When people suffer an injury or any other challenge, fear and short term thinking can take over. This leads to paralysis – a helplessness – and you desperately look for someone to save you. This is a natural response – but a reactive response – and not a proactive response.
In virtually every story told there is a hero. The hero is not perfect. The hero has problems and struggles. He then meets a guide who gives them a plan. If the hero follows the plan – he succeeds. If he does not, he fails.
In order to succeed you have to execute the plan. The guide does not execute it for you! Did Mr. Miyagi fight the fight, or did Karate Kid?
If you don’t execute, and expect the guide to do the work for you, you will become frustrated, point fingers, and ultimately fail.
Be the hero of your own story.
