It's not often that you come across individuals who have gone out and done their thing at a young age. Well, Scott is one of those who has done just that. I first met Scott at a Positive Psychology World Congress where he was presenting a fascinating talk on creativity, day dreaming and imagination. He is well known for some superb works including books such as 'Ungifted Intelligence' and 'Wired to Create'. Scott (amongst other things) is also Scientific Director of the Imagination Institute (Wow!).
In true potential style I recently asked Scott if he had a message to share with students on ways to cultivate their own potential and possibilities.
Initially Scott wrote back indicating he needed some time to 'give it some thought' but to 'ping' him again!
In between the time of this honest response and the potential ping I came across the below which Scott has since re-endorsed to share.
Here it is:
"Every person on this earth is full of great possibilities that can be realized through imagination, effort, and perseverance." (Scott Barry Kaufman).
Now, hold that thought for a moment.
Okay let's flip that on you.
Here is what Scott is directly saying.
YOU HAVE GREAT POSSIBILITIES THAT CAN BE REALIZED THROUGH YOUR OWN IMAGINATION, EFFORT AND PERSEVERANCE.
Try holding this thought (returning to it in some way, shape, or form) and reminding yourself of this at least a few times today.
YOU HAVE GREAT POSSIBILITIES...
YOU CAN REALIZE THEM...
IMAGINATION, EFFORT AND PERSEVERANCE ARE YOUR FRIENDS.
