It is discovery of man’s potential that helps him to maximize his destiny in life. If you don’t know who you are, you will never realize what you can do. It is your potential, not people around you that informs you of what you can do. So, always look inward to find out what you can do. Do not look outward, but inward.
Looking at what others are doing could lead to comparison which engenders competition. Competition is about how you can do better than others. But you don’t have anyone to compete with because you are unique and different from them. No one can do what you are doing, neither can you do what others are doing. You are specially designed, assigned and deployed. If there is anyone /anything to compete with, it is your potential – measure yourself with your potentials.
Challenge your potentials and strive to “out do” your potentials. It is the source of a thing that determines the potential (innate ability) of the thing.
God is the potential of man because He didn’t only make man in His image and likeness, but also breathe His very life into him. Genesis 1:26&28; 2:7
Man is a full expression of God.
Man is God full on the way to manifest. Colossians 2:9-10.
