The Hero’s Journey is Everyone’s Journey

by Maritza Parra

Have you ever watched a movie and wished you were the hero of the movie? Lost yourself completely that you thought you were in the movie – until the end credits brought you back to reality? When you watch a movie about a hero, you feel excitement, fear, suspense – you feel inspired and excited and more.

That’s the hero part of you, waiting for you to answer the call to become a hero in your own business and life.

You don’t have to be a swash-buckling pirate saving a damsel to be a hero. You don’t have to be Diana Nyad, swimming from Cuba to Florida, to be a hero. Being a hero can mean stepping up in your life to live more fully, taking more risks and going after more opportunities, or awakening to develop your unique gifts and creativity.

The Hero’s Journey is everyone’s journey, if you choose to grow and make positive changes. It can mean “showing up” more fully present in your relationships. Or taking your talents and gifts more seriously and finally taking the time and space to follow a dream.

And will there be challenges?

Absolutely. The path to becoming a hero in your own life is not challenge-free. There will be doubts, naysayers, lots of “helpful” advice, pebbles,in the path, unexpected allies and even dragons to deal with.

And that’s when you know you’re on the right path.

Very true! It took me a long time of living through the excitement of other peoples accomplishments to become my own hero.
Sometimes I literally amaze myself. It's a funny feeling and one I hope more people can experience as they age.

It's exciting once you realize you can become your own hero. So much better than trying to find them outside yourself. Thanks for your comments, Leah!
