The person that inspires me most turns out to be a fictional character, Barney Stinson from the famous series How I Met Your Mother. He exudes a uniquely vibrant and joyous energy in every single episode. Inspired by him, I have learnt many positive and useful traits. First of all, he is a positive person, even in the face of adversity. His well-known favorite quote:” When I get sad, I stop being sad and be awesome instead” depicts his notion clearly. It always reminds me of being sanguine no matter what happen and what I will come across. I believe by being positive as he is, I would have more self-control and therefore be able to achieve amazing feats in life. Secondly, Barney is a steadfast character as well. His never-give-up attitude proves to be one of most valuable lessons in life. Whenever he comes across a challenge, he is determined to see it done.
That is also the reason why he is able to win the hearts of the large audience. His resolute has influenced me in making many important decisions in real life: when problems arise, no matter how daunting it seems, I must continue on and solve it at all cost. Step by step, I find myself more determined, more persistent in whichever path I tread upon. Last but not least, I am also impressed by his lightheartedness – to “live every moment to the fullest”. Yet he sometimes behaves in idiosyncratic nature as being unworried about many encumbrances; many desire to have such personality: being untroubled by pressing concerns and stressful life like him. Every moment, every second is to be treasured, because you never know what may happen to you tomorrow. Therefore I too believe: life is to be enjoyed, not to be detested.
