(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


The word Discovery is a great handle for a basket full of useful ideas and energies. It implies curiosity, seeking, and learning.

Discovery also means to encounter the unknown and uncertain. You can either view uncertainty through the lens of fear and hesitation, “I don’t know. I better not.” Or through the lens of wonder and delight, “I don’t know. Let’s go discover.”

When you see yourself as someone who likes to discover you have an openness about you. You are aware, alert, eager, and curious. You like to learn, create, and you enjoy participating in the process of Life. You initiate, lead, and, most importantly, benefit from discovery. Others sit and wait. Not you!

Another piece of good news is that when you are engaged with discovery as an adult you are merely repeating what you were when you were a child. As a child everything was a discovery. As an adult in discovery you are tapping into long-stored energy, eagerness, and joy.
