MakingThe Best Of Your Summer:Five Tips for Unleashing Your Hidden Potential

July 13, 2011


As we approach mid-summer, we can re- create new plans and expectations for our lives. Here a few powerful tips on how to unleash all that you are capable of so that you can ensure happiness and success during these hot and steamy days whether you are changing careers or looking for a job, relocating, or entering or leaving a relationship.

1. Know and Honor Your Values

A fulfilling life is one in which the most important beliefs and values you have are honored each and every day of your life. Your values are already there inside of you. When your values are expressed, life feels more fulfilling. It’s important to recognize the connection between the values you possess and the choices you make in your life. Those choices are filled with positive potential for you when your values are honored.

2. Move Past Your Limiting Beliefs

Self-limiting beliefs are those things you believe about yourself that place limitations on your abilities. They may be conscious or unconscious. Limitations are actually a part of the mind. In reality we have no limitations. Determination always finds a way around obstacles. Henry Ford once said, “If you think you can, or if you think you can’t – you’re right!” It all depends on what you believe about yourself. Unless you begin recognizing your own limiting beliefs and choose not to accept them, they will cause you to fail. When you align the true core of who you are with your goals, you can tap into your fullest potential.

3. Take on Successful Strategies

Success leaves an abundance of clues in its wake. Identify someone who is successful in the same things you want then model what they are doing. What you want could be a great business, relationship or a fit body. Remember, they aren’t lucky; they just have strategies that work.

4. Intensify Your Will Power

Willpower is the ability to exert one’s will over one’s actions. Willpower manifests as inner firmness, decisiveness, determination, resolution and persistence. It’s inevitable that life will hit us with some sort of crushing blow. If you face it head on, it will give you the psychological strength. View it as a gift and find a way to use it.

5. Give to Get

The meaning of our lives is shaped by what we give, not what we get. Many people want to get before they give. Over the long haul, this outlook never works. Instead, focus on creating value for others because when you do this, you will get a return that far exceeds your investment.
