IMAGINE Life in Technicolor
Have you ever had one of those moments where you looked around your life and realized the technicolor sense of aliveness you once knew now seems drab, gray, and monotone?
It is not time to panic. No one spends their entire lives in a state of perma-bliss. But it also doesn’t mean that you should wait around and hope that some unicorn driving a magic bus will show up and offer you a ride.
The reality is that sometimes we get stuck in offices, at desks, and on screens. Most people don’t realize that our environment, our conversations, and the language we use with ourselves create the foundation of our reality, and when we start to change those things, we begin to change our reality.
When I was a child, I became fascinated by painting imaginatively detailed images of rooms that evoked different emotional states for people who entered them. Ever since that time, I had a sense that if we could imagine the environment we want for ourselves, we could create it. It is through imagination that we can visualize the uncreated world.
I am still that same kid with that same fascination. It’s just more grounded and refined today.
A client of mine who is a senior leader never thought he could get to the C-suite, but by shifting his inner and outer environment, he has created a reality that he had never seen before. It began by creating it first in his mind and then taking the steps in the physical world. What would it be like for you if what feels dreary, drab, or monotone was replaced with fresh and vibrant colors?
Believe it or not, it comes down to imagining new possibilities and then choosing to shift your environment, your conversations, and your internal language.
