Southern Remedy Relatively Speaking | Heroes
The ‘everyday hero’ gene is found inside of everyone, everywhere and is waiting for the right moment to be turned on. It is expressed in simple, ordinary actions of kindness, courage, and love. A hero sacrifices for the greater good and shows true empathy and compassion.So today on Relatively Speaking we discussed heroes, what a hero looks like and how can you be a hero in your own community. We also spoke with callers who shared personal stories of heroes in their lives. Tips on how to be a "Hero"Let go of your egoA real hero knows that their actions might go unnoticed, and that’s okay. Make sure that you are trying to be a hero for the right reasons. You need to be willing to help people who might not even know you have intervened on their behalf. You have to be focused more on the feeling you get from doing the good deed than receiving praise.Initiate the change you want to seeA true hero isn’t all talk. A true hero is constantly thinking about how they can take action and help others. You may be inspired to be a hero for a certain cause or issue, or you may try to be a hero for someone in need.Put others before yourselfThink about other people needs before considering your own.Consider what others want in addition to what makes you happy.Be ready to act when others are passivePeople lead busy lives. Often a typical person is so focused on themselves, they don’t notice or care to act when something is wrong. A hero will be willing to take action and confront injustice straight on. Stick up for a friend, classmate, or coworker you feel is being treated unfairly. Buy a meal for the homeless person everyone keeps walking by on the street. Notice the underdog or the less fortunate and give them a helping hand.
