July/August RDW Newsletter - It Takes Courage
to be a Hero
Last month we opened the door to a discussion on “Who is your hero?” with a request to share some thoughts in the coming months. Thank you to everyone who has already submitted their ideas. Below are a few responses to consider:
As the new Harry Potter book débuted this summer, I was struck by some interviews with youthful readers discussing what it is that makes Harry Potter so special. They said that Harry Potter is not your typical swoop in and save the day action hero. Harry makes his mistakes and has his challenges, especially when it comes to understanding himself and his life. In the end, he always does the right thing, even when no one is looking. That is what makes him a hero.
As Jack Nicholas played the British Open for the last time this month, he was called a hero. It was said that he just “grinds” everything, whether it be a two-foot putt or a long drive. He set many standards and won many tournaments with gentlemanly class and dignity. Folks want to be like him. Following the rules of golf is an example of doing the right thing when no one is looking.
Not sure where to start? Need a little push on your journey to being a hero? Here is a hint: dig deep to find your true courage to do the right thing. When you do the right thing, even for small things, each and every day, you will be well on your way to being the action hero that we all will admire. Congratulations, you are courageously on the road to deriving results from within.
If you like the tip, let us know but more important, share it with a friend or colleague. As always, YOUR SUCCESS IS MY GREATEST PLEASURE.
