Every child has a hero.
Whether it is a parent, grandparent or teacher they have someone to look up to. A hero represents someone who they admire and place on a pedestal.
A child’s hero shows them the kind of person they imagine they want to be. If their hero is an athlete, a musician, an actor or cartoon character the magic is still in the eyes of the beholder.
Heroes seem to have all the answers and are able to solve any problem as they seem to have all solutions.
It is important to have someone to look up to but often it is said that meeting your idol can have its setbacks as it means that they are real people and that the magic can then be lost forever.
But what about our everyday heroes who do not receive the publicity, wealth or fame that those who are famously recognised for?
They can be harder to spot as they do not draw the crowds or ask for attention.
Local heroes can come in the form of our armed services, – the men and women who fought for peace and freedom.
The firefighters, police, paramedics, doctors, nurses and
teachers who dedicate their lives to serving others.
Heroes could be large or small, and not fit any stereotypes at all. They could be the ones who practice random acts of kindness.
Heroes often remain anonymous.
Just think of Superman who disguised himself as Clark Kent and held a day job.
Then there is a contemporary hero like Lady Ga Ga who emanates her heroes before her including artists like Pink and Madonna who champion the rights of others as they overcame their own challenges before they became famous and shared their messages of hope with their fans.
For a child a hero is someone to worship, admire and profess their love and dedication for life to.
They give them a reason to go for their dreams.
For a business owner, a hero could come in the form of an ideal client, an inspiring public figure or mentor who lit the fire for them to even dare to imagine that they could turn their dream into reality.
Whoever we are and whatever we do we are all inspired by others who seem to tell us our stories in song, film or art that encourage us to live out our dreams. But did you know that if you are inspired by others, there is a good chance that you are also an inspiration to them too?
