Like the stereotypical “first impression”, when an idea pops on in your mind, and you act on it, it will drive you through to success if you take time to identify why the idea came up in the first place. If you identify it as passion, then you have a chance to not only launch your idea to make it real, but you also have an opportunity to be successful with it.
Passion, as American Oxford Dictionary defines it, “strong and barely controllable emotion”, hit me like a sack of potatoes while reading the morning newspaper. A favorite columnist of mine wrote about the Sand Creek Massacre that occurred in the Colorado territory on November 29, 1864. I was stunned about what took place that grim day. It triggered an idea about making a film about the story.
