To Reach Your Potential Expand Your Capacity

Every now and then a man’s mind is stretched by a new idea and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

Recent research suggests that you can grow your brain just like you grow a muscle. That means the more you practice, the stronger it gets.

There’s no doubt; new ideas enlarge our minds. They also create new opportunities and open our eyes to what’s possible. 

"What's possible" is the definition I like for potential. There are so many things you can do with your life. But the only way you step into more and more of your potential is by continuing to grow. And growing is all about expanding your capacity. Think of it like this: Capacity is what you got; potential is what you want. The more capacity you get, the more potential you reach.
