Recognize your capacity to change. This is key to developing your potential. Recall times in your life when you faced challenges and grew through them to reach new heights. There is no limit to what you can achieve once you set your mind to it. Evolve your own greatness by mindfully choosing actions that advance you in life.
For example, if you want to develop greater self-control and assertiveness in times of conflict, you could take advantage of peaceful times and think of different ways of responding. Rehearse a compassionate response that neutralizes the situation and helps to dissolve the tension. Refrain from allowing yourself to become vulnerable and reacting defensively. You might choose to say “I see you are upset. I feel concerned about the situation and would like to resolve this problem together. Would you be open to brainstorming a solution in the morning?” Think forward, choose mindfully and one step at a time, you will gradually come to realize your true potential!
