A Purple Cow Is Always Memorable and Recognizable…!

10개월 전

Hi, Steemians!

There is a whole lot of competition in the world of business today. If you want to make a name for yourself in any strand of economic presence, you need to understand the value of uniqueness.
This is where the argument of the purple cow comes in; the technique that many entrepreneurs and dreamers use as a conscious weapon to turn the tide of chance to their advantage and achieve success on a large scale.
To understand this technique, you need to first consider how the human mind works.

Imagine that you are backpacking across Europe. You come across many interesting sights that challenge the depths of your imagination. You find some of these sights more memorable than the rest.
Some of them even stick in your memory for many years to come. But what is this different element that stimulates your memory in a more profound way?
The mechanism is basically like this: Imagine that you have to cross a road everyday to get to work. On the road you see a herd of cows. One day, you notice something different. On the side of the road, there is a purple cow minding its own business.
Now, understandably, we do not have purple cows. The memory of seeing a purple cow for the first time is always going to remain with you. Because that is something unique and unprecedented.

Not to insult anyone’s unbridled allegiance to the human race, but if we assume that we are all cows of a herd in society, then the cow that stands out among the rest is the purple cow.
If you want to be seen or heard, you need to do something different. You need to do something unique.
It should be noted that this argument is not a question of value. Value in itself is a whole different problem that we do well not to get into. The thing we are talking about today is that doing what everybody else is doing or even imitating them is not going to get you anywhere.
If you want to be heard, then do something differently. In a world of normal cows, be the purple one; the purple cow that catches the attention of everyone who sees it.

In the world that is striving for ordinariness, a person with creativity and perspective always stands out. The power of the world is always eyeing a person like that out.
In time, a purple cow has more opportunities than any other cow in the herd. Strive to be different and unique.
Look at society’s problems from a different angle and find solutions that are new. Bringing your purple cow to consciousness is one of the greatest efforts you could undertake in the road to success.

Damn I will appreciate you for choosing such an interesting title for a subject - uniqueness. true, we should learn to find our unique talent and bring it in the world.
Keep inspiring us all.

Greetings @chbartist

Good publication, being the purple cow distinguishes one of the other cows

What should be identified is what is the pattern to develop to be able to stand out from others.

That advice was given to me when I was in college, that I stood out from the crowd, that I tried to make a difference at all times. This is something that we must apply in all areas of our life. I like the way you explained it. :)

@chbartist the current fascilitator in the front this time era for all revolutionary mindes is " the good take care of looking unique and also presenting unique. A man always praised by the who have the ability to replace a good one with an old and stereotype manner. Upcoming generatons are most advance and smart because they always ready to learn from past.

Great verify how can you stand on top on business something do different types and spacial and unique through own imagenation I hope trying new anything that's demands of time find a way success sure.
Sir Thanks for sharing your idea.

"Being the purple one" in this century is one of the most important issue I think.. No matter in which sector you work, we are always suppoused be authentic and creative.. It looks maybe easy to say but I think it requires too much effort.. We should learn how to think creatively..

It's a very effective way but someone have to be exceptionally good for this. Thank you @chbartist pointing out this matter.

Very true @chbartist, we as humans take notice of the thing that is different, and often remembers it better because of that.

And by the way, your eye as a profile pic is an example of that, something different.

Let's embrace being #unique, and stand out from the crowd!

Very insightful.. Thank you, @chbartist!!!

If you’re remarkable, it’s likely that some people won’t
like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable.
Nobody gets unanimous praise ever. Criticism comes to those
who stand out.

Excellent overview @chbartist and you are right, the effect of the purple cow works very well and you should always use it. Now there are a lot of solutions that many use to achieve success and if we find our unusual method in our progress, then success is guaranteed to us!

Es maravillosa la manera en la que haces que los lectores vean las cosas,tus publicaciones me han parecido muy interesantes e incluso alentadoras,para mi,tener escritos como el tuyo en esta plataforma hace que se sienta cada vez mejor ser parte de ésta asombrosa comunidad que es Steemit.
Hace un tiempo que quiero publicar algo sobre el statu-quo y justo hoy leo tus palabras y me siento más inspirada a terminarlo y publicarlo.
Sigue con tu contenito,pues creo que vale leerte @chbartist

Nothing left to do what purple cow can do apart of taking attention towards own
@chbartist creativity and perspective always stands out. Than no need to be purple cow

The purple cow, I hadn’t heard of this expression before so nice to learn of its existence. Am now pondering on how I can apply the concept to my business to make it stand out and be remembered. Great inspirational rave🙏

Being unique is certainly a great way to differentiate yourself from others trying to do the same. We often fall victim to commoditizing ourselves which leads to us being replaceable and in a world where more is wanted for less, we cannot be surprised when we are replaced for an alternative. Automation will come and if we do not stand out as understanding and being part of the change given our uniqueness, we will not be able to survive.

Oh yeah!
Some kinda same as that most people are eating breakfast, then not me, I'm unique.
For me breakfast is breaking the fast, to break a fast, a violation of the law of fasting.
I guess the slogan of food industries is very captivating, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day."

The line “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day” was invented in the 19th century by Seventh Day Adventists James Caleb Jackson and John Harvey Kellogg to sell their newly invented breakfast cereal.

I think you are a purple cow on steemit, and because of this article there will be a lot of purple cows coming.

Hola @chbartist. Totalmente de acuerdo que para destacar entre la pluralidad se requiere de esfuerzo dedicación y mucha creatividad para hacer la diferencia.

Because of that damn Milka ad, many small children really believe(d) that cows are purple!
They haven't seen a different one.
