How do you define a hero?
For me, it’s someone who really displays courage in helping another person. What’s your definition?
Who are your heroes and why do you think of them that way?
First, I can say who my heroes are not. They are not sports stars or movie stars. They are not elite CEOs or famous entertainers or famous authors. They are not necessarily my favorite teachers or coaches. All those folks are performing a role and they are performing that role extremely well. But to me that’s not “hero status.”
My heroes are people who faced very, very difficult challenges and did so courageously while still focusing on trying to help other people. Some of my heroes are friends and family members. Some are famous historical leaders who took on very difficult challenges. Some are people I read about who genuinely tried to help other people.
Think about your heroes. You will learn a lot about yourself.
