Law of potential

The wealthiest spot on this planet is 6 feet underneath: Cemetery. In there lie millions of songs that never composed, purpose and destiny alive that never become reality. The greatest tragedy: LIFE that never reaches the full potential. Some things about Potential:

  • Potential is unexposed ability and hidden powers that you have. It’s all you can become but not yet realized. I’m more than what I’ve done.
  • God is the source of all potential

  • Everything greats in life always start from a seed (small). Everything you see in this life has a potential! Nothing potentially great in life is an instant. No shortcut to success in life. Everything began as a potential. Just because we don’t see things doesn’t mean it is not exist. Before the foundation of the world, God have already think about you.
  • Potential is released by hard work. Work releases potential. God want us to be a good worker. God created man to work. God also loves to work. Work is not a punishment of sin.
  • God wanted man to come forth and to find work so their potential can be released. God never create supervisors to check on Adam, so in your office if you can work without being supervised you can release your full potential.
  • To maximize my talent, I need to use my ability to the full capacity. 70% of people don’t like to change (staying in the comfort zone). God created you with a full / top capacity to fulfill your dreams.
  • The more you discover your purpose, the more you discover what you can do in life (capability)
  • Constant comparison with others can harm potential. True success is measured by how much you have done compared to what you could have done in god. Our goal is to be the best we can be! It doesn’t matter if there’s other people that are wealthier than you.
  • Pass experiences can hinder faith. You may have experiences, but by faith, all things are possible to you.
  • God commanded the man not to eat the fruits. When you go beyond the limit, you disqualify everything else you supposed to enjoy in your life.I need to obey the laws of limitation. It’s called a dream because it has no limitation. Every appliance has a circuit breaker to prevent from self destruct. Potential is always given to bless not to harm. If your potential is harming others, check your habits!
  • Potential is maximized when you share it with others. Adam’s problem is he is isolated. He got talents but no one can’t appreciate it. He got no one like himself to bless. You are not design to be alone and isolated

Law of Ability

Success is a choice that you made, it depends on your decision
Everything we experienced, prosperity, wealth, success is in the context of what have been accomplished already.

God Gave Noah guarantees. God doesn’t believe in spoon feeding and spoiling us. Wake up to the FACTS and ACCEPT what you can’t change. 90% of millionaires are self made (hard work). The first commandment from God: YOU’VE GOTTA BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY (become productive in life). Reach our maximum level of productivity.

We have got to be people of ability.

Points on law of ability :
  • What is ability itself? Skill, power, resources to do things / accomplish something. God gave talents to each according to his ability. You only get what you can handle in life. God knows your limit. But limit can be changed! So, raise your level of ability! God expect His disciples to grow.
  • How to raise it? Ability is increased by use! The more you use the better it will become. Solid food is for the mature who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. When there’s an effective use of ability leads to an increase of your effectiveness.
  • Your ability always grows to the level of your dream. Your dream will challenge you. I must dream! I’ve got to dream. Stop blaming God and society...
  • Inability has more to do with a bad attitude. The person who got 1 talent [in the parable of talents], blames the society, too lazy, and had a lousy attitude. It hinders his ability
  • With ability comes higher responsibility. (you learned this phrase from Spiderman, but it’s actually / originally quoted from Luke 12:48) Responsibility comes from the words responds and ability, which means responds to the ability you have in life. Society will expect more! The greater the ability, the greater the demand. 

  • As ability increases, so does the attraction of opportunity. Ability attracts ability. E.g: duet of two favorite singer, mariah carey and whitney houston, because both of them got special and awesome ability / talents.
  • Your ability is hindered / enhance by the company you keep.Never hang with the wrong crowd! Bad company corrupts good character.

Discovering your purpose

Do you believe that God has predetermined a time and place for every nations and country and people? Nothing happened by chance. There are 9 things about purpose that you should know:
  • Everything in life has a purpose. Everything has a reason for existence, part to play. You are not an accident. He made everything beautiful in His time
  • My purpose is in the mind of God. God always had a plan to prosper us to give us hope and future!
  • My purpose is constantly and uncreasingly calling out to me. Your purpose is thinking very hard to get your attention. It is there all along, even before you were born.
  • Where purpose is not known, abuse is inevitable. Abusing (ab normal use, wrong use) your gift when you don’t know your purpose. E.g: When you have a servant, if she never saw a Teflon before she might wash it with extra power to make it clean.
  • My ability and nature (design) predicts your purpose. e.g: like your car à the design, aerodynamic. Your natural inclination, something you’re born with, before the foundation of the earth. You are wired that way, doesn’t mean that you’re strange!

    • Something you love so much. You would do it for free. Sense of fulfillment is greater than monetary return. If you seek first the kingdom of God you will not be poor forever. You will become the magnet of resources!
    • My purpose brings the anointing of God. Purpose brings with it the annointing of maximum success. God fills you with a Holy Spirit to fulfill your purpose. Everybody has a role to play. The anointing is the power to perform excellence / maximum performance. It’s not just to help your career, but there’s a bigger picture. Because ultimately God wants you to build His kingdom of God.
    • My purpose will prosper me and the kingdom of God. God empower you to empower other people. God put the word (purpose) in your heart.
    • Where my talents and the needs of the world intersect that’s your purpose! Your purpose will fulfill the need of others. The purpose is not just about you! You are never too old / too young to walk in the purpose of God. God is never late. A promise begins to manifest. There’s nothing too hard for God.

      Accidents or Incidents?

      When things go wrong in life, do we assume that what happened is an accident? Or can we accept the fact that there are no accidents, only incidents for God's children- incidents that demonstrate human weakness and show how God's grace is sufficient no matter what the situation is?
      God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose [Romans 8:28]. God is in control. There are no accidents for the child of God, only incidents that bring us into confrontation with our humanness and God's sovereign grace.
