From January 11-28, 18 days, I was on a no food water-only fast. I don’t share this to solicit praise (or sympathy). I’ve neglected the blog for a while and wanted you to know the reason. Why does it you ask? For spiritual, health, and emotional reasons. It was hard harder than I thought it would be but I did it.
In December I created some very BIG, audacious life plans I want to achieve in the next 10 years then broke them down into yearly, monthly, weekly, daily activities & habits and knew I needed to dig deep within myself to find resilience, courage, & energy to achieve everything on the list. So I decided a fast would renew, reinvigorate & discipline me for the exciting adventures I would face in the coming months daily living out my dreams.
The Results of the Fast:
- A 15-pound weight loss.
- Daily cravings for chocolate and other sweets curbed considerably.
- Closer relationship with God.
- New meal & exercise plans.
- New changes on the horizon for this blog.
- Other awesome insights to numerous to list here (but will share in the coming weeks).
I enrolled in an online 6-month leadership course it requires that I read four books written by the leader of this fabulous training, Myles Munroe: Unleash Your Potential, Understanding Your Potential, Releasing Your Potential, and Maximizing Your Potential.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve read the word “potential” in the last 6 weeks. To help ingrain the definition into my brain I wrote this … (thank you Webster’s dictionary for your contribution).
Hello, my name is Potential. I live inside of you, I am… dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success, hidden talents, capped capability.
I am all you can be but have not yet become, I am all you can do, but have not yet done, I am how far you can reach, but have not yet reached, I am what you can accomplish, but have not yet accomplished.
If only you would allow me to fully unleash all the constrained positive energy that is within you. Your deepest desires, wants, dreams, and goals, all bottled up, whirling in your head, written on paper that’s me Potential. I’m trying to communicate to you, giving the green light to go for it (whatever “it” maybe). Do it. Build it. Give it. Grow it. Live it. Share it. Believe it.
My name is Potential. I am dormant ability, reserved power, untapped strength, unused success, hidden talents, a capped capability it’s time you set me free.”
Next time I will address a way to set potential free. Have you been successful in moving from potential to real success? How did you do it?
