“I think it’s truly a tragedy that the majority of people (myself included) never fulfill their potential and live the life they truly want. What is the #1 cause of mediocrity and unfulfilled potential and how can someone overcome it?” ~ Beth

Dear Beth,

The #1 cause of unfulfilled potential is never deciding that NOW matters more than any other time in your life, and thinking that there is always “someday” to fulfill your potential and improve your life. The reality is that what you’re doing and who you’re being TODAY is determining your future.

So, you must sit down, unplug, and do 2 things:

1. Get Clarity on what you really want, why you want it, what’s holding you back, and what you need to start doing NOW to make your success inevitable.

2. Get an “Accountability Partner” to make sure you follow through.

Clarity + Accountability = Results. So, don’t wait. What you do (or don’t do) today matters more than any other time in your life.
