When you were born, you had the potential to walk and talk but you didn’t do any of that. As a baby, you were completely dependent on someone until you were able to express your potential to talk and walk. Likewise, you carry a potential within you to fulfil your destiny and your future depends on it. If you stay ignorant of the power of your potential, you will be denying yourself the life you truly deserve.

Realizing the power of your potential will determine your success in life. Share on X

Are You Ignorant Of The Power Of Your Potential?

If you don’t learn how to crawl, how can you walk?

If you don’t learn how to push, how can you pull?

If you don’t learn how to talk, how can you sing?

If you don’t learn how to stand, how can you jump?

To reveal the power of your potential,

You will have to learn to identify your abilities.


Everything has a starting point.

Acknowledging your ‘start’ is the beginning of progress.

The highest mountain starts from somewhere,

Don’t be afraid to take the first step to climb.

Though it is terrifying to start the unknown.

But if you fix your gaze on the future reward, you will find courage.


Everything has a source.

Acknowledging your ‘source’ is the beginning of self-realization.

Even the mighty ocean has a source.

Don’t be afraid to discover the power of your potential.

Your self-image is the reflection of your source.

And self-curiosity is your clue to unleashing potential.

Don’t be in a hurry to run,

When you haven’t perfected walking.

Don’t be in a hurry to dance,

When you haven’t perfected standing.

Strive to connect with your inner self.

Seek knowledge to improve yourself.

Meditate for self-realization.

Never hold yourself back.

Never accept limitation.

Never doubt your capability.


It is OK to be afraid of unleashing your potential.

It is OK to worry about if people will accept it or not.

But relax; you only need to take the first step.

Unleashing your potential is worth the effort.

Don’t hesitate to showcase your potential to the world.

And you will be proud of your accomplishment.


Fear only set in when something is valuable and worth it.

So it is OK to be afraid because your potential is truly valuable.

The power of your potential has no limitation.

Therefore, strive to unleash the full capacity.

Unleashing your potential is the best gift you can give yourself.

And you will be amazed at what you are capable of doing.

  1. “Your potentials need nurturing so be patient.” I won’t give up, I will be patient and will continue to push the boundaries. Thanks for writing such an inspiring poem.

  2. It is always scary to start. I always feel like I’m not good enough and I also lack the courage to start doing something with my talent. I stumbled on this poem and it spoke to my heart and soul. It’s as if it was written especially for me. I feel motivated to kickstart. You are a blessing!
