DTD #83: Quitting Our Jobs and Embarking on Our Hero’s Journeys – What it’s Been Like

You know the hero’s journey: the ancient myth where the hero leaves home, embraces the unknown, slays the dragon, and returns home an altered soul—battered, bruised, triumphant.

Now it’s time to embark on your own.

If you think the hero’s journey is reserved for fairy tales and blockbusters, think again.

Every human being is called to live an extraordinary life, yet few answer the call.  It’s the inspiration that strikes us externally and internally—to move to another country, set out on a new career, or simply become a better human being.

On this episode of DTD, we plunge into our own hero’s journeys: what caused us to leave the life we knew; the fears we’re facing and overcoming; the wisdom we’ve accrued, the tests we’ve faced, and where we are now.

We are still students in the early stages, although undoubtedly moving in the right direction.

We hope this episode can give you the inspiration to become the hero of your own story. When you accept the call and take that first step, your life will change in ways you never could have imagined.

      Love to hear that! Once you embark, you can’t imagine what’ll happen. I’m sure it’s scary, but that’s what life is about, facing that fear and gaining so much more from it. I appreciate you checking out the episode!

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
