What does it mean by the quote “If you are trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be”?

This is a powerful quote that will motivate someone to elicit his/her inner potential.

Yes, we have that something within us that we are trying to protect. Sometimes it’s already fine if we hide it for ourselves because of the worries that what if it won’t work? What if I fail? What if people don’t like it? What if they will laugh at me? or what if it will only embarrass me?

If you are trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be means in life.

We are all extraordinary for different reasons and in different circumstances.

Sometimes we don’t feel like we need to come out of our comfort zone because it isn’t necessary. We feel like doing that thing will only ruin what’s normal with us, and what makes us comfortable every single day.

But thinking of these worries, and not thinking of the good possibilities that they could bring won’t help us develop the potential that we might be hiding within ourselves for a very long time. Yes, life is unpredictable, but we will never know that we can do something if we don’t give it a try. We may be facing criticism, hardships, challenges, and stress but one thing is for sure if we courageously do it is that we are making the right decision. Keep in mind that we only live once with the body that we have now. So don’t just stay there, be your best because you are amazing!
