Who is your personal hero? Did you name a famous actor or a beautiful female celebrity? Or a high profile political figure maybe? An athlete?
For a change, have you ever considered yourself a hero? To be your own personal hero?
Any one of us could be a hero. Being surrounded and at the same time, influenced by strong, courageous and intrepid individuals, we are urged to exude greatness as well. We look at them and imagine us being in their shoes. We mold our lives according to how they are with theirs. And at the end of the day, we try to imitate their greatness by applying the same in our lives.
However, are you not aware of the fact that you are your own hero? Bragging aside, you are the best person to help you be the very person you want to be. You have the capacity to teach yourself the greatness that others have and more so enable others to see you as a model.
We are models of our own selves. No one is as adept and proficient to impart us with knowledge regarding our psyche and inner self. More so, no one knows about our innate self more than us thus we are our best teacher.
The moment we forego believing in our self makes us prone to having and living an unexamined life. An unexamined life here connotes a life that is wasted or a life that has no meaning because of certain circumstances that leads one to stop believing in his own self. If this should happen to you then there must be something wrong with the way you live your life now.
With the help of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), one is able to understand the capacity of the self. He sees the self beyond the usual and alleviate himself towards achieving greatness. Greatness here exemplifies satisfaction on the fulfillment of life goals, aspirations and objectives that permits us to live life to the fullest.
The way NLP works is that it paves the way for us to widen our horizon thus realizing on our capacities and capabilities. We may be limited but because of such, we work towards further developing ourselves to realize our essence and reason for existence.
Thus, the next time you are asked, do not hesitate to name yourself as your own hero because, in the first place, you are a hero. You are your own hero.
