SELF SINKS SOON! SAVE YOURSELF! YOU HAVE POTENCY,
This is Part 10 in a series of articles about the “self.”
YOU HAVE POTENCY. ARE YOU GOING TO ACT?
Do you remember in the “olden days” of the internet when someone messaged you, the computer “Dinged” and said cheerfully, “You’ve got MAIL!!”?
Well, you’ve got POTENCY! Won’t do you any good unless you ACT on it.
Every child has the potential to become the best parts of herself that exist in her essential nature.
More philosophy, here folks, but don’t panic!
Let us just briefly look at the implications of POTENCY and ACT in everyday terms and situations.
The terms “potency” and “act” come originally from Aristotle and were advanced by St Thomas Aquinas.
The discussion on the subject continues to this day because it is an essential of life. It’s too damn important to lie in some dusty philosophy book.
All a child’s inherent, gifts, talents and attributes have the potential, the potency, the possibility, of reaching their full flowering. This rarely happens in real life.
The luckiest of us manage to achieve SOME of our potential.
Usually, that happens only if we have good childhoods. That means good parenting, which obviously means good parents.
And THAT means having parents who are not children themselves–not in the sense of their ages but in their growth and development.
We all know people who are terrible parents. They should never have had children. They act like children themselves.
Those kinds of parents are not mature “grown-ups.” They are not capable of being good parents. You CAN achieve a lot in life without good parenting but it ain’t easy!
OTHER THINGS CONSPIRE AGAINST US TOO!
We use only a fraction of our brainpower. We lose concentration and focus. We get distracted. We get tired.
We make poor choices often and diminish or quash what might have made us better. One way or another we fail to find our true selves and reach our potential. Whether we are successful or not depends upon a host of factors that we can get into later.
However, one of the reasons we don’t achieve greatness is because even if we discover our unique gifts, we don’t ACT on them.
Next, we’ll look at WHY many of us don’t reach our full potential–or anything near it. Why we don’t discover our natural gifts, talents and abilities.
You don’t have to succumb to this nonsense.
I don’t care what your education is.
I don’t care what your work is.
I don’t care how old you are.
If you act on your potency, you can thrive.
Find your talents. Don’t let them wither.
Search for your self.
