IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
A man can’t be anyone’s hero until he becomes his own hero first.
To become his own hero a man must be willing to plumb the depths and explore the aspects of his life that are most dear to him, his relationships with his wife, friends, children, and even coworkers.
When he’s accomplished this task, he is his own hero, and everyone else’s too.
Today, instead of slaying a dragon, he has to slay his flawed notion of manhood. He has to prove his inner-hero courage by becoming a fully empowered, authentic, emotionally open and honest man, first with himself, and ultimately with everyone.
Men need to learn to be emotionally honest in relationships. When a man musters the courage to share his deepest truth, he creates a platform for his inner hero to develop.
A man who is his own hero doesn’t surrender to fear, and never allows fear to dictate his behavior. He stands up to his fear because he knows how to move beyond it.
A man who brags about his wealth or power misses being his own hero by a mile because inflating his own ego is the least manly or heroic act.

Jordan Peterson observed that virtues aim for balance and to avoid the extremes of the vices. Cultivating judgment about the difference between virtue and vice is the beginning of wisdom.
Modern relativism asserts judging how to live is impossible, because good and virtue are relative. Thus relativism’s version of “virtue” is “tolerance.” This leads to people broadcasting their tolerance as a form of self-promotion, and secret vice, which is also known as virtue signaling.
