The hero is the person who finds their purpose in life and pursues it.
Some people are pushed and become a hero.
In all these tales, the hero begins by looking around his society and finding that something is missing […] decides to leave home, turn his back on everything safe and find a different answer.*
We don’t want to simply exist, we want to make a difference, for someone or something. There are as many possibilities as there are people. It’s how we move forward:
constant and longterm exchanges between many people may have no “economic” benefit, but through them society emerges where there was none before.**
What’s is it that you notice is missing and you must pursue?
