In reaching your full potentials in self-leadership, no man knows for sure the power that resides inside of him. Just as plants need and respond to external stimuli so as to grow, the same is true for man. This external influence is vital for some if they must go out and be able to sing the song of success in that which they so desire.
You know that one thing which you wish to accomplish, you believe you can accomplish it but the depth of the capacity to reach your full potentials in self-leadership no man can comprehend. You can only get to know about this power when you come in contact with that one external influence that propels you to take action while increasing the grade of your zeal.
You should not be totally unmindful of external influence in your life especially those that come to help you appreciate the value of self-confidence.
Reaching your full potentials in self-leadership through external influence
In reaching your full potentials in self-leadership, an encouraging word or deed from a mentor can recharge your mind and help you take charge of your destiny. Also, some stimulating or informative words from a book can go a long way in reshaping your thought pattern.
These external influences have the potential to redirect and focus your efforts on that one thing you wish to accomplish. The most important turning point of one’s life sometimes comes through one of these external influences.
Sometimes, knowledge and know-how is simply not enough when striving to reach your full potentials. You need an external influence to break the ice and shoot for the top. You have to first believe in yourself before others will believe in you. That is what happened to Ola in 2009. Ola has been chasing a client with a proposal since 2007 without any headway.
Suddenly, in 2009 a call came through from this client that his firm should submit the proposal and bid for an office building project. Ola’s firm was successful in the bidding process and was awarded the contract.
The rest is part of their success story.
Reaching your full potentials in self-leadership transcends the human influence
In succeeding in that endeavor, I want you to understand that reaching your full potentials in self-leadership transcends human influence. People have also succeeded in accomplishing that which they so desire by laying their hands on the right book or even journals.
These external influences will do nothing for you if you are already beaten. Have a ray of hope and belief inside of you and these external influences will help you regain your self-confidence.
At this point, I want you to commit this poem called: Thinking, to memory. Find the poem below:
‘If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t;
You like to win, but you think you can’t, it is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will-
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are-
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner than later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.
—–Walter D. Wintle
