Raise your sights, explore new possibilities and push back your limitations

With today’s pressure to achieve, the thought that you might not be living up to your potential is a frightening one. And of course, this fear makes it even less likely that you will achieve what you want to, if you let it paralyse you.

Those who go on to great success in life are the ones who are not afraid to try new things.

The ones who grasp opportunity in a vice-like grip and don’t let go until they have wrung every drop of possibility from it.

Those who achieve actively seek out new challenges and relish them when they occur, purely because they enjoy the feeling. But for those who aren’t so naturally thrill-seeking, a less positive approach to new opportunities can make things difficult.

Often, they experience a negative inner voice, undermining them, expecting poor outcomes and putting them off even trying in the first place. The result of this of course, is that with nothing ventured, little is gained.

They fail to learn from failure because they never get the chance. They miss out on successes because they fail to try.

Achieving your potential will helps you feel more positive about the opportunities in life and will motivate you to seek out new experiences and challenges.

Thank you Raman Sir, for yet another brilliant and educational posting.

I want to present a small poem, so here it is....

You Can Be Whatever You Want To Be!

There is inside you
all of the potential
to be whatever you want to be,
all of the energy
to do whatever you want to do.

Imagine yourself as you would like to be,
doing what you want to do,
and each day, take one step
towards your dream.

And though at times it may seem too
difficult to continue,
hold on to your dream.

One morning you will awake to find
that you are the person you dreamed of,
doing what you wanted to do,
simply because you had the courage
to believe in your potential
and to hold on to your dream.

Source unknown

Thanking you
Barkha Jain

Well presented by Raman and Barkha.

The trouble for not achieveing potential is that  we carry  "false beliefs" in our subconscious minds for years or decades (in many cases without even being aware of having them.

Identify these false beliefs

Clear them from their roots (in the subconscious)

Manifest the success you truly deserve and focus on what you will do with this potential once dicovered.

The Law of Detachment

We've often heard how many people seek 'security' in their lives. Financial security, security in relationships, national security, etc. What most people don't realize though is: "The search for security is an illusion." What does this really mean?

The Law Of Detachment states that in order to attain anything in the Universe, you have to let go of your attachment to it. This does not mean giving up your goals or dreams. All this means is that you give up your attachment to them.

The need for security is based on fear - fear of not having enough. But where does this fear come from? (And what can we do about it?) The ego-mind (the one that thinks it needs security in order to survive) puts us into "If I get enough of 'x' (money, love, possessions, etc) then I'll feel secure" cat and mouse games. I say "cat and mouse" games because anything you chase after will surely elude you, or even when you do finally 'catch' it, you'll notice it STILL doesn't satisfy your appetite for 'more.'

Another way of saying this is when you choose to 'tune-in' to your Spirit, where your true potential comes from, and you discover that attachment comes from fear, you can heal the fear - once and for all. Not that you'll never have fear again, but that you'll know what to do about the fear (and discover it's lesson that it holds for you.)

Many years ago, I found a book called 'Money Love' by Jerry Gillies and I learned some startling wisdom on wealth vs. poverty consciousness. My favorite quote by Gillies is:

"No amount of money ever cured a poverty consciousness"

Interesting quote, eh? What Gillies is saying is that if we are attached to the thought that money will solve our problems, then we're doomed to repeat the same cycle of 'it's never enough' in our lives. Have you ever noticed this in your life? After you finally get the 'perfect job,' the 'perfect love,' the 'perfect customer,' that 'big deal' closed, enough money 'stuffed away,' that 'better body' ... does having 'it' really satisfy you? Or do you still long for 'more'?

The list is endless and each desired outcome can cause pain and suffering, UNLESS we let go of our attachment to the outcome. When you detach from your desire, you allow your Spirit and all of the Universe to contribute energy and inspiration to your desire - which allow much greater possibilities to unfold. However, when you focus in too hard (attachment) on a desired outcome, you keep the energy rigid, inflexible, static, and stagnant.

When you let go of what you desire - when you consciously decide that you do not 'need it' in order to complete you, you will have what you desire and more. Why? Because by letting go of the known - the past (based on conditioning) - you allow all potential 'Soul-utions' to present themselves, like having your own board of advisors to consult with whenever you have a major challenge or problem in your life.

So, what do you do in order to let go of the outcome? Tune into your feelings and learn from your fears. Take this moment, now, and close your eyes, take a deep breath, and tune into a fear you have and ask your fear:

"What do you need?" (ask toward the inside of yourself, not on the 'outside') and then let the true potential come out , radiate and help you be the winner you always wanted to be.

Raman, Barkha & Madure, Thanks for the excellent input. "They fail to learn from failure because they never get the chance. They miss out on successes because they failed to try." is really thought provoking. B. Gayathri
