In chapter 1 it explains that our “potential is world’s inheritance” which means that each of us comes into this world with an assignment to fulfill that each of us must be responsible in your responsibilities. The second principle in this chapter is “You came into the world pregnant with unlimited potential” God gives us unlimited potential to do our work and must value it. The third principle is “Creation’s destiny is tied to the release of your potential” explains that God’s creation is waiting for a man’s glory or true potential to be visible. And the last principle in this chapter 1 is “The fact that you were born is evidence that God knew earth needed the potential you are pregnant with” explains that before leaving this earth, each of us must contribute and fulfill our dreams, visions and ideas even though it’s big or small.

In chapter 2 it explains that “God placed in you to be benefit the world” it simply means that God created us because we have a purpose to fulfill. The second principle in this chapter is “Potential must be used or it will be aborted” explains that if we don’t use our skills or capabilities to do a thing it will no longer use or useless. The third principle is “Satisfaction with success kills potential” explains you must not satisfy in little or more achievements, we must give our full potential.

In chapter 3 it explain that “God created everything with potential” the best example for this passage is Genesis 1:12 describes how God created the plants and the trees, each “bearing seed according to their kinds” The first chapter in Genesis also gives an account of the creation of the birds, the creatures of the sea, the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals. Everything that God created was blessed with potential. The second principle is “What God planned came forth from the substance to which He spoke” explains in the book that first, God planned what He wanted to create. Second, He decided what kind of material substance from which the thing was to be created and, fourth, exactly what He spoke came forth from that to which He spoke.

In chapter 4 I’ll give some principles that govern potential. First, what God speaks to is the sources for what He creates. Second, all things have the same components and essence as the source from which they came. Third, everything in life has the potential to fulfill its purpose and lastly Potential is determined and revealed by the demand placed on it by its creator. Now I’ll give the principles in this chapter “You came from God” explains that were created in God's own image. The second principle is, “God gave you the ability to fulfill your potential” explains that God gave us freewill to express our maximum strength.

In chapter 5 explains that “God designed you to operate by faith” simply means that faith without work is dead. The second principle is “God has plan for your life” before you were born, God had a plan and purpose for your life....
