Two-Minute Tune-Up 6.19.12 Achieving Hero Status

When I get disillusioned with adventure movies or television it is usually because the heroes are portrayed with a level of courage, strength, and confidence that is ridiculously beyond the norm.

Instead of being whiners, complainers, fear-ridden, or jerks that they may be in real life, the story lines sell the illusion that they have effortlessly mastered cool, noble character (usually at a very young age).

In reality, this type of character is earned at great expense.

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.  
– Mother Teresa
