One of the most common things I hear is, “It’s amazing you turned out like you did.” Given those who know me well, know tid-bits of stories from my childhood which could be mistaken for the source of a Lifetime television movie, I get the comment.
Being the curious person I am, I have often wondered how did I turn out the way I did versus others I know who are living in more challenging circumstances? Then I also wonder, how can I do better? Am I at my living at my full potential? Am I where I’m meant to be? As I mentioned before, I’m curious, and as I result I’m constantly searching for information to help me answer these questions and give me the tools to reach the next level.
There are some people who say things like, “hope you are enjoying your good fortune” or “you are one of the lucky ones”, really? Am I? Is it really luck? Is it possible there are actual reasons, actual steps, I may have taken consciously or subconsciously to end up where I am, versus those who were not as “fortunate” or “lucky”? The fact is, despite how well I am perceived to be doing, I don’t feel like I have reached my full potential. I have no doubt I still have skills left to master and mountains left to climb to get where I’m ultimately meant to be.
In this blog, I want to explore the path to a good life, the path to maximizing one’s potential, and the realities of life we all share. They say it takes 10,000 hours to make someone an expert. If that is the case, I’ve got this topic covered. Follow me and see if you agree. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
