Who are you a hero for?
The Greek concept of heroism
“For much of human history, the art of the hero wasn’t left up to chance; it was a multidisciplinary endeavor devoted to optimal nutrition, physical self-mastery, and mental conditioning…The art of the hero wasn’t about being brave; it was about being so competent that bravery wasn’t an issue.” From the book Natural Born Heroes by Christopher McDougall
In Greece, there is a word – Philotimo. “Elder Paisiou aptly defined philotimo as “that deep-seated awareness in the heart that motivates the good that a person does. A philotimos person is one who conceives and enacts eagerly those things good.” from an article by Jack Schafer Ph.D.
