You don’t have to scale mountains or fight dragons to be heroic.
You can be the hero in your own life. Your unique brand of heroism lies in living your life with your own sense of integrity in the way you want to live it. To be a successful may mean accomplishing huge goals or making small adjustments, yet the courage and commitment you need to do either is of the same quality. Your promise to yourself is ultimately accountable only to you, even though you may also choose to share your goals with others to garner support. All true heroes know that they have the highest standards for themselves.
If you ask a psychic a question about your future, most will tell that your destiny is not set in stone. This is because most all psychics believe that all people have a free will and their futures are still largely determined by the decisions they make. Becoming a hero in the face of adversity is one way you can take control your own destiny.
Part of being a hero is that you will probably be tested along the way and find that sometimes you may falter. This quality of courageously reaching for your goals over and over again, despite the fact that occasionally you may fail, marks you as the hero in your own life.
Remember, even the powers of Superman can be sometimes be thwarted by kryptonite. What makes him a hero is not the fact that he is perfect, but rather that he is willing to face adversity head-on again and again even if he doesn’t always succeed. Thinking like a hero in this way can sustain you in the toughest of times.
Being a Hero on a Bad Day
Making constructive steps towards your goals is easiest when life around you proceeds in a fairly predictable manner. You know in advance which obstacles you are going to potentially face and you’ve prepared well.
And then you have “one of those days” where every crisis you could have possibly imagined rains down on you all at once – your car breaks down, an unexpected bill you can’t afford to pay arrives in the mail, and your boss gives you unrealistic deadline to complete a difficult project.
On top of that your energy levels are low because you’ve been working hard and you’re coming down with a nasty cold that makes you feel weak, fed up, and sorry for yourself.
Everyone has these days – sometimes they turn into weeks or even longer – and when you’re in the middle of a challenging goal, sustaining your efforts is tough. Something has to give. Trouble is, if your goal gets sidelined, you find it really easy to beat yourself up and that can create an even bigger setback as you can lose your confidence in yourself.
It’s at times like these that you have to become your own hero by realizing that you have to persevere through life’s many challenges in order to succeed in the long run. If you have to temporarily put aside your big goal in order to get through a bad run of luck or unusual series of events, then so be it.
Accept that setbacks are a normal part of life. Don’t let them get you down. Deal with them the best you can so that you can get back on track and remain focused on your primary goals and objectives. Think about ways to make progress, even in very small ways, such as looking for any unexpected opportunity that may arise from a bad situation. When faced with adversity, a true hero always rises to the occasion.
