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

Do you know your true potential? Chances are that you don’t! And that you underestimate your capabilities and may be achieving very little of your true or hidden potential abilities, especially your brain power.

Let us get back to the ‘Squares’ exercise; how many squares are there? How many squares were you able to make out in total?

If you got 16, that is usually expected; you might be like most people. If you got up to 21, then congratulations! But you could do much better. It is possible to make out far more than 21 squares.

You were to scroll down towards the bottom of the page till you see a button labelled ‘Squares’ then click on that button and follow the instructions there. Did you? If you did then you already have seen all the squares. By the way, this exercise is most helpful if it is your first time at it but if you have seen it before, then just cast your mind back to how you fared the first time you tried it. If you have not, then please do it now, and see all the possible squares.

In any case, there is 97 out of 100 chances (97 percent probability) that you achieve far less than 10 percent of your true potential. It so happens that for every 100 people selected at random, 97 underestimate their capabilities and thus achieve so little – far less than 10 percent – of their true or hidden potential.

You see, you were born a normal child with every potential in you, because you have a brain. Your brain is at the core of your potential. What is most exciting about it is that the fundamental power or potential capabilities of your brain is just like that of any great achiever you know of or can think of; like… The Wright Brothers (Inventors of the Aeroplane), Steve Wozniak (Inventor of the Apple Computer), Albert Einstein (The Great Theoretical Physicist), Francis Allotey (The Great Mathematician), Herman Chinery-Hesse (The Computer Software Guru), Bright Simons (The mPedigree Goldkeys Innovator), Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Isaac Newton, Wolfgang Mozart, Nicola Tesla, etc. That said, nobody knows the maximum potential in you, because the examples cited are not the limits, but just inspirations.

Indeed, “Man was designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness;” to quote Zig Ziglar.

Our brains are so powerful! What is sad however is that Scientists estimate that most persons, during lifetime, use the brain to achieve just about one-hundredth of 1 percent of what the brain is capable of achieving. In other words, if the brain is capable of achieving 10,000, what most people achieve with it is just 1 out of the 10,000. It is like having one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers in the world (like the Jaguar or the Sunway TaihuLight, or even the IBM Summit) and only using it as a clock to display the time! How does that feel?

To illustrate further, assuming that this white cylinder shown (or say a tin of milk of standard size) is what the brain is capable of achieving throughout your lifetime on earth, then ordinarily, what you are likely to achieve with it is the green speck shown against the yellow cylinder (the size of a standard toothpick). The yellow cylinder (with the cut-out in it) represents the comparative proportion of what you are likely to refuse to use your brain for: the books that will not be written, the businesses that will never be created, the theories that will remain unknown, the happiness, health and wealth that you may refuse to create, and so on! Because that is what mostly happens unless you do implement the recommendations in this presentation. Note that this is mainly about what one ordinarily ends up using the brain to achieve as against what it was created to be capable of achieving if put to maximum use.

Interestingly, what you attempt or do in life depends on what you know as your capabilities. And though you were created as an amazing being with extreme power or abilities, you may have been socialised to become the ‘regular’ person you currently are. Usually, we go through life without being made fully aware of this innate power.

The movie Akeelah and the Bee left such a deep impression on me because of the “Our Deepest Fear” poem rendered by Keke Palmer who played the role of Akeelah. The original by Marianne Williamson says…

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Nobody knows the maximum potential in you; it is so huge! As for your minimum potential, I have a fair idea: right now, just as you are right now, you have inside of you 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 you could possibly spend in a lifetime.

It is inborn potential (already inside of you) given by your creator just before you were born. You do not need to pray to receive it; it has already been given to you. It is basically the least of the true or hidden potential in everyone – and thus, including your good self – and not just some other privileged few. Yes! That is the case even if you have neither ever been told, never felt so within you, nor demonstrated so in anyway over the period. (Please read all that again). You just need to take the needed steps to bring that potential out to achieve amazing feats and fantastic rewards. And a major step is in Personal Development; thankfully, you are on course.

Kindly identify the objects in the photograph above; what are they? What about the items in the photograph below: what are they?

Whenever and wherever I conduct this exercise, people readily and correctly identify the objects in the second photograph as diamonds; the challenge has always been those in the first photograph. Interestingly, those in the first photograph are also diamonds, except that they have not been polished; they are diamonds in the rough. With some fair amount of polishing, those in the first photograph can get to be like those in the second photograph; their ‘diamondness’ is already present in them, but unseen just because they have not been polished.

Truly, “It is not what you are that holds you back, it is what you think you are not.”

You are also a ‘diamond in the rough.’ And the best way to undergo serious polishing is through Personal Development. In Section Four of this training, especially in Step 1 of the 7 powerful secrets to unlock and unleash your true or hidden potential speedily and effectively, you get to actualise the amazing creative thinking process you can immediately apply to harness so much more of your brain power. So that you can become the true you.

About Courses

Courses are also also known as a workshops. Courses (or workshops) are made up of lessons, topics, and quizzes; the main components which constitute the Course Content, along with preambles or intros.

Genuinely cannot afford a paid course? No problem, we’ve got a scholarship/sponsorship package* for you; you may scroll further down to apply. *Terms & Conditions apply.

Typical Course Page

A typical course or workshop page looks like illustrated below; it has course title, display picture, author info, help buttons, course preamble, course content (also called course outline), enrollment panel, etc…

The Course Content usually comes after a brief intro or preamble to the course. Note however, that the course intro or preamble could be included in the Course Content itself, in which case there may not be a separate preamble before the course content.

Where they occur, topics are subsets or sub-components of lessons. There could be quizzes for various topics, and/or lessons. And/or a final quiz for the overall course. These main course content components are hyperlinks or clickable links. They could further be separated into different sections, with section headings which are not hyperlinks or clickable links, but just labels.

To access a particular lesson or topic (or quiz, where applicable) you usually have to click it. When you do it should open to a page where the actual material or presentation (be it a lesson, a topic, or quiz) can then be seen, along with associated navigation buttons to help you navigate through the entire course.

Please take particular note of the enrollment panel which comes immediately after the Course Content or Course Outline. You may use that to enrol. More about that further below; you may scroll further down.

Though not illustrated in the above screenshot, a brief profile of the author, trainer or instructor is usually further below the page; usually after the social buttons and a repeat of the course title for relational appreciation.

Typical Lesson Page

A typical lesson page looks like illustrated below; it has lesson title, display picture, author info, progress bar, lesson preamble, lesson content, navigation buttons, etc…

For emphasis, do note that topics for a lesson (and quizzes, where applicable) are usually listed under Lesson Content as hyperlinks or clickable links; possibly after a preamble for the Lesson. Possibly, because a Lesson may or may not have a preamble.

Again, to access a topic (or quiz, where applicable) you usually need to click it. And it should open to a page where the actual material or presentation (be it a topic, or quiz) can then be seen, along with associated buttons to help you navigate through the entire lesson (and course).

Typical Topic Page

Of special interest is the “Mark Complete” button. Whenever you are sufficiently done with or have completed a sub-topic or a lesson that does not have sub-topics, you need to tell the system so, for the purpose of tracking your progress. You therefore have to click the “Mark Complete” button.

Please note that when in a sub-topic you cannot move directly to the next lesson; you will have to click back to the parent lesson before moving to the next lesson from there.

Note also that you are required to enroll into a course before you can take take the full course. More about enrollment further below.

Access to Lessons and Topics

It is important to note that in certain situations, especially when you have not logged in, or when you have logged in but have not enrolled into that particular course or workshop, the links may not work as expected but rather show a notice that says: “You don’t currently have access to this content” (white on a blue background). In that case you have to log in first, which requires that you must have registered already or otherwise you have to register and enroll; you may click here for more about Registration.

Sometimes you may see a ‘SAMPLE LESSON’ label by a lesson, similar to as shown below…

Any lesson labelled this way can be viewed even when you have not enrolled or even logged in; when you click on any such lesson it will open so that you can preview it.

Now, on the issue of enrollment, if you logged in, and a progress bar similar to the one below was on the course page, usually above the course preamble, then you are already enrolled…

If so please close this window, and then click the applicable lesson, topic, or quiz under the ‘Course Content’ on the course page to proceed with the course. 

If you have logged in and still seeing the notice that says: “You don’t currently have access to this contentthen you need to enroll into that course in order to gain full access; see below…

How to enroll

If there was no progress bar on the course page, then you should find the Enrollment Panel with a ‘NOT ENROLLED’ indicator similar to the one above; usually located below the Course Content or Course Outline on the main course page, and not the popup course outline. As earlier illustrated further above. Please take particular note.

In that case you have to click the ‘Login To Enroll‘ button (for free courses) or the ‘Take this Course‘ button (for paid courses) or similar text beneath the ‘Get Started’ inscription; on the course page. Most free courses still require that you should first login with your username and password. If you don’t have a password for this community website, please register; General (Entry) level registration is FREE! And takes just 2 minutes, in 2 steps. You may click the “Register” button below:

After clicking the said applicable button or text as indicated above, the ‘NOT ENROLLED’ indicator should disappear, and the progress bar should appear on the course page. That indicates that you are now enrolled. You can then click the applicable lesson, topic, or quiz under the ‘Course Content’ on the course page to proceed with the course.

So in the diagram, how many squares did you make out in total; how many squares are there?

Well, most people get or give 16 as their answer. Some get 17 and a few get 21; and that’s at least better than the ‘16’ answer majority of people give. Just about 1 percent of people surveyed get the best answer; which is…

Well, get a full illustration of all the more than 21 possible ‘hidden’ squares…
