I think that every human has infinite potential. But he/she is restricted by two things. Firstly by his beliefs and then by his imagination.
Thus whenever faced by two or more choices, choose the one that liberates rather than the one that binds.
It's like a decision tree. The more number of small decisions you take in the right direction the closer to realizing your infinite potential you become. Also the more liberated you are. That's the aim right ?
