How many times do you say it? How many times do you really, I mean really mean it?
One of my favorite bloggers, Michael Hyatt, is currently writing a book on the concept of wow and is processing some of his thoughts through his blog. Recently he posted 20 experiences that wowed him. It’s worth the read.
However, this post isn’t about wow. It’s is about positioning.
Wow rarely happens in the day-to-day. Perhaps it’s because we become too familiar? Or, maybe it’s because we aren’t looking for it?
The essence of wow is experienced when your expectations are not just met, or slightly exceeded, but when it so captures your attention that nothing could take away from the moment. In fact, that moment is etched, forever.
I know a lot of people who are scared of wow. It’s not that they don’t want it, but they rarely leave what’s comfortable and position themselves for the wildly unexpected.
Setting ourselves up for wow requires forward movement, faith and even risk. It requires you to try something new.
Wow rarely finds you. It first, requires you to be positioned to be wowed.
