A Hero within you

hero in you

Hero within you

Remember the time when you were just a kid and started walking on your own.

Who am I kidding???

Of course, you don’t remember it unless you have an IQ of 190 or you have a time machine that allows you to go back in time and meet the younger version of you. Put all that stuff aside, what point I was trying to get at is that even if you don’t remember the time, place or date of your action and still don’t realize it, the reality is that you did it. You got out of your comfort zone to do something that you never did or thought of doing and succeeded in it. Isn’t it amazing when you think of it this way that even as a child you had the courage of falling over and standing back on your feet? This is what makes you a hero. Because sometimes it takes a good fall to know where you can stand.

A hero by definition is the one with lots of courage. Then that means the people who kill others with or without reason are heroes since they show courage. Confusing right??? So what is it that makes you a hero??? What qualities does it require to qualify as a hero???
A hero is the one who works day and night to shape the world in a better way. However, being a hero isn’t always front page news or the stuff of films. Being a hero can mean working all the hours under the sun and earning enough to send your children to college so that they can have a better future than you had at their age. It can be as simple as making sure that the elderly people in your area are always warm and well fed, or dedicating you to improving community amenities and overcoming all the obstacles that get thrown up in your path.

A hero is the one who puts a smile on his face to make others feel safe. To me is the one who I can look up to. A hero is the one who makes me believe in myself and awakens the hero that resides within me. Remember there is a hero in every last one of us who is willing to put his/her life on the line to save the ones they love. A hero remains a hero as long as he makes the people behind him feel safe. So don’t be a hero just by definition, be a hero by example. Because definitions are vague, but examples are explicit. The true measure of a hero is not how he lives but how he dies. It’s not what they do in life, but what they did before dying that proves their worth. So what is a hero to you ??? Who are your heroes?? Ask yourself maybe you already have an answer.
