When something bad happens the first thing we think of is who is at fault? We are quick to point fingers, cast blame, and play the victim. But true maturity is being able to accept responsibility for our messes and mistakes, and have the courage to hold others accountable for when their actions impact us. In this week's podcast Bethany shares her funny story on how blaming the lawn mower isn't going to fix the problem.

Potential is having the capacity to become or develop into something successful in the future. Based on that definition, we all have great potential. However, if we never do anything with it, it will always be just great potential. We have to learn to put our potential into motion in our own lives and encourage others to do the same. In this week's podcast, Bethany talks about how it is more than just seeing your potential, it's time to take action and move forward in it!
