There is so much negativity and I’m part of it. When I saw this ad, I had some really critical, snarky thoughts about it, as well as about other ridiculous ads that I feel are disingenuous and insulting. I started to write a blasting commentary about the responsibility of businesses to uphold the Colorado brand of collaboration and integrity.
After writing my first draft of this post, I listened to the Brian Buffini podcast episode “You Are a Diamond,” and it put me in a positive frame of mind. I started thinking of this post and decided I was being too negative and critical. With a lightened attitude I saw this ad as funny – the silliness of a ONCE in a LIFETIME EVENT has been HELD OVER! by the same company whose last ad was a “Private Sale” advertised in the Denver Post. The more I think about it, the more humorous it all is. So?
So that brings me to the NEW point of this post: listening to something positive turned me from having a critical and negative outlook, to feeling upbeat and acting positively. This silly ad reminded me of what so many have taught: my attitude shapes the lens of my entire perspective.
