To be termed impotent is to be in a state where one is seen as being unable to perform, inactive, ineffective, infertile, non productive, weak, useless, lacking the power to become, helpless.
But if the word impotent is well looked into, one will discover the word POTENT is in there and that to me means even in an impotent state in which a man can be in any area of life, it is possible for him to still become potent. The question then is, how do I make one who everyone already see as impotent become potent?
Let’s do a simple word expansion, expand POTENT a little bit and you will get POTENTIAL. Potential is what a man has the ability to BECOME but which he’s not yet. Potentials are the unseen qualities, gifts, talents, character, leader and many more which a man could POSSIBLY BECOME but at the moment isn’t.
It therefore means, if only we can SEE BEYOND the impotent state of men in the area of their finance, academics, marriage, morals, spiritual capacity, mental strength, physique, we will realize those around us can still become potent in life IF ONLY we discover the wealth of potentials in them.
This is the only way a blind man could have been a music producer, a drug addict become a Pastor, a man without hands and legs a motivational speaker, a man with damaged spinal cord render sweet melodies to the world from his wheelchair, a man who lost everything become world no 1 again in a particular sport, a child found by the bush in a carton become the governor of the same state years after.
If only we could see people differently, rather than join the world in condemning them due to their state of impotency/helplessness, we will discover the great things they could possibly transform into only if we discover their potentials and consciously help them nurture those potentials. Your SINGULAR HELP might be all required to TRANSFORM the life of an IMPOTENT man to becoming POTENT.
How do you relate to those around you:
* You discover their impotency or their potentials, that is, their area of weakness or their strength?
* You mock their impotency or capitalize on their potentials?
Remember, POTENT is hiding in IMPOTENT.
