What is the Hero's Spirit?
So what exactly is a hero spirit?
It's a willingness to make the necessary sacrifices in order to achieve a worthwhile objective.
If you want something, you have to work hard and do what needs to be done to get it.
That's the hero spirit.
This article will show you how you can awaken your hero spirit and use it to make an extraordinary life for yourself.
How to Develop Your Hero Spirit
The human mind is fascinating.
We're all born with a hero's instinct inside of us, but we were never taught how to use it.
It's our responsibility to bring our hero instinct to the surface and let it shine for all the world to see.
The hero instinct manifests itself in different ways.
Confidence, kindness and altruism, and determination to succeed are all signs of the hero spirit at work.
People who have this spirit go beyond themselves to achieve a worthwhile objective, which benefits themselves and others.
Do You Have a Hero’s Spirit? Yes, You Do
As a hero, you're prepared to step up and take on challenges so you can get where you want to go.
Your intuition guides you in making tough decisions and overcoming various obstacles.
You know what makes an exceptional leader, and you have an intuitive sense of direction that helps you stay focused on your goals.
Your inner hero is always with you.
It only wants the best for you and for everyone else you care about.
Triggering Your Hero Instinct
The hero instinct is triggered by challenge and desire.
It's a survival response that all humans have.
It's what kicks in when you're faced with a difficult situation and have no choice but to fight or fail.
That surge of adrenaline and determination allows you to seize opportunities and avoid danger.
Triggering your hero spirit boosts your self-confidence and gives you the courage to overcome any obstacle.
The first step is to understand what triggers your inner hero, so you can activate it at will.
Once you know that, the next steps are fairly simple:
(1) Take responsibility for everything that happens to you;
(2) Use your intuition as guidance for when and how much risk should be taken; and
(3) Live with courage - not recklessness.
Be Your Own Hero
Offer to Help
You reinforce your heroic spirit by offering to help people and being a positive force in the world.
Offering help shows that you care about other people as well as yourself.
Your own well-being is at the top of the list.
If you don't take care of yourself, you're no good to anyone.
Offering help and developing your hero instinct doesn't mean you have to save the world.
There are a million small ways you can contribute.
Try every day to do at least one nice thing for someone to help them out.
The most important piece is making a conscious effort to be your best self.
"Offer to help people who need a hand."
I've published hundreds of articles and written three books about mindset and personal excellence.
Gratitude and appreciation are common themes in all of them.
Showing appreciation sends a signal out to the universe that you value what you have.
Strangely enough, when you're thankful, you attract more into your life.
Set a target in your sights and work systematically and consistently until you hit it.
"Show respect and appreciation at all times."
Increase Your Self-Confidence
Unshakable self-belief is the hallmark of a hero.
How can you succeed at anything without the confidence in yourself to make it so?
The best way to develop self-confidence is to set a worthy goal or intention.
Take action and make measurable progress towards your goal.
Not only will you feel better about yourself, but you also feel motivated to keep on working.
Put yourself in positions just beyond your comfort zone, and watch that zone expand over time.
As your confidence grows, you can take on more.
Self-belief empowers you to do more, be more, and to have more.
"Face the world with confidence and self-belief."
Do What Makes You Happy
Doing what makes you happy gives your life meaning and purpose, and is a prerequisite to fulfilment and abundance.
Unfortunately, we don't live forever. Our time here is finite.
Think about what gives you the most enjoyment and spend as much time as you can doing that.
It sounds overly simple, but too many people put off their ideal life until "someday" when "something" happens.
Don't settle for mediocrity. Do it today!
Design your life in a way that best suits you, revolving around your interests and your goals.
Life's short. Be happy.
"Follow a path in life that makes you happy."
Be Your Best Self
When you display your hero instinct, you're showing your best self to the world.
Your best self is liberated from negative self-talk, procrastination, and irrational fear.
Committing to personal excellence puts you on a long-term path of growth and accomplishment.
Get clear about how you want to change your life and start making changes.
Be honest with yourself.
Are you living each day as your best self?
Or could you be doing a lot better?
"Become your best self and live your best life."
Think for Yourself
When you're living your hero instinct you follow your own internal compass.
Listen to your intuition, analyze your thoughts and feelings, and follow the path YOU believe is the right one for YOU.
Support yourself mentally and emotionally and choose to live independently.
The hero spirit doesn't sheepishly follow the crowd.
Think things through and analyze the validity of any thought/statement/belief before accepting or declining.
A hero has their own resources and life plan and advances regardless of what's happening around them.
Real personal power is the freedom to live your life independently of anyone else.
You're not a follower. You're a leader.
Chart your own course in life and enjoy every moment you have.

Raise Your Standards
A hero doesn't rest on their accomplishments.
They understand that growth is never-ending and that success and happiness come from continual improvement.
If we're not growing we're stagnating.
Say you get your body into amazing shape. If you don't build on that momentum and keep improving, you'll lose what you have.
A hero stays on top of their game and knows that whatever level they reach, there's always another level just above it.
The hero's instinct is a continual desire and effort to be more, do more, and have more.
"Challenge yourself to be more, do more, and have more."
Hang Out With Heroes
Our personal standards rise and fall in line with our peers and our environment.
The most reliable way to improve and reinforce your hero instinct is to spend time with other heroes.
These people have overcome self-defeating thoughts and behaviours (or at least they know how to manage them).
They have meaningful goals and objectives that they're actively pursuing.
And they make their decisions based on what makes sense to them.
"Spend your time around people who live the hero's instinct."
7 Benefits of Living Your Hero Spirit
Relationships are based on shared respect.
But for other people to respect you, you first have to respect yourself.

Amazing Career Success
Hero's work extraordinarily hard and perform their work to an exceptional standard.
Your inner hero manifests itself as an innate drive and desire to achieve and advance yourself and others.
If someone has this instinct, they're more likely to take intelligent risks and make the necessary sacrifices for long-term success.

These are invaluable traits to an employer or for your own business.
How you think and communicate are the keys to your future success.
"A hero takes their career in their own hands and becomes exceptional at what they do."
You can't let your inner hero shine without robust, thriving health.
Your essence of life will be directly proportional to the state of your mental and physical health.
And you accomplish that by developing positive lifestyle habits that are aligned with your highest values and goals.
If you've ever been seriously ill or injured, you know the importance of excellent health.
The hero spirit is a powerful mind and body.
"Think and act healthy and live life with confidence and abundance."
Creativity emanates from the soul.
If your soul is broken or sad, your inner creativity can't shine.
When your hero spirit is alive, your creativity flows naturally.
Creativity expands your hero spirit, and your hero spirit cultivates your creativity.
When your soul is free, your life has meaning and purpose.
And from that state of being, your creativity can be fully expressed.
"You're never alone as long as your hero spirit is with you."
Have you ever had moments when you feel like a superhero, capable of anything?
You're bulletproof, and you feel invincible.
You feel that way when you face and overcome challenges and produce positive outcomes.
Those moments are worth capturing as they represent your most significant growth as a human being.
Self-esteem comes as a result of accomplishing challenging tasks.
Your hero instinct seeks out worthwhile, inherently difficult pursuits, so don't be intimidated by them.
Embrace them and go all in!
"Accomplishing important, difficult goals makes you feel like a hero."
A Real Zest for Life
You know your hero's instinct is alive when you feel a real passion for life.
That passion is like a superpower that makes you want to take on challenges and surmount obstacles.
The hero instinct is what fuels your drive to accomplish more than you ever thought possible.
It's also an essential characteristic of every exceptional leader who's ever lived.
Your attitude is a choice.
When you awaken your inner hero, you can start experiencing the juice of life.
"Choose to live like a hero and enjoy the beauty and richness of life."
