Who is your hero?

By Stephen Bruyant-Langer
Heroes

Sometimes, I’m asked who my hero is. I used to answer by naming a celebrity.

Earlier on I would have mentioned Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson, Barack Obama or other well-known personalities. Then my answer gradually changed. I started answering that my hero is myself in 10 years. I am chasing myself as I will be in 10 years. And now, 10 years later, when being asked who my hero is, I still answer: “Myself in 10 years”. I’m not even close to becoming my own hero. But maybe I’m getting closer. So, who knows, maybe in 10 years?

Do You Have the Courage to Commit?

Courage to Commit is what you show when you make a choice – and stick to it!

In my family we have a lot of sayings. One of them is “Do something”.
 
This means that you need to take charge and move in a certain direction – not just wait and see what happens. Another is “both-and”. This means that very often it is not a question of doing either-or, but rather choosing to do both. It’s an attitude where you don’t need to limit yourself – rather, you prioritize what you want to do. Sir Winston Churchill used to say: “History will be kind to me. I intend to write it”.

Pain is temporary – quitting lasts forever!

Recently, my family and I had the pleasure of climbing Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest freestanding mountain, reaching Uhuru Peak at 5.895m.
 
The magic combination of the full moon, the glorious sunrise, the view from the top of Africa, and the curve of the horizon was absolutely breathtaking. The adventure gave rise to the following key learning:
