Unlimited potential exists all around us at all times.
The potential to become, occurs when something acts as a catalyst for change,
either a change from nothing to something,
or to change the state from something to something else.

This is similar to something I read recently:

If you always do what you’ve always done,
you’ll always get what you’ve already got.

To make a change, one must find a catalyst, a seed, or some kind of impetus… or the change will never happen!
