Hello and good morning Full Potential Beings 🌞 ! A new day is upon us. Another gift. Another blessing.
Let us design this day in the best possible way for the greatest fulfillment.
Right now as I reflect back over recent posts, what feels inspiring to share is simply this: consistency and repetition in building a body of work.
When I first started down the path of personal development I was amazed at the things I could learn that they did not teach at school.
I was about 13 years old learning about meditation, lucid dreaming, astral travel and the science of personal achievement.
The subjects in school seemed boring in comparison. And I couldn’t figure out why these subjects were not even touched on.
That’s when I decided to start ‘The Success Connection’ newsletter / magazine to share more on success and personal development. I thought more people would be interested and this was before the internet even a thing!
I did a marketing blitz with the coupons brought to thousands of people’s households and spent about $300.
I got one $40 subscription.
And I decided to cancel the venture and give the money back.
Fast forward years later.. I would start the Full Potential Show and interview over 250 experts and authors in the field of personal development, success etc as I was establishing a YouTube channel.
And because it didn’t grow to tens of thousands of subscribers very quickly, I decided to stop doing the show.
I wrote a book and because it got an ‘average’ review I stopped trying to promote it.
I wrote several more books, none of which I actually published.
The truth is I haven’t always given this Full Potential Mission my all. And dedicated myself to the practice of consistency and repetition.
If I had.. who knows where it would be right now or how many more people I would have positively impacted.
It’s just that consistency and repetition.. take time. Take motivation. Take discipline. And so often if motivation comes from the extrinsic feedback and I am not getting enough to continue, it’s hard to stay on track.
That’s why I have just decided regardless of external feedback to just get into the practice of consistency and repetition.
Writing every day because it will make me a better writer. It will help me clarify my ideas. And it will help me build a body of work that I can look back and feel like I accomplished something. This feels good.
And that was my original slogan of Full Potential: it feels good.
So find that thing you want to do, and get better at. Commit to repeating it and doing it consistently. Find the intrinsic, internal motivation to continue. And build up a body of work that you can look back and be proud of.
