The richest deposits on our planet lie not many blocks from your house—in your local cemetery. Buried beneath the soil of those sacred grounds are songs that never were sung, books that never were written, paintings that never filled a canvas, ideas that never became reality.

Click here to subscribe to our newsletter. What is potential? Dormant ability. Untapped strength. Unused success. Hidden talents. Capped capability. There's a wealth of potential within you. But you must decide if you will deprive the world or bless it with the valuable, potent, untapped resources locked away within you. Most men and women never realize their full potential because they do not understand the keys to a fulfilled, effective life.
Every manufacturer establishes the specifications, environment, conditions and operational standards for attaining the maximum performance level of his or her product. God our Creator and Manufacturer has also established a plan for the maximum performance and release of your potential.
Violation of these requirements will result in the malfunction, distortion, misuse and abuse of your precious potential. After careful study of the Bible—the Manufacturer's Handbook—I have identified 10 major keys to releasing your full potential:. You must know be related to your Source. It is essential that you understand the nature, composition and consistency of your Source, for this is the key to understanding the potency of your potential.
If you had a wooden table in your house, for example, you would be aware that the table is made of wood from a tree. The strength, durability and nature of the table can only be as strong and durable as the tree. If the tree is weak, the table will be the same. Therefore, the potential of the table is determined by the potential of the source from which it came.
The same is true for you. We also possess an eternal spirit just like our Source. We will live forever—not because He allows us to, but because it's our nature. The same relationship exists between God and humanity. God guarantees the maximum performance of our potential if we remain related to Him and submit to the conditions, specifications and standards set by Him. A personal relationship with our Creator is a key to the releasing of our full potential. You must understand how the product was designed to function.
God designed human beings to function as He does. You and I were created to function by faith and love. These are the fuels on which we run. The just live—operate—by faith Rom. And faith works through love Gal. Our potential cannot be released without faith and love.
Fear and hatred short-circuit our potential. You must know your purpose. Every product exists for a specific purpose. God created you and gave you life for a purpose. Whatever that purpose is, you possess the potential to fulfill it. You must understand your resources. Environment consists of the conditions that have a direct or indirect effect on the performance, function and development of a thing. In the manual, the manufacturer will caution against violation of that specified environment for maximum performance.
The right environment is the ideal conditions needed to maximize the true potential. God created everything to flourish within a specific environment. This is also true of humans. You can never be all you could be in any other environment. The key to releasing your true potential is the restoration of God's original environment. Jesus came to restore us to the Father.
Potential is dormant ability. Adam had inside of him all the potential necessary to fulfill the assignment. But he was not aware of his potential, even as you may not be aware of what you can do. So the first thing God gave Adam was not a wife, but work Gen. He made demands on the potential of Adam's mind by commanding him to name the animals and stimulated the potential of his body by commanding him to cultivate the garden.
Work is a major key to releasing your potential. Claiming a promise does not make it happen. The land was promised to the children of Israel, but they had to walk it out to possess it Deut.
Good ideas do not bring success. Good hard work does. Potential is like a seed. You must guard your potential. It's tragic when a tree dies in a seed or a person dies in childhood. With all the wealth of your potential, you must be careful to guard and protect it. The Bible calls your potential a treasure in an earthen vessel 2 Cor. Satan is after your potential. Be on guard. You must share your potential. Nature abounds with this truth.
The sun does not exist for itself. Plants release oxygen for us, and we provide carbon dioxide for the plants. No potential exists for itself. This is also true of human potential. The true measure of fulfilled potential is not what is accomplished, but who receives benefit from the accomplishment. Your deposit was given to enrich and inspire the lives of others. Remember, the great law is love. Freedom and power are two of the most important elements in our lives.
Potential is the essence of both. Potential is power. Every manufacturer establishes laws of limitations. God has set laws and standards to protect our potential and to secure our success. Violating these laws limits the release of your potential. Obedience ensures protection and maximization.
