Ways to distinguish yourself – #60 Recognize and respect potential

This is a question for those who have already achieved something

significant in their lives and become remarkable as people – “Before

you reached where you are now, way before you had those accomplishments

– do you remember anyone recognizing your potential?”

Every time I ask this question, I get a positive answer. People always

remember those that they recognized them for their potential. Most

often, there is a story behind every achiever – of someone in their

life who recognized and encouraged them way before the world recognized

them. In fact, without the help of these “special” people, some people

would not have made it big.

Those that recognize us early

have a special place in our lives. They are special because not

everyone takes the time to the see the potential in people. Others are

so busy and most important – they need evidence from history that you

can “make it happen.”

You want to make a lasting impression on someone’s life? Start

recognizing and respecting potential in those young people way before

someone else does. You would have secured a permanent position in their

hearts and minds.
