A Promise in the Making
You are a promise in the making. You are a could-be. Milton Berle, American comic, once said this: “I’d rather be a ‘could-be’ if I can’t be an ‘are’.”
A “could- be” always has a hope for something yet to come. Hope is one of the themes I love to write about. Hope speaks of what is yet to be. It speaks of the future. It speaks of dreams that are still alive and vivid in one’s heart and mind.
We may not be an “are” yet, but there still beats within us the possibilities that it can still happen.
Bill and Gloria Gaither wrote this lyric a few years.
I am a promise
I am a possibility
I am a promise
With a capital “C”
I am a great big bundle of
Sometimes we need to remember this: before we become an “are” we are a “could be”. We are a promise in the making.
With every skill developed there is always a learning curve. With every accomplishment there is always the dreaming and the planning before it becomes an “are”. Every great skyscraper, institution, Fortune 500 company and successfully elected politician first began as a promise in the making.
I write a lot about human potential. I think it is a significant concept, and one that individuals must grab onto with conviction if they are to live in their dominant strength.
Your passion is a good indicator of your potential.
Your private thoughts are good indicators of the promising areas in your life.
You are a worthwhile individual, no matter your age, your economic status, where you live, what you look like, or what language you speak.
You are a promise in the making. You are a HUGE possibility.
