The book, Releasing Your Potential which was authored by Dr Myles Monroe, is a sequel from the book, Understanding Your Potential.
Releasing Your Potential, is a book aimed at equipping individuals with the requisite knowledge to tap the untapped, and releasing the dormant abilities that lie within them. The author makes an astonishing remark by emphasizing that the germination of an individual’s potentials, lies in the ability of such individual to change his/her attitude and internal environment until it becomes conducive to birth the potential seed.

2. The price of greatness is responsibility. The graveyards are full of great men and women who never became great because they did not give their ability responsibility.
3. God created everything with the hidden ability to fulfill itself. In every seed there is a forest, in every fish, a school, in every bird, a flock, in every cow, a herd, in every girl, a woman, in every boy, a man, in every man, a nation.
4. Abortion is one of today’s most controversial issues. Abortion is not limited to the physical termination of a fetus in a mother’s womb. Abortion is the ignorance of responsibility and the denial of obligation. It is self comfort at the expense of fruitfulness, because all abortions sacrifice responsibility. The abortion of potential condemns the future.
