If someone has ever told you that you have potential, this post is for you.
When someone tells you this, proceed with the following steps:
1) Thank them for not giving up on you. That person is really saying, “I care enough about you to let you know you are fucking up”.
2) Believe them. You are awesome and have everything you need to be the best version of yourself right now.
3) Do the work. Potential, like milk, has an expiration point. Potential does not mean, you are special and different and this will be easy for you because you have potential! Potential means you have a friend, a boss, or a mentor that is not sick of your shit yet and is willing to help you be the best most awesome version of yourself (if you’re interested).
4) Thank them, again. Then find someone else with “potential” and let them know, you’re their number one fan.
