I think we all want to be the one to change the world.
Even if we won't admit it.
Secretly, way down there beneath the crusty shell of our shame and insecurities, there's a "Hero" in all of us. A Hero that wants to be the chosen one who slays Grendel, battles with Zeus, destroys the one ring, and rides off with the chick in the sports car.
I guess you can say we all want to be James Bond.
But the simple fact is life ain't that way. There may be a "truth" to those Hero tales. But that "truth" gets transmuted by everyday realities.
So going off into the Forbidden Forest dodging giant spiders and chatting with Centaurs is really just cleaning up after your dog runs mud into the house (and not getting mad to boot).
Getting your hand sliced off by Darth Vader is stubbing your toe, and your kid giggles, and it makes you laugh too.
Meeting a Sage at the top of the mountain who will show you the secrets of the universe is just studying and practicing a lot until you find your "inner guru".
I don't know. I'm just rambling here.
But I think you get the point.
It's not the big theatrical things in life that count. It's the small things.
And one small thing you can do to help right now is donate to your local food shelter. It's one of those things where a small amount of money to you (like 50 bucks) can help some people in really bad shape be a lot more comfortable.
As a celery stick to get you to do this, I will critique 5 of your sales emails to help you boost sales.
So you're almost guaranteed to make your $50 donation back in spades.
If you'd like to do that, head here to find your closest food pantry:
