You underestimate your capabilities and use very little of your true/hidden potential

You underestimate your capabilities and use very little of your true/hidden potential

Do you know your true potential? What about your children? Do you know their true potentials? And do they themselves know their true potentials?

Chances are that you don’t! And chances are that your children also do not know their true potentials.

Case in Point #3
Some years ago, a prominent church invited me to speak on Life Management; how a person can manage his or her life efficiently and effectively for true fulfilment. At the beginning of the presentation I asked the parents to show by hands how many of them had their parents or someone else qualified enough to guide them systematically through life – as in, explain life to them comprehensively enough; to tell them what was really important where and when, and show them how to organise their lives to be more efficient, make great impact and enjoy true happiness and greatness – when they were growing up; I did not see any hand up. Then I asked to show by hands how many of them wished they had someone guiding them in that manner when growing up, and all the hands went up! That is the situation across the spectrum of society; proper life-coaching is generally missing in our upbringing. And by proper, I mean right, relevant, and sufficient or comprehensive.

That is the situation across the spectrum of society; proper life-coaching is generally missing in our upbringing. And by proper, I mean right, relevant, and sufficient or comprehensive.

It may surprise you to note that, every person born into this world is a genius within. Indeed, every person born into this world has the inborn potential ability to develop an idea, a theory, a company, a product or service that will significantly improve the lives of at least 1 billion people within 10 years, and thus generate wealth beyond what one could possibly spend in a lifetime. Except that most people are oblivious of that.

Note that it is not a potential within some few people; it is a potential within everyone! That means, you have that potential within you (even if you have never been told, felt so within you, nor demonstrated so in anyway over the period) and your children also have that potential within them, even if they may not be demonstrating any such traits at the moment. Sowing the ‘Zing’ seed into them will begin to unearth that true or hidden potential.

But is formal education or schooling not supposed to do that?

Well, surprisingly – perhaps not so surprisinglyformal education or schooling does not. Indeed, formal education or schooling alone cannot! And since detailed discussion of that may require a separate report, suffice it to note for now that, “Education and schooling are not the same thing. What goes on inside the schools is often not education. And the results may well be that it reduces productive capacity rather than to increase it;” as the Nobel laureate Sir William Arthur Lewis succinctly puts it.

It may shock you to note that though the formal education system promises so much, and takes so much of your resources, ordinarily the formal education your children go through may only harness up to just 22 percent of their true or hidden potential; based on studies done by Harvard University, Carnegie Institute for the Advancement of Teaching, etc.

And being religious may add nothing substantial as far as harnessing their true or hidden potential is concerned.

You need to sow the ‘Zing’ seed into them in order for them to start exhibiting that true or hidden potentials that are in them. And sustain that to achieve exceptional or fantastic outcomes.
