Do you ever take time to consider the tools you have in your self-support system? As you read this post, I want you to think about the collection of beliefs that make up your worldview.

The H.E.R.O. Defined: E is for Elastic (includes Resilience Worksheet)

What do you do when you get punched? I’m not talking about a physical beating. I’m talking about the metaphorical pummeling you sometimes receive courtesy of life’s circumstances. Let’s take an American mythological hero and use his example metaphorically. Let’s take some lessons from the legend of Rocky Balboa (spoilers ahead if you’ve been living […]

The H.E.R.O. Defined: H is for Human (includes Boost Your Belief Worksheet)

You and the ancient Greek hero Hercules have a lot in common. Sure, maybe you’re not a demigod with superhuman strength.

It’s Important to Understand What a Hero is NOT

I’ve written about the need to expand the definition of the hero. But it’s not enough to describe what a hero is; we also need to know what a hero is not. A hero is not meant to be a sacrifice. The sacrifice part of heroism is incidental, a by-product of taking action to aid others. […]

Life Isn’t Fair…or Unfair. It Just Is.

Life isn’t fair. I don’t disagree with that sentiment. Actually, I don’t think life should be fair. Because without challenge, our personal development is often slowed or halted.

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.

Remember that Failure is Your Friend

Admit it, there have been times when your life could have been the subject of a bad country song: you lost your true love, your dog, and your truck. Everything went wrong. You tried your best, and you failed.  And I bet someone made fun of your failure. Maybe it was a friend trying to bust your […]
