Searching For Magical Answers757

Top Contributor Steve private msg quote post Address this user
Have you ever wondered why everyone is always searching for answers to questions even though almost all of them actually know the answers? Take content marketing as an example, we all know that we should blog regularly and make it focused on our audience. You’d have to be living under a rock not to have heard this, yet most people still don’t do anything but search for easier answers to questions because the answers they have are too hard and require hard work.

@Steve

The truth is far too often we know the answer to our search. We just don't like the answer.

Or they don't want to work.

I used to be addicted to sales, I loved every aspect of sales... so much so that I attended monthly training sessions... We would cover the basics of sales from the start of the process to the end, then we would start again ... I think I did that about five or six times ... which took years.

The lesson I learned was that if you do the basics right you don't need any other magical answers ...

This is actually one of the things I want to cover on this next Hangout - we know what we need to do.. WHY don't we and more importantly WHAT can we do about it?

Good answer. I was thinking of the pervious episode. Glenda told Dorothy she didn't need to see the wizard to search for answers. She already knew them.

@morrnel working on it - that's my alternate persona besides "catalyst".. but then again I suppose mystics use catalysts to create magic!

@belew did you miss the movie growing up or did I lose you on the reference?

Mystics... a topic for another day.

"Artists use lies to tell the truth.."

This video holds the key to WHY -



..it's also why the many ways we re-tell the same stories resonates across cultures around the world!

It's a path Moses followed from Egypt to Israel 3500 years before Campbell coined the phrase. Greeks even 1000 years earlier. Chinese and Japanese probably even earlier.

I am disappointed in that with all the cumulative wisdom of many many many years here ... nobody has found the secret.

the problem is the time management, money and being caught up in the technical issue.

@Belew - if it hasn't changed, it probably involves something inherent to people and their natures.

I found the answer!!!

Wait! It just disappeared.

Is there somebody else doing magic here that I don't know about?
