Unlocking your potential is easier that you might think, if you follow these 5 tips from John Maxwell.
One of the key means to unlocking your potential is FOCUS.
- As a noun focus means: the center of interest or activity
- As a verb focus means: paying particular attention to
What you focus on, you are drawing to yourself. If you focus on what you don’t have, you will get more of the same. If you focus on what you want to have, you will get more of that.
5 Tips to Unlock Your Potential
- Focus on your Strengths
Ask yourself what am I really good at? How can I use it to help others? How can I take advantage of them to make my business or life more successful.
- Focus on Today
You have the opportunity to make a fresh start every morning, not just when the New Year comes around. All you have to do is to decide that that the past is gone and does no longer affect you and that as of today you will make decisions that are based on what YOU want and create the positive outcome and celebrate every little achievement.

- Focus on your Priorities
What means protecting your calendar? It means that you should limit your daily tasks that you consider vitally important for that day. These are the things that you absolutely have to do and nobody or nothing can prevent you from carrying them out. It is easy to come up with many tasks, but will you be able to do them? Stop overwhelm before it hits you by having only vitally important 3 tasks on your schedule. If you end up having more time do the ones that have a lower priority and you will get to shrink your tasks list without stress.
Set aside a specific time frame for each task. Turn off the ringer on your phone. Any notifications on your computer from social media. You want to be able to give your task your undivided attention.
- Focus on your Results
Why does it matter to you that you do those 3 daily tasks? How will it make your life easier and your business more successful?
- Focus on your Contribution
Are you doing things because it is expected of you? Are you afraid of being YOU and the reaction you will get from others because of it?
There is only one you and nobody can do things the way you do it. Be proud of being YOU and be bold.
