Potential: absolutely meaningless?
Sort of. According to Chuckie V, we ALL have the POTENTIAL to do it. but…

“The thing is, few of us actually attempt to “do it.”

Why?

Because “doing it” takes dedication and discipline and diligence and enough desire to override and overcome all the hard work necessary. And yet we possess the wherewithal—the audacity—to complain that we have chosen not to do it. “Boy, but if I did make that choice…”

Potential outcome is not governed by physical potential, but by choosing to reach said outcome, then committing to it, then having actually reached it. That is how potential is measured, at the finish line. It is past tense, or it is all pretense.”

Well said, CV.

Take a chance, experiment, read about something from a perspective you would not normally agree with. You might grow.
