“I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people.” Maya Angelou
Would you ever consider yourself being a hero? Have you ever thought about the fact that maybe you have become one? You don’t need to run around with a horse and a sword behind your belt. Modern hero is unique. He or she can make a difference in this world without even realizing it.
I believe that we all are heroes in the sense of way. I don’t know if it is just me, but lately, I have been feeling that more and more people are standing up for what they believe in. People want to speak up and express themselves, people starting to understand that life is not just about them, and this is exactly what this world needs. If we want to change, we need to change.
Since I have met a quiet few heroes along the way, I have for you 7 best personal powers which I observed and liked.
1. They sacrifice for a bigger cause
Only people with an open mindset can understand this. Real heroes know that those little things of pleasure don’t matter in the long run. They accept the fact that they need to suck it up now to build something bigger than themselves and enjoy future as many others can’t have.
Don’t panic because you can’t have this super sexy sports car or this new stunning designer purse. Stop complaining that you have to get up early in the morning to work your ass off. If not now, then when? Start seeing a bigger picture. Look ahead 5 years or 10 years. Where do you see yourself? How many lives can you change by changing yourself?
2. They don’t care what others think
Modern heroes don’t give a damn what their surroundings think of them. They know that closest and truest friends will understand, and rest can keep talking. They know their purpose and understand that not everyone will always agree with them. And you know what? That’s ok.
Quit listening others criticism and judgment. People are so good at judging other’s lives but not so good at fixing their own. You can only experience freedom the moment others negative opinion will no longer matter to you.
3. They use kindness for building relationships
Modern heroes are smart. They know that the best and most rewarding relationships come from love and understanding. They understand that by respecting others, they gain respect for themselves.
Look, I believe that there are times when you need to be tough and show others that you are a lion, not a sheep. But most of the time in your life, you will go much further and achieve more success through a kind word and loyalty. Always be a bigger person with a loving heart. That’s where the hero’s strength comes from.
4. Modern heroes think for themselves
As long as you aren’t a 5-year-old kid, I don’t think that you need others to tell you how to live your life. True heroes use their brain to think and make decisions. They know their values and things that matter to them.
Too many people are living a life of misery just because they are trying to “Keep up with the Joneses” or impressed society they live in. Too many of us do what others tell us to do just to satisfy their needs, but not our own. Life isn’t complicated. The only thing you need to do is to follow your heart. I know, cheesy line. But this is the only recipe for success.
5. Modern heroes are honest to themselves
If the modern hero screws up, he or she takes full responsibility for their mistakes. They understand that we all have faults which are here to teach us something and stay humble. Modern heroes don’t hide or blame others, they take the blame and deal with it.
One of the great ways how to gain more respect from others is showing them that you are a grown up, fair grown up. Don’t be difficult and when you mess up, let others know that you are sorry. This is one of the hardest things to do and to be honest with you; it challenges me every day.
6. They know that helping others is a part of their lifestyle
For modern heroes, helping others isn’t a one-time responsibility. They understand that making someone else’s life better is the way of life. There are so many individuals worse off than you and I; we can consider ourselves the luckiest people in the world.
Even the smallest act of kindness can make a tremendous difference in a person’s life. Never underestimate your personal power of impacting other’s day or even a life.
7. They understand that self-love is an inner job
The modern hero knows that if he wants to deliver the best of himself, he needs to master self-love first. It is one of the most important things we all need to realize. Stop looking for fulfillment or love outside of yourself. Stop giving others the power to control how you feel or who you are. Love and respect yourself every second of your life. Never let others bring you down and tell you who you are not.
Self-love is not about egotism. It is about building a healthy self-esteem towards who you are which will give you enormous mental strength. Modern heroes don’t let small minded people lower their potential and self-esteem. Be like a modern hero.
