Limitless Potential Everywhere

by Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit) on May 12, 2013

Everyone on this planet; every last one of us, has something special to give one another.

The bank teller, your best friend, the gas station attendant, your boss, your brother, the person ahead of you in the grocery line, the kid opposite you on the train, your mom, your sister, that person in accounting that drives you crazy….

Quote-Line2

Every person in our lives, no matter how brief their role, are seeds of opportunity bursting with limitless potential.

Quote-Line2

The potential to learn something about ourselves, to create beauty in our lives, to shift our perception, to inspire us, to enliven us, to brighten us.

Seeing the natural good in others, I would imagine, could help us feel…

part of something larger than ourselves.

heard by everyone.

connected to everything.

free to live without a to do list.

like we’re riding the flow of life.

open to help.

ready for love.

primed to listen.

That’s totally the life I want to live. So, I’m making a promise to myself today, right now. You with me?

I am going to see the potential in everyone. I’m going to imagine their brilliance and be open to connecting with them. A smile, a conversation, a friendship… I am going to be open to it all.

Are you in?

Oh my goodness I was just saying something similar to this to my husband yesterday! I am in! I want to retrain my way of thinking to look for the good in people and to stop judging others :-)

It is my weekly goal to make eye contact at everyone. I reinforce this by advising my K-3rd grade students that if they aren’t feeling the best, it helps to practice smiling, even at their saddest. I know that we can’t be friends with all but we have to release the inner child that loves, helps and is curious to reach our own potential.

I am totally IN! There is a tide turning and this is the message that those who are willing to listen are hearing and sharing. I feel it deeply and am done hiding and ready to shine my own unique light, because it is needed, just like all of our bright selves are! Thank you for doing what you do. Blessings.

Here is a poem I came across several years ago which really spelled it all out for me.
I started to say it several times a time and amazing things began to happen.

“I bargained with life for a penny

and life would pay no more,

however, I begged at evening

when I counted my scanty store;

For life is a just employer

he gives you what you ask

but, once you have set the wages

why, you must bear the task;

I worked for a menial’s hire

only to learn dismayed

that any wage I had asked of life,

life would have willingly paid.”

Hi Brittany! Thanks for the shout out. Just went over to check out your blog, well done. Looks like the link you’re using in the post is the link to your comment on my post and not the post itself. Not sure if you meant to do that! Thanks again for sharing my work with your posse ;)
