You Must Be the Hero of Your Story…
“There comes a time when you gotta keep moving.”
-Bugzy Malone, Artist
I was listening to a song from one of my new
favorite artists today (Bugzy Malone) and he said that phrase and
it really got me thinking about the struggles and sense
of overwhelm that many people are facing right now in
their lives. He also went on to say,
You Can’t Look at a Problem, You Gotta Look Thru the
Agree 100%. So what does the really mean
and how do you start to look past your problems in order to
move forward in your life…but also move forward in a BIG
Well, I think it means you need to make
a decision to Become the Hero of Your Story. You’ve
probably heard this phrase before but it’s time you
really gave it some serious consideration.
What does it mean to Be the Hero of Your Story?
What would the hero of your story look like? How would
the hero of your story of life act, show up and manage the problems
you are facing? The bottom line is, whether you believe it or
not, you are the author and the main character in your life’s
story. And…you have the ability to write the next chapter.
Your thoughts, intentions, actions, and strategy will
determine the results you will see over the coming months.
The Hero of your Story needs to be the one to Show up,
Step up and Conquer the fears, challenges and obstacles that life
has presented to you. But, here is the
You cannot pretend to be the Hero. You must
actually Decide and Act like the Hero.
The Key is to remember that even Heros have setbacks.
Even Heros can have a comeback. In order to become the
Hero that you were meant to be, you need to adopt values,
disciplines and actions that Your Hero would adopt. Let
me suggest just a few…
Keep Your Eye on the Mission
This is your vision. If you are looking at
the problem you will not be able to find the solution. If
your head is down, you can’t see where you are going. Keep your
head up, and stay clear on the goals, dreams and desires that you
have for your Future. But, this means you need to have a
clear vision, so Write it down. Write down what you want your
life to be like and get clear on what you will do to make that
Most importantly, have a vision so big that
is overshadows the problems you are facing. The key to
success is not asking for less or smaller problems. The key
is asking for enough strength and vision that is bigger than
your problems. Then you will develop the skills and talents
and experience to handle even greater challenges.
Stop Giving Energy and Focus to the
A True Hero, Your Hero, doesn’t stay focused on the
past let failures. The past does not define you.
It should only Empower you because you are NOT that
person any more. You are the new person that has learned from
the past. You are the more experienced, the more dedicated,
the more driven person that exists in the present. So, like Rocky
said, “its not how many times you get knocked down that
counts. It’s how many times you get knocked down and get back
up that defines you”.
Be the person (and the hero) that will never
quit. The person that doesn’t ever stay down.
Learn How to Create
Go back and listen to the podcast last week on
momentum, but I want to emphasize here that, if you learn to
create momentum, you will be UNSTOPPABLE. The Hero of your story is
absolutely Unstoppable. You can create momentum for yourself
by simply aligning with yoru Unique Talents, Setting Huge
goals, Removing Distractions, Finding your sources of Energy,
and Leveraging the Power of the Mastermind.
With momentum on your side, you can overcome even
the biggest challenges, so find ways to create energy and
momentum in your life and break through to new heights.
Its by operating outside your comfort zone and pushing
into the unknown that you will find your greatest joys and
Know the Journey will be Long
Listen, you just like any other hero are not perfect.
You will fail at times. You will do and say the
wrong things at times. You won’t have all the answers
and things won’t always go according to plan. But, trust
yourself. Trust your ability to learn and adapt rather
than trusting in the outcome. Trust and have faith in the
process rather than the end goal. Be a person of decision,
commitment and conviction and then trust that you will be
taken in the right direction.
You see when we let go of the outcome and learn to
embrace the journey, we are much better able to handle what the
story of life throws in our path. If you are not open to
detours and new paths, then you will be focused on the wrong things
when the objective is just to create, live and enjoy your
life. The journey you begin is based on your current
perception of what you want and how you will write the story.
But, as you grow, your journey can take on many new and
exciting paths to help you become the true Hero and fulfill your
Know that Being Stuck is
Just like a path in the forest or a map you are
following for directions, sometimes you will make a wrong turn
and get stuck. Sometimes the path you take will lead you in
the wrong direction. When that happens, just know
that making a course correction is ok and being stuck is only
temporary. Getting upset or distracted with being stuck
or lost only drains you of the energy you could be using to
accomplish your task. Course correct and keep moving
Again, Bugzy Malone, “Keep moving, Losing, Keep
Even Heros have setback. It’s the drive and
determination of a Hero that overcomes that battle. Make a
decision and a commitment today to Be the Hero. Be the one
you are hoping to show up and rescue you. Be the one who will
create and manifest your future. Only you can make it happen
and only you have the power to Be the Hero of Your
