As Donald Trump once said, “Without Passion you have no energy. Without energy you have nothing.”
So, think about your own life and remember a time when you were feeling down and lifeless. I bet you felt you couldn’t be bothered and certainly were not up for adventures and who-knows-what-you-might-discover. Just see yourself in that time in your life…. and if you had a colour to symbolise that time, what colour comes to mind?
Now, with a swift wriggle of your body, or a clap of your hands, get rid of those glooopy feelings because it’s time to change the scene.
Remember a time in your life when you were enthusiastic
Now remember a time in your life when you felt enthusiastic, on top of the world and ready to go-go-go even if you didn’t know for sure exactly where you were go-go-going. Life had possibilities and you enjoyed most every moment. Take a moment to see yourself then. And, if you had a colour to symbolise that time, what would it be?
Now, if I was a betting woman, I’d lay down a hefty wad of cash that your first colour was dull, lacklustre or murky while your second colour was vibrant and lively, full of energy.
How do I know? As much as I would love to lay claim to a magical wisdom comparable to Yoda from Star Wars, it’s simple.
In the first case you were what I call ‘living dead.’ Disengaged from your passion, there ain’t no energy. So you would associate with a ‘lifeless’ colour in this state. In the second case you were plugged into your Passion and so had bags of energy and oh so good feelings. Result? A vibrant, lively colour.
As the man said, without Passion you truly have nothing!
Watch out for my next blog post when I’ll show you the difference between Passion with a big P and passion with a small p, and why the difference is important.
