The Commitment to the Hero’s Journey

Once we have overcome our initial fears and complacency, we make a Commitment to ourselves and to the powers that be, which directed us to chart this course of victory, to live up to the heights to which we are called. When we hear the call, condemn our stubborn refusal, and cross the first threshold of acceptance in our journey, we make a commitment to write our own mythology and become the hero we have been waiting for.

This is where we live up to Gandhi’s call to be the change we want to see in the world. This is where we live independent of the good opinion of others. This is where we do the right thing simply because it’s the right thing to do. This is the hero’s way.
