Have you ever considered how much impact your heroes can have on your life? It seems we think of heroes as all of the big names that are paraded across our TVs, the ones who make the big bucks and the ones who are household names. While we can find heroes in those places, it’s important to remember to recognize the heroes around you.
Two of my biggest heroes are my parents. They have taught me so much and have allowed me to experience a life of great versatility. Each day, I try to understand and learn from the business decisions my parents make so that I can continue to enhance my own professionalism. A hero doesn’t have to be someone who scores the winning run, it can be someone who encourages you in the office, teaches you a lesson in customer service and demonstrates great character in the face of adversity. These are the greatest heroes to learn from and appreciate.
Don’t get lost in daydreaming about what it would take to get fame and fortune. Instead, focus on the superstars in your own life. Let them teach you, guide you and help you grow so that one day, you can return that favor to the next in line.
