Video: You can Rewrite your Reality and Break Old Habits like a Hero

This is my second video about the Live the Hero concept (see the first video here). It explores the everyday hero’s knowledge of the fact that we can rewrite our personal reality. This is done by letting yourself believe you can change your bad habits and become better in whatever area of your life is frustrating you. Belief is the first step on the journey!

Once you watch, please comment to let me know the following:

  • What could you relate to in the video?
  • What do you hope Live the Hero can do for your life?
  • Any other feedback, comments, suggestions, or requests

  1. Thanks for your video. I can and do identify with dragging old childhood patterns into my adult experiences. Within my own personal mythology, I AM now in the process of understanding them and moving past their influence on me. I realize the ‘moving past’ part is the key to fully experience my inner peace, my dreams and my purpose. I also agree with and can validate your closing, that daily practice of monitoring and changing my old thoughts, beliefs, habits and attitudes is bringing out the loving ‘I AM’ personification inside of me who is now beginning to truly and fully appreciate myself and the world. Thanks again, Hero…!


    1. Thanks for the comment, Ron! Be kind to yourself, don’t expect overnight success. Remember that it takes time to change old habits and install new ones! Consistency, repetition, dedication. It’s just another workout routine that you need to do…routinely!


  2. I feel that part of the difficulty in stepping away from prior ideas of the self is due to self identification. We identify ourselves, we label our identity, we categorize ourselves – and even if those labels are a detriment to our well being or perhaps limit us in some way- we cannot be the hero until we let go or shed these ties with our identity. We have to be willing to say goodbye to who we have been. And that’s tough.


    1. At an early age we’re taught that things are “easier” in life if we “find our place.” It’s human nature to seek comfort and certainty, even when we have the feeling that someone else is forcing their version of those ideas on us (parents, authority figures, etc.) They don’t do it maliciously (most of the time) I think, but in an attempt to help us make our way through the world. The problem we encounter as we grow older is that we start to chafe against the identity/life path we were told to follow by those we trusted most. We shouldn’t be upset at them, they did their best (again, most of the time). We need to be thankful for the realization that we were living under a certain set of “life instructions” that no longer make us happy/provide fulfillment. The great quest of every individual is the one where we step out of the familiar but malfunctioning life path we’re on, and seek something better beyond our comfort zone.
