“The task of the hero is to bring new life to a dying culture.” – From “The Hero Within” by Carol S. Pearson
When you hear the word “hero,” what do you think about? Knights in shining armor? Slaying dragons? Rescuing fair maidens?
The above quote gives us an alternate definition of a hero, and I’m interested to hear what you all think about it. This quote is from a book I read a couple years ago called “The Hero Within: Six Archetypes We Live By.” It got me thinking about how we can all be heroic in our own lives, even in seemingly mundane daily activities.
So, without further hesitation:
- What does it mean to “bring new life to a dying culture”?
- How can an individual be heroic in his/her own life?
