Understand > What is Inspiration?
When you witness true human excellence, you transcend the ordinary become uplifted and inspired. Along with gratitude and awe, inspiration is considered one of the self-transcendent emotions.  It’s a form of positivity that pulls us out of our shell of self-absorption.   


For example, the time your friend put down his phone to patiently help a disoriented older man find his way, or watching tennis star Roger Federer play a flawlessly fluid game in the U.S. Open, or watching a performance whose acting seems to capture the core of the human soul, or just watching a close friend doing what she does best.  


Inspiration doesn’t simply feel good, it rivets your attention, warms your heart, and draws you in ultimately making you want to express what’s good and do good yourself.  Inspiration creates the urge to do your best so that you can reach your own higher ground.  


Like gratitude, inspiration has an evil twin.  Whether you call it resentment or envy, it arises when we see human excellence and respond with negativity.  Sometime we mock or put the person down, or think less of ourselves for not doing equally well.  When we compare ourselves with someone who does better than we do, we may get discouraged instead of inspired.  

How you respond to human excellence - positivity or negativity - is a choice.  That choice opens your heart or closes it and puts you onto an upward spiral or a downward spiral.  Can you think of a time when you made the choice to be inspired?
