“There are all kinds of reasons why people fail
to fulfill their potential. Perhaps they lack
opportunity, perhaps they lack support, perhaps they
lack tools or training or education. But everyone has
potential. This I know. Our Founders knew it too. They
had the radical insight that the right to fulfill your
potential— to use your God-given gifts—is a right that
comes from God and cannot be taken away by
Since the 2006 publication of her
New York Times bestseller, Tough Choices,
former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina has faced a
new round of challenges. She ran for the Senate as a
Republican in deep-blue California but was unable to
unseat the entrenched incumbent. She battled breast
cancer, wondering if she’d even survive. Worst of all,
she suffered the devastating loss of a beloved
daughter. Yet despite these setbacks and tragedies, she
remains undaunted: “I’ve come to see lessons and
blessings in these passages. I know now that life is
not measured in time. Life is measured in love and
positive contributions and moments of
Now, Fiorina shares the lessons she’s
learned from both her difficulties and triumphs.
Drawing on her experience as a pioneering business and
nonprofit leader, a politically active citizen, and a
parent, she diagnoses the largest problem facing our
country today: untapped potential. Too often,
American men and women are held back by systems that
prevent them from working and flourishing. Too
many people lose hope for themselves. Too many lack
the opportunity to use their gifts and live lives of
meaning, dignity, and purpose.
In 2014, Fiorina
launched the Unlocking Potential Project, a new
grassroots organization, to share a message with those who
worry about America’s future: we have all the resources
we need to prosper, but we don’t tap into them. By
ignoring conservative principles—or failing to
articulate those principles in ways that connect with
regular people—politicians have failed their
constituents, abandoning them to the crushing burden of
our bloated government.
Fiorina believes that
politics, like business, is primarily about people.
With warmth and compassion, she provides a vision that
reaches across the usual barriers of gender, race,
income, and party affiliation to craft a message that
appeals to a wide range of Americans: a message of
hope. As she learned facing life’s challenges, “Hope is
a curiously strong thing.” Her story—and her ideas—will
restore hope to those discouraged about the future.
