The Hero’s Journey

So . . .

You’re the hero and you’re going to start your journey.

What are you supposed to do first?

You start with belief in your mission. You will start on your own with just a dream of what can be and at times you may question yourself as well as your abilities. But you must persist forward as you have no choice other than to be pulled by your destiny to make a positive difference in the world. Once you go far enough you realize that you can’t go back and why would you want to?

You will run into challenges. They will seem insurmountable at first but after you get through the first one you realize it’s not so bad. These so called challenges become simple and you start gaining confidence. You believe your story that you’re the hero and you will conquer the world!

People you meet will help you along the way. They may have complementary skills to you or provide things that you lack (although you may not recognize that at this stage) or you may be helping them along on their own journey.

Overtime you will gain more confidence and maybe a little too much. Able to see your vision as real you believe that you are the cause for the change. Soon you will face a real challenge that will break you and your friends resolve. Humbled by the overwhelming power of chaos you will fail and be reduced to where you were at the start. But you’re not like the rest you tell yourself as your vision must become real. Unabashed by your circumstance you must go on dragged along by your better self; an other worldly force that may be a collective consciousness of us all.

Your road will be tough but will be cleared by your friends. That said, ultimately you have to walk it alone because no one else can or at least that is what you think. You may punch a hole through a wall but you will always need support to push you though. Will you walk through it?

Face the apex of your challenge and let yourself go. Commit to the death of your current perception of your world and leave changed as if you can’t understand the person that was. You will see that person in all others that you encounter from that time on and will be able to help them on their journey.

When you have gone to hell and back to conquer the seemingly unconquerable you may want to go home and live happily ever after. However, there is still much to do and you will feel the call back onto the road – a new journey.

You’re the hero of this story you don’t need to be saved . . .
