According to Thesaurus.com "POTENTIAL is the possibility for achievement."
Synonyms: ability, aptitude, capability, capacity, power, the makings, what it takes, wherewithal; and today, I was questioning mine.
With 106 more posts to go after this one, I was questioning my ability to see this through. I know that I have the capability to put something out there every day; but I want it to be a quality product; and I was feeling like I was starting to falter. Couple that with my new job, and some tasks that I wasn't prepared for and my wherewithal was definitely in question.
Feeling like I needed inspiration, I went in search of some quotes, and I found ten that I found very reassuring. So as always, in the interest of (say it with me,) "The GREATER Good," I''m going to share some of the best quotes that I found on the subject of POTENTIAL.

I feel better already. Re-charged, and ready to persevere.
Till next time...
