An individual's power to think is often doubted. Firstly by themselves. This produces verbal statements like, "I am not that smart!" or "I don't know." These statements are not true, yet many go through their whole lives believing them, applying them, living them. What is actually occurring is your reference point something, in this case, knowledge, is not aligned. "I don't know!" is the most ancient cry for learning, education and knowledge. Not being able to say you know something in front of others makes you seem 'stupid'. This sets you up to being pushed out of the 'herd'. The danger in evolutionary terms is you are not able to reproduce and "the species" will die out. The ancient bridge to acceptance became either, "I am not smart, or I don't know." Education opens the door to learning and knowledge. Travel is the antidote of ignorance. The Alpha Potential uses tools which allow you to retrain your brain to think. Yes! You can learn to think.

If we view life as a game where we are juggling the five balls of work, family, health, friends and spirituality. It is easy to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls - family, health, friends and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. Any damage or breakage is irreversible. For this reason we must strive to attain balance in our lives.
