Sample Book Insights:
#1 The need to take the journey is innate in the human species. If we do not risk, we may feel numb and experience a sense of alienation. People who are discouraged from taking journeys may feel as though they have lost their souls.
#2 The classic hero myth describes a kingdom that is a wasteland at the beginning of the story. The hero, who is usually young and dissatisfied with the status quo, goes on a journey and returns with a new and life-affirming perspective.
#3 The world today is one of uncertainty, and it is up to us to face it and learn how to deal with it. We must prepare ourselves for the possibility of not achieving our goals, and the joy that comes from achieving them.
#4 The hero’s journey is a story of individual and group transformation. It allows us to adapt to a changing world without becoming chameleons. We must go inward to find an authentic response to the challenges that face us, and we become more authentic.
