The myth of one
We are captivated by stories of the self-made hero. Stories of how someone who overcame insurmountable odds by themselves. Stories of survival and struggle.
We're captivated by what seems impossible… because it is impossible. It's a myth.
And there's a subtle danger to these myths because they can convince us that we should be able to succeed in every circumstance - if only we had the same determination as our heroes.
But, it's a myth. It isn't just about grit, perseverance, and the will to survive. It's also about the people who helped lay the foundation, who failed before you, who helped you indirectly, who offered a helping hand.
Against great odds, with some help.
And, help is everywhere. Sometimes it just takes a little determination to find it first.
