Not living up to your potential? This is why.


You have so much potential. You know this. You feel in your bones that you have a lot to offer to the world. Lot’s of visions, talents, love, and light. But somehow, it’s just not coming out. This leaves you feeling like you’re not living up to your fullest potential.

And it’s eating at you. Because you want to be your best self. But you just don’t know how.

Why do you feel this way and, most importantly, what can you do about? I’m explaining this, in this blog. So keep reading!

2 types of feelings

Generally speaking, there are two types of situations in which you feel like you’re not living up to your potential.

In the first situation, you’re in a job that you like. You maybe even love it. You like what you need to do, you like your colleagues. You basically like everything about it but still, there is this feeling inside of you that says you could be doing so much more.

Then there’s the situation where you don’t like your job. You maybe feel like you’re missing some skills to do the job right. Something is lacking. This makes you feel insecure. And yet, at the same time, you just know that you have so much more in you then you’re currently showing.

Ignoring it won’t work. I’ve tried.

If you recognize this, you can, of course, try to ignore it. Hoping that it’ll go away by itself. This is what I did.

Thinking back, I guess I have always felt like I wasn’t truly living up to my potential in my legal job. I felt it in my bones that I had so much more in me. But it wasn’t showing.

So I thought that I had to work hard, do my best more, get extra training, extra coaching, etc.

It’s because you’re not living your purpose

Now I know that I didn’t need more training or coaching. I was feeling this way because I wasn’t living my purpose.

That’s why I always felt unfulfilled and like something was lacking. I wasn’t doing what I was meant to do. And that created an empty feeling.

This yearning for something else, was my soul telling me that I wasn’t living up to my true potential. I was feeling this way because I wasn’t doing the thing that I was put on this earth for to do.

And for you, my friend, it’s probably the same.

You’re too feeling this way because you’re not living your purpose. And this feeling won’t go away until you start (taking steps towards) living your purpose. That’s the only way you can truly start owning up to your true potential.

How to live up to your potential. 3 steps.
