Do you have a favorite hero or heroine?
Where do you find heroes and heroines? “Those who say that we’re in a time when there are no heroes – – they don’t know where to look.” ~Ronald Reagan
My heroes are ordinary people who made a difference in my life, mainly my Grandpa, Rusty Landon, and my parents Robb and Rose Landon. Their lives are examples to me that I hope to emulate. Jeff, my husband, is another hero of mine. He has sacrificed for our family for thirty years and managed to survive all my crazy ideas in stride.
What do you admire about your favorite hero/heroine?
Why we love heroes and heroines?
It’s no coincidence that I think of my family as heroes. All of us owe what ever success we’ve attained to the people who nurtured us when we were developing and vulnerable. They are the ones who usually are our biggest cheerleaders.
Heroes and heroines help define our ideals. Heroes and Heroines possess the amazing qualities we’d like to develop. They inspire us to action. These spirited humans always command a degree of courage, audacity, tenacity and grit.
Heroes and heroines are beacons of light in a dark world. They prove that no matter how much evidence of mayhem, there will always be good people who do the right thing, even when it’s not practical or popular.
Do you see yourself as a hero?
Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey, a common template found in every classic story structure, is an allegory of life. The hero’s journey is hardwired into our subconscious. Life is a hero’s journey. The hero is you.
It is only natural to want to duck and cover when the world is falling apart. I want to offer that you are still in control of your thoughts. You are still control of your feelings. You can choose to create higher quality thoughts that will help you add value to your life.
The chaos you are experiencing today will either magnify your underlying limiting beliefs or prompt you to overcome them. It takes courage to address your feelings and examine your thoughts. Learn to break the spiral of destructive thoughts, and YOU will be your own hero!
Once you are on the other flip side of your emotional set point, you can release your creative juices and look for solutions for your family, community and world. You will think, “let’s go” and feel fierce instead of fear.
What is a hero/heroine to do?
This can not be overstated, your value does not come from the stock market. Your value is created in your brain. If you choose to accept the invitation to step up, you will need to do thought work around this truth.
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” Joseph Campbell
This journey is worth it!
According to Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey, as applied to real life, there are definable steps to every hero or heroine’s journey.
Ordinary life – starting place for every hero’s journey
Call to adventure – inciting incident
Aided by someone -mentor, leader, life coach 😉
Invitation – tests, allies, enemies, confronting difficulties, physical hurdles
Reward – saved life, stronger, insight into life, awards, recognition
Return – back home for a higher cause, reverse call to action
Ordinary life – forever changed
I’ve seen this play out in my own journey becoming a certified life coach.
Ordinary Life – Closing of Flown The Coop
Call to adventure – A nudge from inside to help people create their lives
Aided by someone – Brooke Castillo at The Life Coach School
Invitation – Financial commitment, overcome limiting beliefs, course work, practicums, coaching/ self coaching, stepping out of my comfort zone
Reward – After six months I finally received a certification
Return – Now I’m back to my community with a passion to serve!
Ordinary Life – I’m my own hero and offer hope to others with coaching and self coaching!
