Last month I ventured down to Wichita, Kansas to present at a supervisors meeting for the Kansas Turnpike Authority. I had a great time sharing my magic with them, and talking to them about what it means to share their magic with the people they lead. I met some very fun, wonderful, and respectable individuals, and had a great time chatting with people before and after the presentation.
When I asked for examples of the pickpocket mentality, one gentleman told me about a time his sister received car service. She told him something wasn't right, and when he checked the car he saw they hadn't tightened everything down properly. He took the car back to the station and notified the manager, just to let him know that this kind of mistake can ruin a car. The manager found the man responsible, and humiliated him by publicly chewing and cussing him out. We agreed the healthy and more effective response would have been to take the man aside, and quietly and calmly explain to him the seriousness of his mistake. This was a great everyday, practical example of how the pickpocket mentality pokes it's ugly head. For more examples of the pickpocket mentality, check out my book here.

We are on month three of “revealing” the 5 different types of magic that people possess. These types of magic are found in the word M.A.G.I.C. This takes us to the “G” in MAGIC, which stands for: gifts.
This is probably the easiest type of magic to identify. Magical gifts are not about the gifts you give, but the gifts you possess. What are your natural abilities, strengths, skills or God-given talents? Does your strength fall in the area of the arts, such as music, painting, or drama? Is it an athletic ability? Is it the gift of hospitality? Were you a born leader? Do you have a high IQ? Are you creative? Maybe you are the person on your team who always brings the best ideas to a project. The “gifts” area of magic means you were born with the potential to flourish in a certain area and in a special way.
