As human beings, all of us possess tremendous potential, but we usually only use a small portion of our true power. If we were to tap our fullest potential, will be we able to achieve so much more in our lives. The only thing that stops us from unleashing our full potential are the beliefs and confidence we have in ourselves.
Have you had dreams, desires and ambitions in the past BUT you never had the courage to go for them? Have many people (friends, teachers, parents) been discouraging you and killing your dreams?
How much more success can you achieve in your life if you start believing in yourself, develop self confidence just go for your dreams?
A great lesson we can learn is one from Christopher Maloney. For many years, he dreamed of being a singer. However, he never had the courage to participate in any contest because everyone told him that he sounded bad and that he would make a fool of himself.
When the X Factor Singing competition came to the UK, he filled in the application form, only to tear it up and throw it away because he was so afraid he would fail. He did for a few years UNTIL one day, he found enough courage to go for the contest.
Watch his audition and see how Chris overcame his fears and gave the performance of his life!
Chris waited 34 years before daring to pursue his dreams. How about you? How many years are you going to let your fear stop you from pursuing your dreams? How much longer are you going to allow the people around you to hold you back from being the best you can be?
