It's easier to see the imperfections in others, rather than their good. It's easier to point the finger, than to take responsibility. It's easier to bemoan your problems than explore your potential. However, easy is not the name of the game. And yet, the more you practice, the easier it becomes.
What if you could use this natural human inclination — to avoid, project and complain — to serve you, instead of hinder you? What if, by your simple engagement, you could turn it all around not only for yourself, but for others too?
If human beings are perceived as potentials rather than problems, as possessing strengths instead of weaknesses, as unlimited rather than dull and unresponsive, then they thrive and grow to their capabilities.
The next time you're about to whip out the finger to point in another direction, entertain the possibility of witnessing the potential in the other. It doesn't matter whether it's a person or a situation. What if you shifted your viewpoint from the problem to the possibility? Instead of thinking of the numerous shortcomings, enumerate as many positive outcomes as possible. Let your imagination run wild and free, unleash your outrageous edge and notice how limitless is your ability to envision potential.
Now, turn it around on yourself. Notice what other options are available for you with this specific person or situation. Notice the array of emotions that are available to you? Who can you become in order to meet this encounter powerfully? How could you speak, move or gesture to create a more powerful outcome?
You have the ability to activate potential in others, as well as yourself. Your focus, attention, energy, words and actions weave a creative tapestry of vibrant reality. In your willingness to be the spark of life, you gift the world with the energy of possibility. That's all life needs to partner with you and to bring more into being.
The next time that you are feeling low on your own talents and abilities, try on your magical ability to weave light into your everyday moments. You'll be astounded at what transpires!
