There are many good reasons to keep improving in life, striving to be the best you can be. In my new book, The Potential Principle, I explain why—especially in today’s fast-paced world—it’s vital to keep growing personally and professionally. I also discuss some important things to consider as you choose the areas you want to improve in and the goals you want to accomplish.
But before I go any further, you have to make a choice. Because nothing I say, in this blog or in the book, will do you any good unless you are intentional.
Nobody gets better “accidentally.” Only wine improves with age without trying.
How much do you want to get better? Teachers can teach you, coaches can coach you, and motivational speakers can pump you up but it is what you do with the information that matters.
Ongoing improvement requires a process and is based on principles you correctly and consistently apply. The exciting thing is, when you are intentional and take action, the door to your future swings wide open! Your willingness to work at improving yourself is the secret to realizing your full potential.
If you’ll supply the commitment, I’ll show you how to channel your energy to get results. And as you move purposefully to pursue your potential, using new ideas and techniques, your effort will start to pay off. It’s well worth it.
Not only will it benefit you, but it will also benefit the people around you. Your customers will be happier. Your boss will be impressed. And your family will see you at your best—the spouse and parent you really want to be.
So, you have a choice to make. Are you content coasting along, content with the status quo? Or are you ready to make your best even better? The Potential Principle proves that not only is better possible but it is necessary.
Today’s world is fast-moving and competitive—and full of amazing possibilities for anyone willing to give their all. I love to work with people who are looking to be better than their best, and I’m hoping you’re one of them.
I can’t wait to share more insights with you from my new book. Now the ball is in your court.
