|Here’s what you can do to become a hero. (by moralheroes)|
|(1) Educate Yourself Learn about the world around you. One thing you will notice about our heroes is that they value education. Often their interest in understanding the people and world around them involves earning degrees at universities.|
|(2) Have Compassion Practice loving others. The main difference between a hero and a villain is often their concern for others. Putting other’s needs before your own is humbling and requires conscious effort and delicate balance.|
|(3) Network Become a leader at sharing ideas and dreams. Rarely does a hero accomplish anything significant alone.|
|(4) Find Inspiration Study your past heroes. All heroes learn from the wisdom of others. Often their inspiration comes from former heroes. Many times inspiration came from parents or wise mentors who encouraged them to be bold and take action.|
|(5) Prepare to Sacrifice A strong commitment often requires deep personal sacrifice. The major difference between an altruistic person and hero is usually their conscious effort to give up something so that others can be better off. To be a hero you may have to risk losing your free time, social status, your economic advantage and wealth, your comfort or security, or even your life. You are going to have to give up something personal to achieve something greater.|
We also hope that someday you will be one of our heroes!
|Wouldn’t it be great if your friends and loved ones also knew about it? Share this to your friends right away! If you have loved it, Im sure they will love it too…|
