A RELATIONSHIP WITH POTENTIAL...




Have you ever recognized potential in someone who can’t see it themselves? How about dated someone who has the potential to be not only everything you want, but everything he/she daily speak of, but struggle getting there? If you’ve answered yes to either of these questions, are you still in the relationship? Have they grown into their potential? What role did you play in him/her reaching it? Or are you part of the problem preventing them from reaching it?


Maybe you remember my blog, “I See Potential In You”… If not, maybe you should read it… Many of you are currently involved with people who have a resemblances of potential… With a little work, he can be a great husband/man… With a little work, she can be a great wife/woman… You see what you want to see in them, but many times what you see is only a fragment of your imagination… “Potential” is something both people must see… “Potential” is something both people must want to achieve… You can want the best for someone, but if they’re not on board with you, it’s all in vain…


But then there are those who are on board with you and my question to you is, how are you navigating the boat??? Are you speaking potential or poison into their lives? You see when dating someone with “potential”, you must be PATIENT… If you struggle with this, LEAVE HIM/HER ALONE, you will be more damaging than good. Patience is necessary because he/she may not move as quickly as you want, doesn’t mean they’re not ambitious, just not moving fast… Patience is required because in moments when you’re frustrated, if not careful you will kill every ounce of hope he/she has… Your words will poison their dreams, suffocate their passion, and choke the life out of their future… People who possess potential or “Yet” people, not “Now”… “Yet” people are those who haven’t arrived at their destination, “Now” are those who are already there…. So you must decide what type of person you are and what type of person you want...


What I know for sure is… Everyone has potential, whether or not he/she sees it is up to the individual… Just because someone has potential, doesn’t necessary mean they’re going to reach it in its full capacity… If you choose to date someone with potential, make sure they see and aiming to reach it… You can’t force it, but you sure can guide it through your words and encouragement…. It’s okay to want more for someone, but those are your wants, they have to want it themselves… In the meantime, speak life and not death... Speak who they're going to be, not who they are... Speak the things that makes them unique, not the same as everyone else... Patience is key If you choose to wait it out and see what the future holds… If you're not patient, take your "right now" mentality having self on elsewhere...
