BMA is a great tool to reach your full potential!

Oprah, the Dalai Lama and, yes, even Chuck Norris advocate the same thing: “reach your full potential.” But in recent years, that term has become so readily available and mismanufactured that it no longer carries the weight it once did. We all want to get there, but we just don’t know HOW. Sorry Mr. Norris, we never got that memo with the treasure map to self-empowerment... the one with the directions, tips and various starting points... yeah, no.
The term “full potential” is so loosely passed around that it’s giving Halloween candy a run for its money. Everyone’s talking about it like it’s a place to “get to” rather than a place of  “being” at. Some people look outward for the answers, comparing themselves to airbrushed models in magazines or Ferrari-driving CEOs, not knowing all the answers we need are within. Other people try desperately to “fix” themselves, unaware that it’s a losing battle, because there’s nothing to be fixed in the first place.
The starting point to BEING your most powerful is realizing that you cannot fix yourself because you are not broken. The roadmap to the buried treasure is within you—where all the answers and wisdom lie. It’s that simple.
