It’s ok to have people who you admire. You listen or read their story and find things that match your life. You feel like you identify with them and they start to take on a different persona and you begin to idolize them. But be very careful about that.
Don’t idolize them. Don’t put them on an unearned pedestal. Don’t make them the center of your life. We can admire their courage and will, but never idolize another living human being who walked this earth.
Be your own hero of your movie. Write your script daily and show up in top form. Act this life out as if its your big break. Let the world admire your craft and you at the same time. Make the ending a happy one and make it an adventure.
Be the hero. The world is waiting.
