This week is a turning point…or not. As Og states, “I can accomplish far more than I have, and I will, for why should the miracle which produced me end with my birth?” Now comes the time to ask the question. Will I take the Hero’s Journey, or will I refuse the call?
The Hero’s Journey is a call to adventure to step out of the known into the unknown. To accept, or not accept, is a life defining moment. I can continue to live the life I have had thus far that has been built by expectations of those around me, or I can accept the courage that is within me to move forward into an extraordinary life…the amazing life that was intended for me.
I’ve spent the past 4 months preparing myself with the guidance of the MKMMA staff, my guide, and my MMA partner. I will answer the call, and step into the unknown. I will summon the courage to move forward towards the life I dreamed of, knowing all the while that my MMA is there for me. I will let that “loser”, the person with fear and skepticism within me, die. I will fight my dragons and then embrace them. I will be transformed, be in harmony as one with my creator, and return full-circle to a life filled with adventure, love, prosperity, and magnificent service to others.
As Og said, “I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open.”
How will you respond when asked to take the Hero’s Journey?
