You will never live up to your potential, and neither will I.

Potential, like an ethical life, is something that we pursue even though we are destined to fail. Nobody has the will power and drive to focus solely on one thing, and even if they did there is no guarantee that you won’t realize you have greater potential than you originally imagined. In fact, I can almost guarantee you have more potential than you imagine.

Potential is a moving target. It drifts further away and in every direction as we grow and learn. As we pursue our potential we realize we have more potential in another area. The more we drive the greater the possibilities, but there is no end. And there shouldn’t be. It is the race that is important, not the finish line. The pursuit of our potential strengthens us, not the stop at the end.
