Everyone is a Hero in their own Way

When you go out in the morning, do you see yourself as the hero or villian in your story?  I’m willing to bet almost everyone sees themselves as the Batman in their story (or Superman, or Wonder Woman…).  And the people that are the challenges in your life, they are the bad guys – the Jokers, Lex Luthors, and…whomever Wonder Woman fights.

What we need is new thinking.  We need a realization that EVERYONE is the hero in their story.  To Apollo, Rocky was some upstart young guy who didn’t pay his dues who was getting into the big leagues and trying to steal his thunder and his paycheck.  This guy needed taken down a peg, and it was up to the hero – Apollo Creed – to do it. 

When you come up against your nemisis (like the lady at the coffee shop that always ruins your order, or the co worker who is passive agressive and always talks behind your back, or the boss who yells a lot for no reason) or just someone who is making your life difficult (like that kid who just won’t stop talking about his summer vacation, or the one who always whines when he loses at checkers) try to remember that they aren’t the villain.  They’re the hero of their story, and it’s up to you to meet them with respect – like Batman and Superman do.  They may not agree all the time.  They may believe THEY are the right hero for the job.  But they aknowldege they are both heroes, just trying to do good in this crazy little world.  And they respect each other.

Respect each other today, and believe like I believe – people are just trying to do the right thing (even if they don’t always do it the right way!).
