Opportunity & Potential

“Nothing is more common than unfulfilled potential.” – Howard Hendricks

The quote above made me think of some of the CPAs I have talked to over the years. During my presentations and advisory sessions, I have always urged CPAs to not turn a blind eye to the great opportunities awaiting them.

I challenge CPAs to be the best they can be. I try to help them reach/realize their full potential. Often, they cannot see it. They fear failure and don’t want to risk embarrassment.

If you are reading this blog post, don’t let your CPA firm be the one that always holds back. Don’t wait until many other CPA firms move forward, and then you move ahead cautiously!

You don’t have to be on the “bleeding edge.” But try to be on the leading edge. Open your eyes to opportunity and embrace it.

Winston Churchill once said: ”A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. Be that optimist.
