Why People Do Not Reach Their Potential

In personal and professional development it's my belief that everyone has a seed of success within them. It's also true that few ever realize their success potential.
Why is that?
Here are four reasons why people who are poised for success may not reach their potential, and how you can apply some simple truths to experience your own break through.

Many people make choices that limit them. As the saying goes "There is a choice you have to make, in everything you do. So keep in mind, that in the end, the choice you make, makes you."
But aren't there talented people? Yes, and it's their talent and right choices make a talented person.
As Socrates said "To move the world, we must first move ourselves."
Many people have no idea the process of reaching their potential would take so long. All things are difficult before they become easy.
It's it true that projects usually:
- Are more difficult than we anticipate
- Take longer than we anticipate
- Cost more than we anticipate
As you've probably discovered, shortcuts don't pay off in the long run, so prudent planning and a realistic estimate of time required to complete a project, develop a new skill or reach a goal is an excellent step in the right direction.
Many people fail to pay the price that their potential demands.
Often times, our challenges in life are not in understanding how to reach our potential, but rather they are in doing what it takes to get there.
Charles Schwab said, "When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do."
Many people fail to think creatively when problems arise.
There's a difference between problem spotting and problem solving. Anyone can spot a problem, be it an issue in a relationship, a technical issue or a health issue. The counsel of experts is relied upon as they know how to provide a solution to a difficult problem.
The next time you mention a problem, why not follow that up by suggesting 3 possible solutions, with one of them including you?
Break through and reach new heights in your personal and professional development by making good choices, realistically assessing the time needed to reach your goals, paying the price when it's asked of you and meeting problems with solutions.
