“Self-trust is the essence of heroism.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
Everybody respects heroes because they rise above average to do extraordinary things. Common wisdom sees heroism as something you attain by serving others. It’s that firefighter who saves lives or that doctor who finds a cure for a disease. But maybe heroism doesn’t require such remarkable work. Maybe if we just put trust in who we are and emanate confidence, then that will make us a hero.
According to American transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson, believing in yourself makes you a hero.
Serving other people makes you a hero.
What makes somebody a hero?
