Why are hero’s so revered?

What is it about them that we hold in such high regard? 

Is it because they give you hope in a world that otherwise seems hopeless – or is it more than that?

A hero has qualities we consider admirable – this has always been typical across cultures and across time.

A natural inclination towards the hero that we all have within ourselves.

Qualities that mirror a deeper yearning

A yearning to be the hero in our own lives.

A yearning to confront your fears and showing courage when you’re called upon

Always doing what’s right, irrespective of the potential consequences

And to triumph

Not in some superficial attempt in pursuit of a goal

But in the ultimate triumph in overcoming your own demons; slaying your own dragon.

You see the hero’s journey always begins with the call to adventure, something deep inside that prompts you to do more and to be more.

And to embark on that journey, the only decision you need to make is whether or not to answer that call.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking Your Second Chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadness A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt.  Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason....
  • Communication Is Not a One Way Street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving It All Behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
