Making Plans, Giving Praise, Fulfilling Potential, and Finding Purpose – Part 1 of 2

The last half of December, so far, has become much colder with more snowfall than in the first half. Looking like a white Christmas is a sure thing in Maine, in contrast to last December’s unseasonably warm, brown Christmas.  How’s the weather in your part of the world in this week approaching Christmas?

This is a two-part post – this one for Monday, December 19 – because just when you think you have things all figured out, LIFE happens to change your plans! The other will be for Tuesday, December 20 -stay tuned!



Now onto your Monday inspirational thoughts.


“Potential cannot manifest without form.

To develop potential properly,

you must have a plan and pray over that plan,

you must have a purpose,

and you must be doing something.

Many people are unhappy

because they aren’t doing anything

to develop their potential.

In fact, many of them never

develop their potential

because they don’t do anything except complain

that they’re not doing anything!

If you want to see your potential

developed to its fullness,

don’t wait until everything is perfect.

Do something now.

Start laying your hand to whatever is in front of you.

You cannot start at the finish line.

You must start at the beginning like everybody else.”

–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”


My reflections:


This one is so fitting right now,  as I endeavor to complete this educational journey toward fulfilling my potential with my Doctor of Education degree…and as I consider my next steps!


So what are  YOUR thoughts?


What are you doing to fulfill your potential?


Is it time to change course?

  1. I may well be changing course by the end of next year (or sooner, if life gives its opinion) – the possibility of retirement from a career I’ve had for many years closes various doors but hopefully will open new ones.
