In this first excerpt of the The CAP Podcast, Episode 18, I talk about heroes and introduce the concept of the Awesome Avatar. I also talk a little bit about archetypes and what relation they have to heroes.
A brilliant debater and England’s first and only Jewish Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, once said, “Nurture your mind with great thoughts; to believe in the heroic makes heroes.”
We all need heroes. Evoking them is empowering, a vital part of our emotional and spiritual growth. Without the examples of the heroes in our lives, how would we know the greatness we can all achieve and become the heroes of our own lives? Heroes point to the greatness that lies within all of us.
“We’ve had heroes for thousands of years,” says Frank Farley, PhD, a Temple University psychologist who has dedicated his career to the study of heroism. He says that “heroes show us how it works. Even if we don’t take the risk ourselves, we admire it when we see it.”
Many psychologists, including Dr. Farley, believe that studying and emulating heroes can help guide us to successful lives and careers.
