REFERENCE14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
REFERENCE16 Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 17 And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lords money. Matt 25:14-18 (KJV)

REDEFINING THE SUBJECTUsing positive thinking as a means to take advantage of your unique and inherent talents for influence.
PURPOSE OF POTENTIALThe purpose of man‟s potential is to dominate. Not other men, but in your own area of influence (your niche). Man‟s major problem is his abuse of the dominion mandate; he wants to put others into slavery (under control), he wants to compete with other men, he wants to be a duplicate of the other man.
POSITIVE THINKING AND THE QUEST FOR DISCOVERY1. Am created to be a creator. Gen.1:28.2. Am created to fulfill a purpose (that must be discovered) and not my private ambition. Gen.1:28.
PRINCIPLES OF TALENT (POTENTIAL)1. Man‟s success is tied to it.2. It is not determined by man; not for man‟s private interpretation, but for his discovery.3. It is a fragment of God‟s potency in man.4. No man is void of potential.5. Every man becomes „his potential‟.6. It is in it‟s raw state in man.7. Man is accountable to God for his potential.8. It is your birthright, your gift from God and to humanity.
HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL?1. Enquire from your manufacturer. Jer.33:3 God is the sole manufacturer of the product „man‟. God is in the best position to ask this question; not your college teacher, your friends and associates, your parents. They could in any way be used as instruments.
HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL?2. Deep self-analysis. What do I love to do effortlessly well, even without formal education (grace @ work)? (Gen.40:5-8) What stirs uncommon anger in you(passion- in-disguise)? Acts 7:20-30. What are my unique experiences? (1 Sam.17:36)
2 continued What brings me utmost fulfillment and joy after doing, even without financial reward? (Paul Allen, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods). What do you do that brings about generation of unusual ideas without struggles.
HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL?3. Visionary search of scriptures and books of anointed interpreters. (Luke 4:16-20, 1 Cor.2:9&10) God‟s word is the book of potentials. (John 1:1-5) Every man‟s potential is part in scriptures.
HOW TO DISCOVER YOUR POTENTIAL?4. Stewardship & Apprenticeship. Luke 16:12 He that walks with the wise, shall be wise. All great success-stories from scriptures and in our contemporary times, many found theirs through this means. (The Apostles, Moses, Elisha, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford etc).
POSITIVE THINKING AND MAXIMIZING YOUR TALENT (Potential)1. It creates in you self-confidence, thereby boosting your self-esteem. (Joshua 1:5-9)2. It makes you turn challenges into possibilities. (Caleb & Joshua).3. Births in you in mindset of excellence. Ps.71:17-18.4. It makes you see „greatness‟ in „little‟, „success‟ in „failure‟ etc.
