Most of the times we feel like we are doing too much but it turns out that the people around us believe that we can be more, we can be great or even better that we already are. Maybe it is true maybe it is not but when we look at it in a different perspective they might be seeing what we ourselves don’t have an opportunity to see. Have you heard men talk about finding their own Mitchell Obama? Why would they want their future wives to be like Mitchell? Or maybe why would they always refer to her? Sometimes when you dating someone and they say they want you to be their Mitchell you would not understand why or maybe you will think he sees less in you or maybe what you are doing is not satisfactory to what he wants you to do. Hey ladies this is not an insult it is more like he wants you to unleash that potential that you are sitting on, he sees a woman more than what you are. It is a wakeup call.
It being said alone will not make you go that extra mile, it is you believing that you got greatness within you that will enable you take the first step. To believe is also a step and not many of us believe in themselves but is also a process to believe and it is waking up every morning telling yourself that you can and you are better than anyone and walking with your head high with confidence on your sleeves. Seems easy but how many can always remember to do that small task? Not so many I believe but keep reminding yourself each and every day that you were born for greatness and your purposed in this life is to be great. I was once told that if you want to be great act and dress like you are already great. It already sets the pace for your brain that what am aiming is to be great.
Some off us women believe we can be more but are very lazy to be what we aspire to be. That’s a shame and a disgrace not only to the woman family but also to oneself. The reason as to why men will always be presidents and great people is that they do not bluff they stand up and deal and they will keep on being all this if we do not wake up from the potential we are sitting on. We should be ready to follow steps of great women like Mitchell Obama or Oprah Winfrey or even Hillary Clinton name them the list is endless.
How do you unleash your potential?
It is time we women wake up and join men in this race to greatness. It only needs pushing oneself and surrounding yourself with positivity. I hope we will keep up to that and be the Mitchells to our Obamas.
