{Sittin’ On A Gold Mine}

When it comes to potential, we all are sittin’ on a GoLdMiNe.  God has placed incredible potential in every single one of us.  Don’t believe me?  Then you probably haven’t dug deep enough.  Because trust me, it’s there.

I think most of us know this is true.  If that is the case, then why are so many people not developing their potential and mining their ReSoUrCeS?  I may be wrong, but I think one of the #1 reasons people don’t develop their potential is because they wish they were sittin’ on someone else’s goldmine.  They wished they had the resources that somebody else possessed:  looks, talents, gifts, personality, disposoition, life circumstances, etc.

In elementary school they have a saying, “You GeT what you GeT and you don’t throw a fit.”  Well, that saying can apply to us grown up folk, as well.  It is what it is.  You’ve got what you’ve got.  Now, what are you gonna do with it?
