Having potential is showing that you are capable of becoming something in the future, or showing a currently unrealized ability. Potential can be equated to something being possible. People are often encouraged to reach their “full potential”, which essentially means to be the best they can be.You can develop your potential by identifying where you are likely to achieve success and working towards it. If you have the potential for high grades, for example, then have the confidence to push yourself to reach those grades. Making a list of short and long term goals can help to keep you on track towards reaching your potential. Having a positive attitude, formulating a plan, and managing your time effectively can all help to turn potential into reality. Have you identified areas where you have potential?
