An Important Agenda Necessitates Action
An important agenda does indeed necessitate action. In all forms of fiction, the hero is almost always an individual living a normal life, that is called into larger than life circumstances (mostly without them having cause or a reason to be in the circumstances in the first place).
In reality, it is fairly similar and that’s why fiction is so compelling. At some point in our lives, we find ourselves in larger than life circumstances, i.e. our important agenda. These require our focus on a level that we were not expecting to have to endure.
At that moment, a decision is made…is this agenda important enough to warrant taking chances that are not necessarily in one’s favor?
What we learn from the hero story is that heroism is created directly out of altruism. A hero story is not compelling if the hero is only acting in their own interests.
In reality, it is very much the same. When the larger than life moment appears on one’s doorstep, it is usually an altruistic choice as to whether or not one will step up to the plate and do what needs to be done, regardless of the odds.
The greatest heroes in life and in fiction, are most often individuals who had no aspiration to be heroic in the first place. More often than not it is just a person with a heart and a mind that is in the right place and is capable of making a snap decision to act accordingly in the face of an obviously important agenda. As our world goes through this catharsis, we need heroes more than ever. Here’s hoping that when that moment shows up on each of our doorsteps, we have the courage to do the right thing, regardless of the odds???
