The Hero’s Journey is a pattern of narrative identified by the American scholar Joseph Campbell that appears in drama, storytelling, myth, religion and psychological development.
Luke Skywalker, Gautama Buddha, Moana… they’re all heroes who followed similar paths: something came along that forced them out of their comfort zones and sent them on transformational journeys from which they emerged enlightened and empowered.
When applied to our personal lives, the Hero’s Journey represents the maturation of our psyche.
We can choose to be heroes. It is a self-imposed journey—we choose to take on the challenge to define our place in life. It s our determined effort to mature and realize our fate: to succeed and reach full potential..
You don’t have to be a superhuman, fly, or shoot lasers from your eyes. That’s the whole point of the Hero’s Journey: it’s about a regular person who decides to reach higher.
Live Heroically starting now…
There are three “acts” in every Hero’s Journey.
First, something comes along that disrupts the status quo and forces the Hero-to-be out of their comfort zone. After that, the Hero has to enter a new world wherein they are forced to leave behind their old self and—through trials and tests—becomes better. hen, equipped with their new skills, the Hero transcends his or her past and begins a self-actualized life.
