Change the way you think. Create magic in your life!™



It’s said that humans are born with only two fears; the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Together they constitute the fear of the unknown.

In the workplace, this fear of the unknown comes, most commonly, in the form of apprehension or reluctance to venture into a new territory. These fears are like chains that hold you back and limit your potential.

When you have the courage to take the risk of speaking out or taking new assignments, you break through that bondage and grow. What you will gain goes beyond cash awards or recognition. What you truly gain is self-knowledge, wisdom, illumination, exhilaration, and confidence.

Break the bonds of the unknown and step forward to a new you. Embrace your power!



A friend of mine who recently lost his job said to me, “I don’t know what I’m going to do. Where do I go from here?”

I suggested to my friend that now was the time to UNTAP his hidden potential.

I continued by telling him that the letters that make up the word “UNTAP” would show him the way.

U stands for underline your strengths. What are your attributes? Your skills? What do you like to do? Then decide on one or two goals. Don’t spread your powers in trying to do too much. Just focus on one or two goals at the most.

N represents navigate. Navigate a course that you can follow that will allow you to accomplish your goal(s).

T stands for target. Target a date by which you would like to accomplish your goal. Your target date needs to be flexible. (It could be a month, a year or 5 years.) That will give you, as Napoleon once said, “The ability to maneuver according to circumstances”.

A represents action. All the planning in the world won’t help you achieve your goal unless you follow it up with determined action.

P stands for positivity, patience, and persistence. You attitude must always be positive, and you must be patient and persistent in reaching your goal.

By following this process, you too will untap your hidden potential. And what you find might surprise you.
