  Horace Walpole, an English historian and novelist, once said, “Men are often capable of greater things than they perform. They are sent into the world with bills of credit, and seldom draw to their full extent.” What he is trying to communicate is that humans come into the world with a tremendous amount of potential, but very few individuals ever really draw on the true potential that they have. How do you develop your full potential?

The potential of an entity is determined by the demands made on it by the one who created it. Your potential is not determined by who you are or by what you look like. Rather your potential is determined by what is being demanded of you by the One who made you. You may not look smart. However, if the Creator who made you demands superior intelligence of you, then smartness is somewhere on the inside of you.

Myles Munroe: The Power of Planning

Consider these few thoughts about thoughts. A thought is a silent word. Therefore, a word is an exposed thought. Everything in life starts in the form of a thought. Imagination is when a thought becomes a plan. Therefore, imagination is a plan that is not documented. If you want to be successful in life, take your ideas, turn them into imaginations, and then take the imagination and duplicate it physically. The physical document becomes a plan of action.

Myles Munroe: Innovation Emerges in Crisis

Innovation is the capacity to think beyond the known, defy the norm, and believe in one’s ability to solve problems. I remain positive because I am convinced that no problem is unsolvable. You do not have to throw in the towel, commit suicide, or quit because every problem has a solution. No matter what happens in this current economic crisis, you can solve it. There are ways to rise above crisis. You have to think innovatively. What you need is on the inside of you. You have to initiate solutions. Do not wait for things to happen to you. Take control, and decide what happens. You have to place demands on your potential. Your answers may be found in a talent or ability that you least expect could be used. There is a way to rise above. In order to rise above crisis, you have to believe in your ability to solve problems. Look at what you have. Study your environment, your experience, and your relationships. You never know who has the rest of your puzzle. As it pertains to visionary leadership, you always have a piece of the vision for your life, and there are other people around you and in the world that have the rest of what you need.
