Overview
There are all kinds of reasons why people fail tofulfill their potential. Perhaps they lack opportunity, perhaps they lack support, perhaps they lack toolsor training or education. But everyone has potential.This I know. Our Founders knew it too. They had theradical insight that the right to fulfill your potential to use your God-given gifts is a right that comesfrom God and cannot be taken away by government.
Since the 2006 publication of her "New York Times"bestseller, "Tough Choices," former Hewlett-PackardCEO Carly Fiorina has faced a new round of challenges.She ran for the Senate as a Republican indeep-blue California but was unable to unseat theentrenched incumbent. She battled breast cancer, wondering if she d even survive. Worst of all, shesuffered the devastating loss of a beloved daughter.Yet despite these setbacks and tragedies, she remainsundaunted: I ve come to see lessons and blessings inthese passages. I know now that life is not measuredin time. Life is measured in love and positive contributionsand moments of grace.
Now, Fiorina shares the lessons she s learnedfrom both her difficulties and triumphs. Drawingon her experience as a pioneering business and nonprofitleader, a politically active citizen, and a parent, she diagnoses the largest problem facing our countrytoday: untapped potential. Too often, Americanmen and women are held back by systems that preventthem from working and flourishing. Too manypeople lose hope for themselves. Too many lack theopportunity to use their gifts and live lives of meaning, dignity, and purpose.
In 2014, Fiorina launched the Unlocking PotentialProject, a new grassroots organization, to share a message with those who worry about America sfuture: we have all the resources we need to prosper, but we don t tap into them. By ignoring conservativeprinciples or failing to articulate those principles inways that connect with regular people politicianshave failed their constituents, abandoning them tothe crushing burden of our bloated government.
Fiorina believes that politics, like business, isprimarily about people. With warmth and compassion, she provides a vision that reaches across theusual barriers of gender, race, income, and partyaffiliation to craft a message that appeals to a widerange of Americans: a message of hope. As shelearned facing life s challenges, Hope is a curiouslystrong thing. Her story and her ideas will restorehope to those discouraged about the future."
