One mother strives to work and raise her children on her own. Another pushes herself to live a healthier life by keeping the snack aisle out of her house. Both are following their passion to realize their potential now and every day. American Express Canada wants to see how you realize your potential for a chance to win.
Like we said in our earlier post, thinking about yourself as a Potentialist can feel overwhelming. Even Michelle broke into a sweat when we started working on this project as Amex Ambassadors this year.
A Potentialist is someone who lives his or her life with optimism and passion, someone who follows a dream instead of just dreaming. Potential exists in every one of us. To celebrate the idea of being a Potentialist, American Express Canada has launched a “Realize Your Potential with Pinterest” contest. Pin your own images that inspire you to realize your potential every day and you could win one of three $5,000 American Express Gift Cards.
For myself, ignoring my inner voice enabled me to realize my potential, taking myself from a non-runner to completing my first 5k. For Michelle, meditation helps calm her mind so she can see her potential more clearly. How do you realize your potential? How do you live your life with passion? Learned to swim as an adult so you could enjoy the water with your kids? Pin it. Played a whole game of soccer with your daughter without passing out? Pin it. Switched from coffee to water during the day? Pin it.
Be sure to share how you realize your potential by May 26th, 11:59 pm EST. After that date, we’ll be working with American Express Canada, along with other Amex Ambassadors Hip Urban Girl and The Planet D, to choose the winners of the $5000 American Express Gift Cards.
We want to see your passion. We want to see your potential. We know you have it in you and live it every day. Share it with us on your own Amex Potentialist Canada board for a chance to win. For additional inspiration, take a peek at how we realize our potential on our Amex Potentialist Canada board.
