Keys to Unlock Your Potential

I am just wrapping up a month of training and corporate coaching for some executives and leaders across the great State of Tennessee.  I was honored to have an opportunity to coach on such a grand scale, and it really was the accomplishment of one of the bold goals that I set for my business at the beginning of the year and that was to do more leadership and group coaching.  I've always been passionate about helping others achieve their greatness, while at the same time learning to stretch myself beyond my comfort zone and doing the great work that I know I'm truly capable of, while unlocking my own potential. 

"When you stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, that's when you find that you have additional capacity to do, receive and achieve much more." - Dr. Jacki

I believe that for many of us there are still untapped areas of hidden potential.  Some experts say that we only use about 10% of our brain.  I don't know if that's necessarily true however for the sake of argument let's assume that it is. If that's the case then that suggests that there is about 90% of  untapped potential within us that is not being maximized.

"One of the saddest things a person can do is to reach the end of their life without ever really knowing who they could have become had they made the choice to throw themselves fully towards their dream." - Dr. Jacki

I teach a personal development workshop entitled "Unlock Your Potential".  In the course we talk about effective ways in which you can position yourself to maximize your greatness.  Here are a few talking points:
1. Don't be afraid to break the rules.  The rules I'm referring to are those well defined boxes that people have created for you, based on how they perceive you.  Don't allow other people to define you, define yourself.  Don't allow the agenda of other people to come before the plan that God has for your life.
2. Remember the gift of imagination that you were born with.  Most people forget that when they were children they had a vivid imagination. We used to pretend and dream of what we would do and who we would become when we grew up.  Then life happened, and for many of us, we stopped imagining.  I believe that those early childhood dreams are very telling because they gave us a glimpse of a future life, what we could have done, and who we could have become, had we not been afraid to try.
3. Forgive.  "Wait did she just say forgive?  What does that have to do with unlocking my potential?'"

Well, I'm glad you asked.  Let me explain...when we harbor un-forgiveness in our hearts that turns into bitterness. When we are bitter what we are saying in essence is that the past has more power over us than our future. Un-forgiveness keeps you stuck in a place of low or NO productivity, and it prevents you from becoming the best person you could be.  Learning to forgive releases you from the pain of the past, so that you can become the best representation of your greatest self, and achieve your highest potential.
These are just a few of the topics that we explore in the "Unlock Your Potential" personal development workshop.  Here's how you can be a part of the next workshop!
Much Success!
