The plateau of latent potential

Have you ever felt like you're working hard towards your goals, but the results just don't seem to show? That's what James Clear calls the 'plateau of latent potential' - a place where progress feels slow or non-existent, and it can be tempting to give up.

But just because we can't see progress doesn't mean it's not happening. Even when it feels like we're not making any headway, we're still learning, growing, and getting closer to our goals. So let's commit to taking small steps and making consistent progress. Let's surround ourselves with supportive people who lift us up and help us stay on track. And let's embrace challenges and learn to enjoy the journey, even when it gets tough. 

The plateau of latent potential can be a tough place to be, but pushing through it is the key to unlocking our potential and our ability to make a difference in our lives and the world. So keep going - you're doing great!
