Who is YOUR Hero?

“Behaviour that is admired is the path to power among people everywhere”


“I am Ripper… Tearer… Slasher… Gouger. I am the teeth in the darkness, the talons in the night. Mine is strength… and lust… and power! I am Beowulf!”


Us Humans are strange and complex creatures yet we are also incredibly simple creatures.

We love, feel, invent, create, and philosophise, yet we all seem to be programmed to seek out and follow a hero – some mythical figure who embodies everything that we perceive as good, powerful and inimical to our fears and adversaries, yet that powerful saviour and protector is darkness its self. An interwoven paradox of right and wrong, light and dark. The strange thing about a hero is that it is irrelevant if you love or hate the character, that hero has your attention!

This aspiration to emulate greatness has been both the rise and downfall of many. We seem to engage in a self regulating, society induced balancing game as we ride the roller-coaster of life. We strive to better ourselves in relation to our en-cultured society, and in turn our en-culturation and social structure destroys its old and adapts to our achievements. A phoenix constantly rising.

Who is your Hero, your role model?

Who do look up to and admire?

What in them do you want to emulate and why?

What’s in it for you?

Imagine for a moment that you – yes YOU, the person looking back at you while you clean your teeth in the morning, were that person, that hero that you so admire!

How would that feel?

What emotion do you feel in the moment of allowing yourself to be you own hero?

That insecurity, doubt, pride or joy is either holding you back or is the path for you to follow to your own greatness.

Observe, change, adapt and go out into the world as your own hero!

It is that easy!
