The Color’s Power

Sometimes we are ahead, sometimes we are behind. The race is long and we try to hide or show some personality attributes. However colors we wear can says a lot of our personality.
Dark colors are perceived as formal and authoritative, while light colors make the wearer appear more friendly and approachable. Bright colors convey confidence while muted colors are conservative and less threatening.
  • Black is a strong color, it conveys leadership, while brown conveys the message that you’re simple and slow to change.
  • Gray sends a message of being rock solid, wise and reliable.
  • Blue gives the impression that the person is a team player. However, navy sends a message of being honest and credible.
  • Red is a color of power. It comes across as bold and assertive.
  • White gives the feeling of being organized.
  • Green is a color often associated with a sense of calm and wellbeing, as well as wealth and prosperity.
  • Purple sends a message of being artistic and unique, while yellow signifies optimism and creativity.
Research have revealed that contrasting colors can send a message, too: “The higher degree of contrast–wearing black and white, or navy and white, for example–the more powerful you will appear,” as the New York image and style expert Carol Davidson says. “The lower the degree of contrast, the more approachable and friendly you seem.”
Psychologists say that colors has a lot of power, it can calm you, make you hungry, and even put you in the mood for love.
Color can make HAPPY !

Everything you would like to change is your power, I say one is the power of choice life has given us.

Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

We might not have everything that we want, but we have more than we need. It’s all in our attitude.

I choose to be happy, in spite of whatever drama that is going on in my life.

So, work hard.

Great sacrifice usually ends by great achievement.

Have new friends

Happy Monday!

Are you ready to live this lovely week?! Are you ready to live your dream?!

First, accept what you can’t change. Change what you can’t accept. This is one of the important keys of success. You can accept the place where you live and change the decoration.

It’s important also to allow yourself to be amused and to be interested. Having new friends can help you doing well. Try to avoid people who are complaining about every stupid thing as Samuel Johnson says “To hear complaints is wearisome alike to the wretched and the happy.” Spend some time with your favorite friends or try to have new friends. We tend to like people who we think like us, people who looks happy.

Smile more frequently! People who can’t smile due to facial paralysis think if only they can do it. Otherwise, smiling during a conversation has a direct effect on how friendly we’re perceived to be.

Golden Rule : Happy people appeal more to other people and their happiness helps them succeed.

Have a good week!

New beginning

It’s never too late to start over. If you weren’t happy with yesterday, try something different today. Do better as Ralph Waldo Emerson says ” All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.

When we try something new, we may fail at the first time. But we will get experience and we can try it twice and succeed. Never give up on something you really want. Sometimes we need to move on and look for new ambitions to be alive, to be happy.

It’s difficult to wait, but more difficult to regret. Otherwise, success is dependent to patience. Patience is not simply the ability to wait. It’s how we behave while we’re waiting. Never forget that hard work makes dreams come true.

So let’s start doing better! Let’s be Happy!
