Want to Know Thyself? Follow Socrates Advice ... Know Thyself Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment. - Lao Tzu Sometimes we hide from ourselves, like a sphinx under the bedcovers ... rustling to know that we exist, but hiding from ourselves, afraid of what we might discover if we emerge out into the light. Perhaps it is only bedtime stories ... but myths, legends and fairy tales beckon us on a journey of self discovery ... to find out who we really are.

In Greek, it is written as gnothi seauton and in Latin as nosce te ipsum. A Starting Point If you want to get started, here are a few simple ideas and questions worthy of any sphinx ... whether it wears a mirrored mask or hides beneath the sheets of music.

How To Use Keywords To Sell More Kindle Ebooks Amazon is in fact a big retail search engine, so when potential book buyers start looking for a new book to read, they very often begin by searching. Therefore, you want your book to appear when people use a search term associated with your book. This will only happen though, if you have researched and selected the right keywords. Where do you start? Firstly, let’s go back one step. The two categories (genres) you have chosen are crucial, and need to be as narrowly focused as possible. Once that is done, it’s time to add your seven keywords or keyword phrases. Think about the topics, themes, geographical settings and period in your book, and start making a list of the possibilities. Because at the bottom of the first page of search results, Google give you a list of related searches, so you can note more possibilities for your keyword list. Once you have a list of possibilities, go back to Amazon. Now, in the search box, start to enter your keyword, but don’t hit enter.
