Life is a journey of self confidence and self-discovery and to figure out what truly keeps us alive. We all have a unique gift and an internal map that naturally guide us in the direction we were all born to follow. It is intuitive, yet we all seem to face a common dilemma, which stop us all from ever fully realizing our true potential…

Life’s complications and distractions can never be avoided and is perhaps what stops most of us from ever fully exploring what we truly are as human beings. But above all else, we are all unique in our own way. And it is our duty to find out what it is.

We often feel overwhelmed by life’s forward momentum, which becomes difficult to truly know where we are due to feeling disoriented and unfulfilled. It is arguably the main reason why many of us fail to recognize who we truly are as individuals and often lack the feeling of satisfaction and internal growth. In order to fully realize who we are, we need to pause and re evaluate our life’s purpose. Here are 3 strategies to help discover your potential.

Listen to your gut

When living your daily life, become conscious of your thoughts and emotions and start to take an interest with how you’re feeling in the present moment. If you get a feeling of uneasiness or a ‘butterflys in the stomach’ feeling in your current situation. It is your gut telling you that something is wrong and requires a change in direction. Your true essence knows where you should be heading. But due to the pressures of life, it is sometimes difficult to notice it. Take a step back and start to listen to your physiology. If you feel a sense of satisfaction with your current environment, you know you’re on the right path.

Use your natural talent as a guide

We were all born with a natural ability, which is a symbol for our unique blueprint as individuals. It is a resource that we must use to effortlessly pave the way towards our personal liberation and in achieving our maximum potential. If you have yet to find what it is, find out what truly inspires and fascinates you to get moving in your life. What does ‘your gut’ tell you? Your talent is a beacon for discovering where your destiny lies. Use it to guide you. You may discover things about yourself that might fascinate you.

Have faith in your journey

Whatever path you choose to take in your life, it is important to have faith that things will eventually work out. If you truly feel that the path you’re taking is in line with your purpose, but lack certainty of where it will lead, it is life’s way of telling you that your journey will be worth it. Nothing in life is predictable. The unknown is perhaps what keeps us all alive and motivated to push forward. It is after all the journey that makes life worth living and not the destination.

Nothing in life is easy. Understanding this will hopefully give you a hint that the journey towards discovering your true potential is all worth while as it’s not the destination that changes you, but the journey itself. Embrace the unknown and have faith that your inner resources and natural abilities will help guide you in the direction you were born to follow. It is what will make you truly fulfilled.
