The Greatest General Never

Story by Mark Twain:
A man died and met Saint Peter at the gates of heaven. Recognizing the saint's knowledge and wisdom, he wanted to ask him a question.
"Saint Peter," he said, "I have been interested in military history for many years. Tell me, who was the greatest general of all times?"
Peter quickly responded, "Oh that is a simple question. It's that man right over there."
The man looked where Peter was pointing and answered, "You must be mistaken. I knew that man on earth, and he was just a common laborer."
"That's right," Peter remarked, "But he would have been the greatest general of all time- if he had been a general."

Unused potential usually comes from not being able to see what is before us. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the life around us that we can't see the life before us. Don't quit. Don't be contained by what you see around you.

If this story was written about you, what would it say? What would you will be the greatest "never" at.
