So how do WOW and A-HA work?
WOW is something about admiration and amazement. The phenomenon is like a miracle that we cannot repeat. The point: this is an external phenomenon, we do not influence it.
A-HA (I translate it as “oh, how!”) is about the realization and knowledge of the secret meaning or knowledge, this is the opening of a “chest with riches”, which can now be used. The point: we fully influence the phenomenon, it depends only on us whether the experience will be valuable.
Example: we solve any problem (mathematical, logical, business one):
⁃ we see how someone else masterfully copes with the solution
⁃ feel admiration and / or even slight envy
⁃ can't repeat
⁃ it dawned on us HOW to solve it!
⁃ we experience delight (admiration for ourselves)
⁃ But most importantly: this is OUR experience, we can repeat it!
⁃ We have grown new neural connections
The ability to see WOW is the experience of being seen, and the ability to get to A-HA is the skill to turn the sight into one's own experience.
