Our optimal human potential is the fullest expression of our individuality and potential. This can only be achieved if we do not face any adversity during our developmental stages, which include childhood, puberty, early adulthood, parenthood, mid-adulthood and late adulthood. The human mind is an infinitely powerful force, but is limited by time and space. There are many ways to develop our potential, but one of the most important ways to do that is to understand human psychology.
While human potential can be appropriated by disciplines, it is best if the term is accepted and understood as a whole. Human potential is the capacity of every human to develop and mature with minimum disadvantages due to structural and environmental factors. However, there are many things that can negatively affect our potential. The first thing we must understand is that human potential is not a static quantity within the brain. Rather, it’s an ever-changing process that interacts with contextual factors.
The second thing is the meaning of human potential. Many authors focus on the different vectors that make up our expression of human potential. However, the authors emphasize the overall set of processes that impact our ability to express our potential and to develop our personal qualities beyond cognitive capabilities. Dai proposes a middle ground where these two approaches are complementary. If we ignore our potential, we limit the possibilities of growth and transformation.
