Maximize your potential

Drew Brashier

As you might imagine, the 9Round Corporate Office is a pretty fun place to work. We work hard but we also make sure to do the important things in life, like give each other a very hard time at every opportunity.

The other day we were having a conversation and Heather “the Hero” made the comment to me that “Whenever I look at you I just think, man you’ve got lots of potential” Let me assure you, she was not trying to compliment me. It was more of a little jab saying “ man you suck now, but with a little work you could really do something”…… Ok, so as I type this I realize that you probably had to be there and hear the tone, but it was funny at the time….. It probably isn’t the greatest story as it is told the second time. ….

So my point is; this little conversation got me thinking….

What is potential and how do you know when you have reached it?

According to Google (because who really has a printed dictionary anymore) potential is an adjective meaning “having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future.”

Now, I guess you could say that each of us has potential. We all have the capacity to develop into something in the future. The question is, what is that something? Each of us has to decide for ourselves what we are reaching for. What do we want the future to hold for us? An even more difficult question is, what are we willing to do to reach it?

In the fitness industry, we often see people with the desire to live a healthier lifestyle. We see people who are wantng to look better and feel better. Some people want to lose a specific number of pounds. Some people just want to do something active and fun. No matter the reason that we are introduced to these individuals, they all have the potential to reach their goals. It becomes our mission to assist them in reaching their full potential.

Now here is the perplexing question…. (How many times do you really hear someone use the word perplexing?)

Has someone reached their full potential just because they have reached their goal?

In my most humble opinion, a person’s potential is limitless. When striving to reach your potential, an achieved goal is just a milestone to an even greater goal. Don’t set your goal as a finish line. You still have something to reach for. You still have something that you can accomplish. If you get to the end of your potential, what do you do next? If you ever reach the most that you can ever be, what is the next step?

Fitness is a never ending journey. There is always something that can be done to either stay in shape, or to get in better shape. When you reach one goal, set another one and keep moving forward. Challenge yourself and always set your sites on improvement.

Always strive to reach your full potential and hope that you never do!
