Resistance is natural … and futile!

In myths and legends, heroes fight resistance of some kind. Joseph Campbell reminds us that heroes often resist the Call because they are facing the greatest of all fears — fear of the unknown. Usually, at this point heroes encounter a mentor or sage who offers advice and encouragement to help them counter the resistance.

As the leader, the work required to instigate transformational change can seem daunting. You may not yet feel fully committed to the Call and your tentativeness makes it difficult to inspire others to join you.

However, once you look around for guidance, support and encouragement, you will likely find help is making its way to you. Wise words at just the right time will help you stop questioning and make the commitment to move forward. This moment of resolve is when your Heroic Journey really begins.
