Be Your Own Hero

A hero is without shape and beyond time; the human need for heroes transcends all cultures.

What makes a hero unforgettable is not their strength but rather their will. We admire their ability to transcend defeat and persevere. When we watch them we temporarily become them. We live vicariously through them. This is the lure of sports — an average person can experience the glory of the players.

What makes a hero so undefeatable ? What makes him or her stand up after being knocked down a hundred times ? The answer is simple. A hero lies within us all, at any given moment we can all become are own personal hero. Not just any hero, but one that involves a deeply personal path that the individual walks alone.
