When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
Oftentimes, we misconstrue ourselves with what we can do beyond our resources. Truth is, we can only work on a limited scope, no matter how hard we try to recoil or just spring back in any given scenario. Good thing, though, is that we can maximize. Maximize what we have.
If you believe that you are rooted in a certain field or craft, maximize. If you think that playing basketball makes you a sour loser, try another sport. And when you figure out what sport leverages you among the rest, maximize. If you try to work as a sales associate and you know it deeply in your heart that you are geared for a marketing position, decide now; then maximize.
Don’t change within your bounds. Let seasons change you. Seasons reveal your inner maturity that will eventually pump up your potential.
But of course, you won’t be able to maximize anything if you haven’t touched base on your true identity.
Rule of thumb: Know yourself [better]. Knowing what you can do will just follow.
