We all feel somehow underused and overworked at our jobs.
Underused because we are forced to do tasks that feel like we don't use our brain's entire capacities.
Tasks we sometimes tell ourselves a trained monkey could do. Tasks we didn't need that expensive diploma for. Tasks we don't need to wear those fancy clothes for.
Overworked because we work for hours and hours, days and days doing mind numbing tasks that underuse our brains.
Sometimes for many, many years.
And then at some point we start to burn out.
We start to feel empty inside.
We start to feel like we're wasting all our potential.
Our potential to change the world.
Our potential to leave a dent in the universe.
Our potential to change people's lives.
To live our dreams.
To actually become our dreams.
And then we start to look for who's to blame.
We start to blame our bosses.
The stock market.
God damn it. The economy!
Sometimes we even start to hate our lives a bit.
At least we start to hate our jobs.
But the truth is that there's only one person to blame.
There's only one person than can unleash your potential.
There's only one person to even grasp your entire potential.
And it's not your boss.
It's not your colleagues.
It's not your spouses.
And it's not your kids.
It's the person you see every freaking morning when you get up, walk to the bathroom, wipe the sleep out of your face and look in the mirror.
That's the only person!
That's the only person that can help you to unleash your true potential.
And no one else.
There's no one else that will make your magic work.
There's no one else that can light your candle on fire and turn it into a wild fire.
There's no one else that might be able to pull off the biggest thing humanity has ever seen.
There's no one else but you..
