Life is a journey not a destination. Dont focus on reaching an arbitrary point, whether that is your full potential or specific goals. Instead focus on whether you are doing your best to grow, improve and expand. Focus not on living up to your full potential but in doing your full potential in every moment of your life. By focusing on doing your full potential you can experience maximum growth and improvement in your life. From this improvement and growth you can achieve happiness and fulfillment. We feel we are growing, improving and experiencing life to the best of our abilities is when we are the most fulfilled and contented. This implies doing something with full potential. Living up to our full potential is the point of maximum achievement in our lives & is full of inspiring. True potential implies success, happiness and fulfillment & are linked to achieving a life full with contentment. In this sense, as long as we are doing the best we possibly can, we are successful.
