Your heroes will inspire you. You will emulate them. Overtime, your heroes will begin to define you.
Growing up, you are introduced to potential heroes by your parents, in school, while watching TV, by your friends, etc. It is your choice to decide which ones you will revere and hold dear. Society and your surroundings have a strong role as well…but in the end, it is your choice.
Choosing the right heroes can lead to you pursuing ambitious projects and careers. If more people had the right heroes…society would be pushed forward faster.
Having the right heroes which leads to inspiration can be the beginning to a lot of wonderful outcomes. Inspiration is powerful. I am reminded of the quotes:
If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Antoine de Saint Exupéry
In the culture of America, in a free culture, you get what you celebrate.
