This is a question regarding one's potential. Very few people in life reach their full potential because of lack of wise counsel or fear.  There are great minds which will never be unlocked because they rest behind the bars of a jail cell. The potential for greatness exists within every person, but the key to unlock it rests within the willingness of a person to not accept failure as an option. Mothers have been known to lift cars when their children were in danger. This lets us know that the ability was always there, but it required the circumstance to bring it out.
