“A hero is an ordinary person who makes themselves extraordinary” – Gerard Way
“A hero is an ordinary person who has the perseverance to overcome difficult obstacles” – Christopher Reeve
Yes, that’s right – there are two quotes this week, as I just couldn’t choose which hero quote I loved best. You know Christopher Reeve, right? You know, from the Superman series way back in the 90s? Well, it turns out he wrote a book after his tragic horseback riding accident that left him a paraplegic and likely shortened his life span. It’s only my reading list now!
What Is A Hero?
Lately, I have two types of heroes:
How To Find Your Role Models (Or Heroes)
3 Ways To Find Your Inner Hero
Some people say that we need to find our “inner hero”. I guess that’s like an inner voice, an internal driving force that can take us where we want to go and help us reach our goals.
Here are the top 3 that work for me:
1. Ignite Your Passion
It almost seems like a cliche that to have a great career, you need to follow your dreams and follow your passion. However, it’s quite simply – true! How can we expect to feel thrilled to go to work every day if we’re not following our passions?
2. Make a Solid Process – & Follow It!
Speaking of following, having a plan to follow definitely helps get our your “inner hero” – the one who knows how you can change your life, change the world, and make a difference in whatever field or capacity you want to. Personally, I find taking steps one at a time is the best way to take on the challenge of being who you really want to be.
3. Do Away With Fear
Getting over our own mindsets can sometimes be the most difficult obstacle! You know, those times when self-doubt creeps in and all you can feel is overwhelmed? Well, I love hearing how entrepreneurs get over that one; they are so many strategies!
In fact, one of the speakers (Melissa Pharr) will be talking about exactly that at the Free Online Teachable Summit this week! I’m definitely planning to catch that session. If you want to see which other ones I’m looking forward to, you can check out my FB Live Video here. or click the image below
