Dynamics of the Amazement Cycle
Let us understand the entire journey of the amazement cycle to observe the underlying
patterns of emotions and connect the same with logic. Using the same technique, we can
harness the power of emotions and ideas.
We star the journey by analyzing what is unknown to us. We start by sensing the difference –sometimes even as a challenge to the current behaviors or beliefs. However, we might end up not understanding the entire idea or concept –let alone the internalization of the idea. As a result, our reaction to the same is of worry and caution.
A famous embryologist from Germany, Karl Ernst von Baer, observed that the cycle of truth is known to traverse across three stages –initially, people say it is not true, then people call the same against the religion, and finally, we realize that we knew the truth all along.
The respective emotions of denials and resistance are prevalent in the history of the origin of our species. When our ancestors found something novel, like the hustle of the nearby bushes, it was considered as the best action to get cautious and take flight. However, in the modern era, this is not the only option that we have.
Just like our ancestors, who back then looked at the fire with curiosity instead of fear, we give into intrigue after worrying at some point in life. If you wish to nurture the notion of intrigue in your personality, it is recommended to indulge in some play & experimentation. During the early stages of the development of a business or idea, we keep competing on our imagination during the early stages. At the same time, it is recommended to lower down our restrictions on imagination and curiosity to unveil the hidden possibilities.
Whether we get attracted to a novel idea or not, there are higher chances that original champions of the idea would continue propagating the respective gospel. However, at this point in time, we start getting bored by the concept of repetitive messages. While intellectually we might realize that there is a need to embrace the given idea, still emotionally, we start resisting the message. We become resentful with the idea of becoming a part of someone else’s promotional scheme.
Boredom is known to play a vital role in the amazement cycle. We can consider the same as a legitimate part of the amazement process. We cannot always remain at the highest pitch of excitement. Once we have encountered the birth of an idea or business, it is quite a natural process to get bored of the same eventually. In the modern culture in which there is an abundance of purposefulness & inspiration, it becomes imperative to understand the importance of the notion that comes after inspiration & amazement.
Towards the later stages of business or idea execution, the concept of repetitive emphasis might become positive annoying. As such, most individuals would prefer ignoring the same and moving to the next idea of intrigue.
