We seem to be fascinated by Superheroes. Hollywood makes a lot of money based on this fact. Many idolize heroes based on their courage. Courage only exists when risk is involved. There aren't a lot of movies made about a person who sits in their basement all day playing video games and posting cat memes on Instagram. But put Dwayne Johnson on a Skyscraper with no plot and we rush to the theater. We admire heroes not only for what they accomplish but for the risks that they take to achieve those accomplishments. Life should not be reckless. We are not called to run aimlessly into oncoming traffic and hope that we survive. We shouldn't risk injury or death. But life is not meant to be without risk. We must take risks to achieve our full potential. Playing it safe will only get us so far. Risk requires trust and faith and confidence. Risk requires us to understand that failure isn't the end of the world but instead, failure is a sign that we at least tried our best to reach our full potential. Today is a great day to be a Hero. Take some risks that allow you the opportunity to either succeed or failure.
