In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Unsung Heroes.”
We all have our semi-secret, less-known personal favorites — a great B-side, an early work by an artist that later became famous, an obscure (but delicious) family recipe. Share one of your unsung heroes with us — how did you discover it? Why has it stayed off everyone’s radar?
Since childhood, we all grew up listening to the heroic stories from Mahabharata, Ramayan, Fairy tales and various other folk tales.
What is the importance of story telling?
Why heroic stories were told to us over and over again until they got imprinted in our memories forever?
- Stories are the easiest and best ways to teach us human values.
- Heroic stories inspire us.
- They teach us to how to face worst situations in our lives.
- They help us not to panic and face the deepest fears of our lives with courage and determination.
I believe there exists a HERO in each one of us. But sadly, most of us do not believe in our own selves. You often hear people admiring heroism exhibited by characters in a movie. What they often forget is “There exists a superhero in each one of us”
All it takes is just one question to awaken the superhero inside us.
“What would you do if you were not afraid of this?”
When the fear gets expelled out of us, we get the courage to face any situation. We walk the extra mile to achieve what we want. We seldom get demoralized with failures that we encounter during the journey. That is when we start trusting the super hero factor inside us more.
So the if someone asks me who would be that unsung hero in my life.
My answer would be
Because I am the superhero of my life.
Who is the unsung hero of your life?
