💪 8-Week Body Transformation Challenge! 🥗

Be the Hero of your own story.

The theme of our 2020 8-Week Challenge is “Be Your Own Hero” and on this topic, in my last post, I focussed on the idea of Self-reliance.

Today I want to talk about how you can be the Hero of your own story! 

Being a hero does not come from being perfect (or born with some kind of “superpower”).

Being a hero comes from the decisions you make and the actions you take, despite the odds.

Think about it: Who do you really find inspiring?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t really find the guy or girl on the cover of a fitness magazine inspiring. Respect and admiration to them.

But the people who really inspire me are those who struggle. The ones who show up every single day against all odds and never give up.

It may seem simple, but we’ve seen the power over and over again where one person decides to share their journey in the Sleekgeek Facebook Group and it goes on to inspire hundreds, if not thousands of others.

I love what Lewis Howes creator of the School of Greatness says about the hero’s journey.

“Did you know that you are the hero of your own story?

Living life from behind your eyes, you are the protagonist, and you are the author.

You see, on every hero or heroine’s journey, the hero gets lost. The hero nearly dies. The hero wants to give up.

It’s an essential part of the journey, in fact.

If you are lucky, you will find your way back quickly, or after a little time.

Some people get lost for so long they forget what it was like to be themselves.

Sometimes the pain in life can seem too much to bear, and there are those among us who suffer harder, maybe even feel deeper.

Pain is inevitable, but suffering–the story we tell ourselves about the pain–is optional.

We are all heroes and heroines –either answering the call of our highest selves or not. “

So what is it gonna be guys?

Your Action

Write a mantra that you can recite daily reminding yourself that you are the hero of your own story.

For example I wrote this for myself.

“I give myself permission to do something extraordinary on earth”

Write down a simple sentence that speaks to you personally. The sentence needs to be a statement – something that can’t be questioned.

For example:

I am powerful beyond measure.

I choose to be happy.

Every day I become more and more successful.

I am loving and I am loved.

I will succeed at all things I choose to do.

I love my life.

I am strong, healthy and powerful.

If you are ready to BE YOUR OWN HERO why not join our latest 8-Week Challenge and use the tools we offer you to build your self-reliance and become self-sufficient.

Good luck!
