You are the hero of your life.
Embrace your greatness.
I dare you.
Work on it every day.
When we are proudly shining the people around us recognize that the powerful light within us is the reflection of the light within them – they will be empowered by you.
"A strong belief in our worthiness doesn't just happen it must be cultivated." Brene Brown
YOU ARE A HERO!
What is a hero? A sandwich made of a long roll typically filled with meat, cheese, and vegetables such as lettuce, tomato, and onions.
I kid - it's you! Seriously - you are here to live the life of a hero. Don't believe me?
Okay - a hero;
1. Goes on a journey - you are on a journey aren't you?
2. Is faced with challenges, and learns and grows from them.*
3. Meets and make friends along the way.
4. Is transformed by your life's experiences and the lessons you learn are unique and valuable as well as universal.
*Whether you want to or not!
A HERO'S LIFE
"The god you worship is the one you’re capable of becoming." Joseph Campbell
You don't have to perform some epic deed, act of bravery, suffer a soul testing experience or be better looking, smarter, wealthier, stronger, being any less of a mess, or knowing something more than you think you know.
YOU ARE STRONG
Allison Massari is one of my personal heroes and she does a great job of explaining why you are one too! If you haven't heard of her, then click back and thank me later after you watch her Ted Talk - Allison Massari's AMAZING TedTalk
She has the ability to translate how to use adversity to grow in a way that is mind blowing.
"The future of happiness is born in our courage to see all that is good and beautiful and all that is unfair and painful and still choosing to love anyway." Allison Massari
"When we stop judging our suffering or our faults our minds become quieter, we create space for happiness." Allison Massari
THE POWER OF BEING YOU!
Brene Brown got put on the map because of a Ted Talk she gave that has been watched by over 26 million people. 26 MILLION PEOPLE! What does she talk about? How to make a million dollars without getting out of bed? How to find your soulmate? Eat anything you want and never gain weight? No! She talks about vulnerability! Why it is important to be yourself. It's a lesson that I know is valuable, but it does my heart good to know it strikes a cord with so many.
Her book The Gifts of Imperfection is pretty great. In it she talks about "wholehearted living" which she defines as containing courage, compassion, deliberate boundaries, and connection. It's incredibly inspiring. Read it. And watch her Ted Talk - Brene Brown
YOU CAN BE HAPPIER
I can't even begin to explain to you how much my life was influenced by learning that you have the power be happier by actually putting effort into it. There are studies that show 50% of how you feel about happiness is genetic (not a good sign for me!) - but research by Sonja Lyubomirsky starts with three things as the basis for happiness - one’s set point, one’s life circumstances, and the intentional activities in which one engages. She contends that only 10% is based on circumstance - therefore you've got that 40% to work with.
YOUR BRAIN WANTS YOU TO BE HAPPY
"I believe that the more time we spend choosing to run the deep inner peace circuitry of our right hemispheres, the more peace we will project into the world and the more peaceful our planet will be." Jill Bolte Taylor
