Seek The Heroic In Yourself

"Modeling my qualities on heroic beings is a life-long practice.

Recognize the heroic in others and bring it in to your own daily experience."

p. 66, SIMPLY AN INSPIRED LIFE

It is too easy to look at someone I admire and say, "I could never be like them." And, really, why would I want to? I'm doing well being like myself. Bringing certain QUALITIES that admire in them in to my own experience is what I want. I may not have a daily newspaper column as Eleanor Roosevelt did...but, like her, I can choose my words carefully and communicate with the goal to motivate and provoke thought. Just like Eleanor. What heroic quality can you draw into your life today? And from whom?
