You are the HERO of your own story

Joseph Campbell

Now when we try to imagine how a ‘Hero’ would be like, it would normally be someone who is a good-looking, strong, extremely smart, skillful and talented, someone who doesn’t make mistakes and it is like someone who is almost perfect in every single way.

But we have forgotten, what makes them a hero of their own story is not how great and powerful they are, but how they overcome the problems in their story. Just like in every hero movies that we watched, though it seems like they are almost perfect in every single way, the story always show in the climax of how the hero overcome the problem, the villain and the obstacles in the story.

A few examples could be:- Spiderman facing off the Green Goblin, Superman facing off with Lex Lurther, Batman facing off against the Joker, The Avengers against Thanos, etc…

Marvel just told us how it decided which heroes to kill in ...

Therefore, as you can see, all of the hero faces problems as well, but what make them a hero is not how great they are but how they overcame those challenges. In fact, that’s what make this hero movies so interesting. I can’t imagine a hero movie without any problem, everything is just smooth sailing. It would just make the show not interesting to watch.

Here’s the point, in our life as well, what makes us a hero in our story is not how brilliant we are, how talented we are, how strong we are but how we will overcome the challenges in life. The thing is this, there will always be a villain, there will always be obstacles and problem that we can’t bear to face but a hero will not give up, a hero will not give in, a hero will always try to defeat the villain, to solve the problem and to make the world a better place.

Therefore, you too can be the hero of your own story. Each time when we are in the midst of our villains and our problems, know that we are the hero and we won’t back down till we find a way to defeat the villains and to overcome the problems. Once all these things are defeated, know that you have just written a chapter of your hero’s story. Just remember, be the hero of your own story.
