Unleashing More of Your Potential: Three Keys

Published on September 29, 2015 by

In the past several years I’ve worked with several organizations that are leaders in their industries. The individuals and teams I coached or trained are doing well and they know it.

They also know they have more potential and they want to know how to unleash more of it. That’s why a noted health organization has asked me for the third year in a row to deliver my “Leader as Coach” workshop for their leaders.

I’ve worked with private clients who are incredibly talented and self-motivated, yet knew they could unleash more of their hidden potential. I’ve also worked with couples who have transformed their relationship more than they thought was possible.

You can read about some of these clients on my website where they have described what it was like finding out how to become more aware of their potential and unleash it.

Why am I telling you this?

Because we’re talking about how to tap into more of your potential.

How can you do that, meaning, how can you tap into more of your potential than you are already doing?

The truth is, it’s different for different people and it’s different for each team or company.

However, if we’re talking generalities, here are three things you need to tap into more of your inner greatness and potential:

Higher Self-Awareness:

What do you really want in life? Do you have a dream or a deep desire you've buried underneath the daily demands and routines of your life?

Do you know what makes you feel most alive, worthy and powerful?

What are your core strengths and values—and how focused are you on them throughout the day?

Is there anything you are avoiding in life, that you don't want to think about or deal with and therefore distract yourself from facing it?

What are your current blind-spots?

Deeper Sense of Self-Worth:

This is a tricky one because most people don’t understand how their self-worth plays out in their life and work.

The more we tie our self-worth to our work, achievements, mistakes and failures, body image, finances, the more we struggle with our self-worth.

As we recognize our self-worth and nurture it, we feel more at peace, confident and aware of what we really want in life. We also put ourselves in the position of being able to receive more abundance in life in all forms.

Stronger Self-Confidence:

In psychology we call this “self-efficacy.” It’s the belief we are capable of succeeding in any specific situation. It’s what keeps us from feeling overly frustrated or overwhelmed when circumstances challenge us.

Our level of self-confidence is what motivates us to step up in life or to stay at the same level we’re at.

“The Happiness, Success and Fulfillment Trifecta.”

Self-Awareness, Self-Confidence and Self-Worth are what I call “The Happiness, Success and Fulfillment Trifecta.” If you have all three of these growing and flourishing you will feel an incredible amount of positive energy and flow in your life.

To unleash more of your potential, focus on and nurture your self-awareness, self-worth and self-confidence. Make sure every day you work on at least one of these areas and grow it, even if just a bit. It won’t seem to make a difference that day but over a period of several weeks it will make a difference.

If you want help with this to accelerate your progress, call or email me today. My coaching enables you to grow your Self-Awareness, Self-Confidence and Self-Worth. You’ll get the feedback, support and challenge you need to speed up your ability to unleash more of your inherent potential.

If you’re not ready for that, read something every day from my book Seven Secrets to Enlightened Happiness: Your Guide to the Life You Were Meant to Live. It’s available in both kindle form and softcover and it will change your life one day at a time. Get it here: http://amzn.to/1iIs8VE

    WOW! The timing of this post is intense. Just this morning I had written in my journal that I want to learn more about my sense of self, where it comes from and what it's all about. Boom! Your post delivered!

    I particularly liked the part about self-efficacy - "the belief we are capable of succeeding in any specific situation." I needed that. There's so much stuff in this article, I feel like I could spend a week on it going over it and over it again. I like the encouragement to keep at it daily, and the reminder not to get discouraged if you don't see monumental progress after one day.

    Thanks!
