"Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb at tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid." - Albert Einstein
How do you measure potential? It's hard since it's all about the amount of success a person could achieve if given the resources and motivations.
Everyone has things they're good at and things they're not good at. To expect a fish to climb a tree is unreasonable. If you judge someone only by the things they can't do, of course they'll come up short.
We are passionate about recognizing teens using their talents!
We receive many nominations for the teen spotlights based on academic performance but for many kids this is not a good measure of potential. For some teens, this academic standard is like measuring a fish climbing a tree.
At Potential magazine, we are passionate about recognizing teens who use their skills and God-given gifts to accomplish goals and seek excellence. Our first winners of "Reach Your Potential" are Brittany Urquhart and Molly Catherine Brown. Check out this link of Brittany and her mom, Gina: click here
Please help us find Teens Reaching for their Potential. We are expanding into the Huntsville, Birmingham, and Mobile areas. We are looking for kids doing cool things and their parents, of course! Click for the "Reach your Potential" Scholarship Form
We can't wait to meet the next teens!
