After realizing that abundant life is using your fullest potential before God, you might probably want to ask how you can achieve your fullest potential.
Where can you find it?
Is your fullest potential something that you learn in school through a college degree?
Do you need to enrol in the world’s most popular and best universities to gain it?
You probably grew up in a society where the familiar and prevailing thought and the norm are that having a college diploma is one’s ticket to success.
Furthermore, getting a master’s degree or specializing in a doctoral program adds to your potential for better opportunities.
In the “commonest” sense, this is true because a person who has attained the highest educational degree gets accolades, recognition and opportunity. More so when that person has achieved so much.
However, some have not even finished high school but were able to gain knowledge through practical life situations. They have significantly achieved more than a person with a PhD.
I am not saying that education is not essential. I want to emphasize that it is only through education that one learns how to meet their fullest potential.
The difference is acquiring knowledge through formal and informal means. How to gain one’s fullest potential is not the monopoly of colleges and universities.
You might have attained all the academic degrees in the world, but you will still end up failing to carry out your fullest potential because you don’t have a personal mission in life.
I learned that knowing one’s mission in life is primary in one’s quest to gain one’s fullest potential before the Lord.
When one has discovered their mission in life, especially at an early age, you will be driven with so much enthusiasm in fulfilling what you want to do.
You have that zest to pursue with diligence what you want to do.
Years ago, I talked to two upcoming first-year college students at Central Philippine University. I learned they wanted to take the nursing course because of their parents’ desire.
They revealed that deep inside, if they had a choice, both wanted to excel in the arts because they have a passion for writing, speaking, and acting.
I believe in the sacredness of supporting children to meet the full potential that God has reserved for them. I suggest that parents must take time to help guide their children to discover their mission in life.
I have been through situations before when I have to wonder and wander about what will I do in life because I don’t know what my mission in life is.
When I met life’s crossroads, I would readily choose any direction I thought was right. I never decided on a life mission serving as my road map to where I am going.
I realized that it was when I discovered and firmed up the life mission that I could confidently pursue my passion and meet my fullest potential before God.
You are wondering and wandering about how to do your fullest potential? Get to know your mission right now.
Are you living to your fullest potential now by the mission that God has revealed to you?
