We have many examples in society today of people who are not living their full potential.
Maybe they've fallen upon hard times due to the loss of a job, perhaps they suffer poor health or have lost a loved one.
Perhaps they have fallen prey to crime or have an addiction in one form or another. Perhaps at one time in their life they did something they thought unforgivable and so the scars of that undoing keeps them from achieving their true dreams.
Anyone can change for the better. We need to remind ourselves just how wonderful life is; in part, because we are witnesses and givers of love and acceptance.
