BT 11: Where are You at on the Hero’s Journey?
Did you know that Star Wars and Tommy Boy are basically the same movie? That’s because of the path that each story follows – the hero’s journey. And your life and the lives of your friends also can follow a similar path, especially if you’re making art. The challenge is to acknowledge that you are on the path of the hero’s journey. And then to get clear on exactly which part of the path you’re on. This will help you be more effective as an artist.
This episode talks about:
- How to deal with people who are more successful than you.
- How to treat yourself when you see yourself as being unsuccessful.
- How to deal with people who crave your company, when you don’t crave theirs.
