What is a weed? It is a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered. -Ralph Waldo Emerson.

One of the greatest problems people face is ignorance. It is even more deadly when one is oblivious of the strengths that one possesses. Myles Monroe comments that the graveyard, and not the oilfields of Iraq or Kuwait, is the richest deposit on earth because there lays potentials that were never discovered, books never written, songs never sung and hopes never realised. It is sad that many people wake up daily, fulfilling assignments they were never born to fulfil, burn out in stress and endure miserable lives.

Many people meander through life’s maze, tossing aside what were their big dreams while in school. They become mere playthings of fate and victims of social circumstances. Never conform to the prevailing social rot through drugs, sex, alcohol, corruption, bitterness, desperation or cybercrime. Fulfilment in life is more than meets the eye. You need to continually discover your potential and what to do with it in order not to contribute to the “riches” of the graveyard. Constantly ask yourself these questions:

• Who am I?
• Why am I living?
• What is my potential?
• How can I maximise my potential and live a fulfilled life?
• What are my values and standards?
• How can I overcome my limitations?
• When do I want to start achieving my life’s goals?

Stay in your area of core competency. Stop overlapping into someone else’s lane because the fellow’s activity is the fad. Stick to what you are great at. Imagine how laughable it would be for Ali Baba to release a music album or to become a footballer. Would it be interesting to learn that Kanu Nwankwo is now a goalie or an assistant referee?

Stop postponing the actualisation of your dreams. “He who observes the wind will not sow” (King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 11:4). There is no better time than today.
There’s hope for you if you would be true to yourself. The 1st key to finding true fulfilment in life is being honest with yourself, regardless of whether or not you are currently walking towards your dreams. Look up to God for change and be the change that you have for long desired.

• Quitting is not running from our problems, it is running from the opportunity to solve our problems. -Dr Ubah Maxwell

• Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustration, but about your unfulfilled potential. -Pope John XXIII

• Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan, ´press on’ has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race. -John Coolidge
