This past week or so, we have been diving into the idea of heroism.  So often, we think of it in terms of physical danger faced and life sacrificed.  I understand that and acknowledge it; thoroughly.  That being said, we can have heroes in our lives by other means… family members, friends, teachers, entrepreneurs and more; people who inspire us… people with whom we see their role as a hero in our lives.

First, I invite you to engage what we have posted thus far… and it is considerable.  You can access all the links through this one on Calling Out the Heroic.  You can read up on a Recipe for Heroism here too.  Take some time to munch on it all.

Second, once done… ask yourself for whom and how you can be a hero in these times we live at home, school, work, business or community.

Third, be it.

That is all.

Peace, passion and prosperity.
