I love inspiration. In fact, during some professional development courses a number of years ago with a coach, together we determined that one of more foundational core values is inspiration. For those that don’t know, a core value underpins the way in which you behave, act, and how you live your life.
I realize that inspiration is really important to me and it is just the way I am wired that. I love being inspired and when I can, I love to inspire. Inspiration as a whole, brings me great joy, it broadens my mind and emotions, it renews my faith in the world and in people and frankly, being inspired makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s one way that kind of makes me feel alive.
Well knowing that, it explains why I experienced a range of emotions when I watched the theme of overcoming obstacles in Adweeks Top 5 Commercials.
I found myself cheering. I found myself laughing. I found myself being informed and educated and during the last one, I found myself welling up with tears. A number of tears.
Unless you’re the Tin Man, I don’t know anyone who isn’t inspired by folks overcoming obstacles.
I will happily admit that I am.
