What constitutes a heroic act? One thing’s clear. It’s different acts for different people.
Some may do deeds in front of the whole world, astounding the masses and earning accolades. There’s not a thing wrong with this. It’s simply not the only way to commit heroic acts.
Some people act quietly and purposely away from the spotlight, but achieve enormous good.
For someone battling COVID or cancer or struggling with chronic conditions, a heroic act may just be getting out of bed today.
For someone who’s been victimized or horribly wronged, the act of trusting people again is a heroic act.
For the addict, saying no to one drink, one hit, or one bet is heroic.
Heroic acts come in all shapes and sizes and can be very situational. That’s why I argue with conviction we all have been heroes at one time or another. We all have a hero within us.
Don’t allow the great and public acts of heroism, deserving of praise as they are, diminish or discourage your small act of heroism where you are right now.
They all add up. Every heroic act makes someone’s life or the world a better place.
Appreciate the heroes around you. Own and embody your hero within.
Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment.
I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company.
I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
Ray holds a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Secondary Education in Social Studies from University of Kansas. He lives in Spring Hill, Ks with his wife.
