Moving To The Next Level

God has given us potential to live a great life but the reality is that many are not living a great life because they are not maximizing their potential. For you to move to the next level, you have to use your potential to the maximum.

You need to get rid of low expectations. Don't make little plans for your life. Don't have little dreams. Dream big! You are a child of the Most High God. God has breathed His life into you. He planted greatness in you. You have everything you need to fulfill your God-given destiny. God has already put in the talent, the creativity, the discipline, the wisdom, and the determination. It's all in you. You are full of potential. But you have to do your part and start utilizing them. You have to make better use of the gifts and talents that God has given you.

Don't live with your treasures undiscovered, and don't die with the treasures still in you. Press forward. Give birth to the dreams and desires that God has placed in your heart. You have the seed of Almighty God on the inside of you. You were never created to be average. You were never created to reach a certain level and plateau. You were created to excel. There's no limit to how high you can go in life. There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you will just learn to shake off complacency and keep stretching to the next level. 

But it all starts with your mind. You have to believe that you have what it takes. You have to believe that you have a gift, a treasure on the inside. People may have tried to push you down. Circumstances may have soured your outlook on life. Maybe you've tried to succeed in life but have a brick wall, again and again. Try again. Somebody may have told you "no" a thousand times; ask again. Keep asking until you get the "yes" , that you have been waiting to hear. You have got to keep pressing. Here's a story about two drivers driving the same model of car on the Autobahn, the superhighway across Germany. Unlike most freeways, the Autobahn has no speed limits. You can drive fast as you want. The first driver was so excited as he pressed down on the accelerator and took the car to 80 miles per hour, then 90,100,120. He felt like the king of the road, zooming past other drivers left and right.

 A few minutes later, the second driver streaked down the freeway, although this car was the same model as the first driver's car, it blew by him like he was standing still. That second automobile was going 170 per hour. The first driver was not going as fast as he can but going as fast as he will. Think about it: The first driver's car possessed tremendous potential. It too was capable of going 180 miles per hour. The manufacturer put in the potential. How fast he drove didn't have anything to do with the car's capability. In other words, the potential was not lessened just because he chose not to use it. And simply having the potential on board did not affect his future. It's the way with us. Our potential has been put in us. Our potential has been put in us by our Manufacturer, our Creator, Almighty God. Whether we use it or not does not diminish it, but it does impact our future.

The events of your past do not reduce your potential. How somebody has treated you or what he or she said about you doesn't change your potential. Maybe you've been through some disappointments, or have had some unfair things happen in life. None of that affects your potential. It has been put in permanently by the creator of the Universe. (Romans 11:29) The capability is in you. The real question is: Are you willing to break free from your self-imposed limitations and start stretching to the next level.
