One of the few quality reads on the Harvard Business Review blogs is Umair Haque. In this post he writes about the collision between the idea that most every person - and not just a select (white, male) few, can aspire to, well, limitless potential, and not just lives of drudgery and poverty. But, he writes, "What happens when limitless potential crashes headlong into boundaries, prison bars, and maybe even self-imposed limitations? What happens... when we sell ourselves short?" Not to say there aren't real barriers between people and the lives they could be leading. But the first, and most important revolution, is in one's own mind, in believing that we are capable of more, and deserving of more.
