I rise above opportunities to express fear and anger.
I choose to respond to life with and from love.
I choose to be better than the examples others set.
I grow and evolve with life’s experiences.
I am my own hero.
One of life’s great lessons is to rise above and be better for our circumstances and trials. We learn, grow and evolve when we take every experience – not just the good ones – and become better and more loving for them. It can be easy to repeat the bad choices and behaviour others have modeled for us but the desirable way is to be better than those examples and to let them inspire us to greatness. The easy path is to react to life’s difficulties with negative resistance; the desirable way is to respond to challenges with hope, faith, courage and optimism. Some of our greatest heroes are those we see as having overcome formidable circumstances in order to rise to their highest potential. We can all be our own heroes and heroines, being better – always better – for what life offers us.
