sacrifice what it takes to reach it. 

Sadly, most people find a “comfort zone” and never reach their full POTENTIAL.  If we are to grow and develop, we must do things outside of our “comfort zone”. 

Join the conversation.  What are you doing to reach your POTENTIAL or helping someone else reach theirs?
