“At times we all feel frustrated, stressed, or out of control. What if you could be at your best when your challenges are on the rise? Well, you can. Be the Hero introduces us to the way of the “Everyday Hero” and shows how to turn self-defeating thoughts and behaviors into heroic actions. All day long, without even realizing it, we tell ourselves dozens of stories—about other people, our situations, and ourselves—stories that shape our emotions and behavior. These stories are so powerful, they make us think and act like either a hero or a victim. Be the Hero shows you how to choose the stories that lead to personal and professional success. In the tradition of the best storytellers, Noah Blumenthal weaves a tale of a young professional’s journey from victim to hero, one that is both captivating and profound. The powerful resources at the end of the book, including a hero tip of the week, smart cards, manager tip sheets, and more, will help you make your hero…
In this engaging parable, author Noah Blumenthal shows that we are all master storytellers. Our stories are vivid, detailed, and convincing. These aren’t the stories we tell around the watercooler or the campfire. They are the stories we tell ourselves-the ones that rattle around in our heads and move us to emotions and actions.
If we don’t pay attention, these stories can take us down the victim path-blaming, frustrated, helpless, and hopeless. But at any moment, we have the power to identify and change these stories. We can choose the right stories-the ones that enable us to become “Everyday Heroes.”
Be the Hero brings to life the entertaining tale of a struggling young professional whomoves from victim to hero bylearning to become aware of and change the stories that are holding him back.Battling negativity, inertia, and anger, he learns to see life through a new lens, to create new hero stories that develop his capacity to chart his own course.
The powerful resources at the end of the book, including a hero tip of the week, smart cards, manager tip sheets, and more, will help you make your hero stories stick.
This simple parable will change your life forever.
