PAY IT FORWARD

Why is it so critical for us to realize our boundless potential?

What IS potential in the first place? I’ve heard several definitions…but the one that really got me was this one: Potential is everything you’re supposed to be and do but have not yet done.

Wow.

You see, it’s not enough for us to say, for instance, that Africa has the potential to be the greatest continent on earth. We must act and align our action with what we believe. Without ACTION, words do not take root, purpose does not actualize, and destiny does not deliver. This is what the Bible means when it refers to ‘Faith without works…’’

The UN has said by 2050 the African population will grow (more like explode!) by an estimated 1.1 billion people. Look around you. We can barely take care of our current numbers…how will we take care of an additional billion?

To my mind, the best gifts we can give each other are the knowledge of being truly entrepreneurial, the ability to create sustainable wealth and the willingness to pay it forward.

It’s not just about us. It’s for our children…and theirs.
