5 Suggestions to Remember How to Be a Hero

We had a strep attack last night and today so Friday's post is very late. But, I didn't want to leave you with nothing so here's this cool article on how to be a Hero.

In it, Fred Kofman writes, "Heroes are not just mythical characters. They are examples of you at your best," and then he lists five suggestions to remember how to be our best:

  1. No problem -- Take the challenge
  2. Drop “Who's responsible?” – Be response-able
  3. Forget what you don´t want – Focus on what you want.
  4. Take one eye off the ball – Go for the gold.
  5. Failure is not an option – Succeed beyond success.
He concludes by saying success may give you pleasure, but integrity leads to happiness and leaves this quote by Viktor Frankl author of "Man's Search for Meaning":

"Don't aim at success--the more you aim at it and make it (your final) target, the more you are going to miss it. For true success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself. Listen to what your conscience commands you to do and carry it out to the best of your knowledge."

Have a great strep-free weekend, everyone.
