Search for the hero inside yourself. . .

A former student got in contact with me today and needed some inspiration.
I thought what better song to talk about your inner superhero than Search for the hero by M People. 

Sometimes the river flows but nothing breathes
A train arrives but never leaves
It's a shame
Oh, life like love that's walked out of the door
Of being rich or being poor
Such a shame

At times we can get bogged down by what life deals out to us or maybe what we allow to be dealt to ourselves.  We may find that life happens to us, rather than us making things happen in our lives. The inner struggles that people face are huge in today's ever changing and constantly moving world, but the expectations, obligations and commitments remain the same - but still continue to grow beyond the human imagination.

How do we continue to maintain our sense of self and rise above the challenges, issues that need tissues and the general capacity for people to move their problems onto you to solve?  What is it that you need to unlock within yourself?  Why is it important to dig that much deeper?

In this life, long and hard though it may seem
Live it as you'd live a dream
Aim so high
Just keep the flame of truth burning bright
The missing treasure you must find . . . 

I've been having conversations with people lately about their own personal struggles and what it is that they want to have happen, but they seem to come up against some brick walls about how to make that important change to live their dreams.  What is your truth that you hold dear to you?  What is the missing treasure and how do you know that this is the missing treasure that you've found when you've stumbled across it - how prepared are you to keep that flame of truth burning bright?

Because only you and you alone
Can build a bridge across the stream
Weave your spell in life's rich tapestry
Your passport to a feeling supreme

In order for you to make an impact in what you've chosen to do with your life, you need to start with yourself.  Don't compare yourself with what other people are doing and how they're doing it.  Your life is actually about you and the choices that you make.  It has nothing to do with how what they do, impacts on your own life - unless you've shaped it that way.  So take control of your own destiny, make plans, have some goals and be determined to reach them, before somebody else sabotages them for you.  

You've got to search for the hero inside yourself
Search for the secrets you hide
Search for the hero inside yourself
Until you find the key to your life. . . 

Being real with yourself and really knowing who you are and what you can contribute in your lifetime, will definitely steer you in the right direction - forward.  We can't spend our time living in the past - we can acknowledge and learn from what has happened to continue to live in the now.  But we can't forget that what we do now - also affects our future and where we want to be.
Make visible, what you want as your reality.  Otherwise you will never find the key to your life. . .
