Character is Revealed by Struggle

In Joseph’s Campbell the Hero’s Journey, one key stage of human experience is experiencing the “Abyss.”

Some of us put ourselves through the trials to slay the dragon ahead of it actually happening to be prepared, while others are thrust into it unknowingly.

Whichever journey you are on, eventually you will be tested.

Your character will be revealed in this struggle.

I would argue all of us are being tested right now in Covid times.

When faced with challenges or high-pressure situations, I often ask myself, what is the learning opportunity?

In these moments the layers of an onion are peeled back and character is revealed.

Lean into these anxious times.

You can come out on the other side a changed individual.

Defeating Average.
