Real Heroes of the World

People that change the world are heroes of epic proportion.


These real life superheroes change the world in ways we can’t even imagine. And what’s more, they are always bold, courageous, and ready for action. These superheroes are out of this world and completely incomparable to normal you and normal me. They never fear, fret, or worry. They never take wrong turns, and their ideas never bomb. . .Ok maybe that’s just the picture media, biographies, and our minds like to paint of people who walk in significance.

The truth is when you look at the people who have changed the world the most, it’s amazing how normal they are.

There is only one difference between people who change the world and those who don’t: difference makers put their hand up in spite of their fears and move forward in spite of their weaknesses.

Whereas those who never do anything of note are ruled and controlled by their fears and their apparent lack of talent or preparedness. They let possible what if scenarios suck the life out of their passion. The problem with fear is that it injects its venom into the veins causing paralysis towards any forward movement. What fear (or fears) begin pulsating through your veins every time an opportunity to do something extraordinary rises up: fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of change? Are you afraid your not skilled enough, brave enough, patient enough?

If so, good. That makes you just like every other human on the earth who has ever done anything of worth. Difference makers of the past and present are the ones who break into a cold sweat after making the decision to go. They are the ones who feel insecure and frail; incapable and unworthy; and never close to ready.

Step into the arena of Greater impact

Like a gladiator standing at the entrance to the great colosseum with his heart thumping in his chest and his stomach in knots. He knows it might end in death. He knows he might not be fully ready. He knows the opponent might be stronger. The thunderous crowd might think he’s brave, strong, and handsome or they might think he looks weak, pathetic, and sure to lose. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Only one thing matters: running forward to meet his opponent. he’ll either come out a victor or die trying.

I love how Theodore Roosevelt says it:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

No great man or woman has gone forward unafraid or fully prepared, and no great man or woman has come out completely unscathed. And equally so, no great man or woman has come out insignificant. Their valiant efforts have impacted humanity in unimaginable ways in spite of their slip ups, fears, and failures. So friend, put your hand up and take those steps forward to impact those in your heart to impact. Count the cost and pay it!
