Daily Practical Steps to Happiness and Change: #4.
Identify and overcome the diminishers of your potential with 4 powerful steps.
We all have potential in abundance to do many things. While the potential of some people continue to thrive, some others’ potential continues to be limited or diminished.
But where do the diminishers of our potential come from? Well, they come from the following two main sources:
1. The limiting opinions others hold about us:
2. The limiting beliefs we hold about ourselves.
Yes, we do get limited by what others think of our abilities. However, the limitations that stagnate and diminish our potential to a greater level are those that we hold about ourselves.
Therefore, we first need to tackle our self-potential diminishers. They are the limiting beliefs that originate from within us. Once we are able to master our self-limiting beliefs and potential diminishers, it becomes easy to deal with the limiting opinions coming from others.
What are some of these self-potential diminishers? Let’s look at the 3 main diminishers of our potential, and how we can overcome them.
Limiting Beliefs Vs Daily Affirmations.
How to over come this? Crush your limiting beliefs with concise, positive, and powerful sentences that replace unhealthy thoughts with positive images in your mind. Write down your affirmations and practice them daily.
- I am good enough.
- My mistakes do not define me.
- I am capable.
- I am confident.
- I have high self-esteem.
- I can make it. I’m a happy person.
You could choose to say them out loud at the start of your day or think about them as you interact with others. Believe each positive statement you write about yourself and start to act on it.
Don’t be intimated by your weaknesses but overcome them with your strengths which you have many. After all, we all occupy the largest room: which is the room for IMPROVEMENT.Nabs
Fear Vs Hope.
One of the largest causes of procrastination is typically fear. We want to do something, but we keep putting it off and our enthusiasm keeps diminishing. We accumulate fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of perfection, and fear of the unknown.
How to overcome this? Overcome those fears with radical hope, confidence, courage, and determination. Surround yourself with people that believe in your abilities to do something.

Inability Vs Ability.
On many occasions, we diminish our true potential by the assumptions and beliefs we hold that we are not good enough, we don’t have enough, we don’t have the ability, or the skill set to make things happen.
How to overcome this?
Desire: Do you want to accomplish it? It starts with you having a strong aspiration/desire to do something.
Belief: What is your belief system about your goal, your desire, and yourself? Is that belief system negative or positive? You need to develop an uplifting belief, motivation, and big enough reason that YOU CAN do it. You can achieve it. You are capable. Believe right and live right!
The beliefs we hold about ourselves are like the roots of a tree. The flourishing of the branches and leaves of that tree highly depends on how firmly and nourished the roost are situated.

Action: Action: Then Do it. Spring into action.
ACT = Action Changes Things! Sometimes, all we need to do is to start with the “Do It” part. Just take action and you will discover that: Yes, you have wanted to do it all this time. Yes, you were having the ability to do it all this time but you didn’t just know it. And Yes, you still have the ability to keep getting better at it.
Remember that you have your Inner-ability to do whatever you choose to put your mind to. That’s powerful!
