Hero vs. Victim of Life

3 min readMar 12, 2020

Today I sit on the terrace for the first time this year and enjoy the sun after my morning routine.

When I look around the garden, my heart opens up. There is so much positive energy around. Incredible!

All the flowers that are currently coming out of the fresh, wet grass. You can already hear the birds in the morning. You hear them singing and see them flying around, already looking for things for the nest.

You can watch the world awakening and you can also see it in the people when they start a wonderful day with a smile.

Which brings me to my next point. How about you? Are you already in the starting blocks and would like to start now or are you still lying by the warm stove?

In spring, ways open up that no one has ever gone before. The question you have to ask yourself is, are you going the same way as always or are you finally going your own way?

Life is like an adventure and there is no better time than now to move on.

The call for adventure means that destiny has already found the hero. I believe that people who want to become heroes in their lives are usually sick of being victims of their lives. If you’re having trouble with the concepts that they teach you, it’s time to set new goals.

You can either surrender victim status or you can surrender fundamentalism. I’m fucking responsible for my life and I always have a choice. There’s a moment in every hero’s journey when something old has to die for something new to be created.

Nietsche says: “The snake that cannot be skinned, dies.”

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Where you feel most comfortable, that is your way. If you gain more and more joy and satisfaction, financial success will come automatically.

The courage should be greater than the fear. Courage is to deal with fear. Courage is knowing what to do and doing it.

The telling of the story is the treasure of taking the same journey. Slaying the dragon and so on is not the highlight of the hero’s journey — but the return — the sharing of the journey.

Remember one thing, the street sweeper is buried next to the CEO.

Life is very short until we crumble to dust.
