a moment of sudden revelation or insight.
Let me tell you why I really like this word – Epiphany. It is not because it actually sounds cool or different, (even though it does) it goes beyond that. Really, it is about those moments in life where we really connect with an experience or idea which has a deep and true impact. So much so, that it shifts how we thought about things before and allows us to open our eyes to see a whole new way of thinking about something. Ultimately, this word is about realizing something. Learning something. Knowing something. Understanding something. This moment changes you as a person.
Can you remember a moment or time that you have experienced this feeling? The time when the light ‘went on’ for you and challenged you to think differently and move your understanding.
Provide an example of this moment and explain what happened. What shifted inside of you?
