Are you the hero of your own life? How to tell if you’re on a Hero’s Journey.
What does it mean to be the hero of your life?
The definition of a hero is:
A person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
But that’s only the END of a hero’s journey.
You might only be there for maybe a minute or two.
BEING a hero also includes everything in between the beginning of the journey and your triumphant end, like:
The entire, uncomfortable process is the beautiful becoming of a NEW version of you, despite and because of the challenges.
It’s ok if it feels hard sometimes.
It’s ok if you fail often.
It’s ok if you don’t feel like a hero for the vast MAJORITY of the journey.
It’s ok if you have wounds and scraped up knees.
That doesn’t take away your heroism.
It confirms it.
