How to Awaken Your Potential

If you know you have more potential and want to take your game to the next level, here are a few findings that Aspire and its sister company, RCI Institute (, a real-life, practical applications research and learning lab, have identified as critical to outstanding performance. 

  1. Understand that your thoughts and your HeadTrash™ are running your show (aka your LIFE!). Your thoughts define how you feel, and together they direct your actions, for better and for worse. If you don’t like how you are showing up or living your life, take a look at your thoughts as they may be tied to beliefs that are not serving you and may also be undermining you unconsciously.
  2. Be a fanatical learner. Learning stimulates your mind and creativity, and this helps you solve challenges and see opportunities more effectively.
  3. Clarity of your focus is key to improving any situation, including work performance and relationships. Clarity allows you to take productive action. Action feeds your sense of contribution and self-worth. This helps you tap into your inner power and strength. In addition, action gives you a sense of control, as taking action is what you can control.
  4. Be aware of your influencers. These include friends, family, teammates, your social media feed, and the list of your life influencers are everywhere. 
  5. People either enhance your life or deplete it. Negativity does not create anything positive. It only perpetuates more negativity, fear, worry, and anxiety. Life is way too short to live in that mental space. 
  6. Understand that the quality of your life reflects the questions you ask yourself, especially when you find yourself in difficult situations. If you ask yourself, “Why is this happening to me?” you will likely get stuck in a negative spin of blame and shame, which will not move you forward towards what you want in your life. If, instead, you ask yourself, “Knowing what I know now, what actions help me get to where I want to go next?” you will have far different and more productive actions towards moving forward.
