As a child, I loved Spiderman.
I collected the comics and have a picture of myself at 8 years old with a person dressed as Spiderman at our local mall.
Spiderman and especially his alter ego Peter Parker were relatable.
Peter was a nerdy student who had ‘normal’ human problems like school, girls, and work.
When he was Spiderman, he was powerful, but not overpowered like Superman.
He constantly had to overcome challenges.
He was sarcastic and funny.
But deep down, he was all about responsibility and doing the right thing.
He inspired me.
Everyone has heroes in their life.
Those heroes might be fictional characters from your favorite stories.
They could be famous leaders you’ve read about or been inspired by.
Or your heroes could be people you’ve directly influenced you personally. They could be parents, teachers, coworkers, athletes, soldiers, or friends.
A hero is someone who brings out the best in you.
Maybe you’re going through a struggle in your life, and you think back to the challenges your heroes overcame.
If they can do it, you can do it too.
But let’s turn it around. You’ve likely had heroes in your life, but the question I want you to think about today is…
Whose hero are you?
Who do you inspire?
It could be as simple as a smile and a kind word on a hard day.
It could be something you said that lifted someone’s spirits and helped them have faith to move forward even when life looked tough.
It could be a story you told, a book you wrote, a speech you gave, or an email you sent out.
I recently saw a post on Facebook from a popular joint venture broker.
He listed me as one of the most influential people in his life because of one of my courses he purchased way back in 2006.
I’ve seen many statements like this over the years, but each one is impactful to me.
You can influence people you’ve never even met or directly corresponded with.
Your story and your message can expand way beyond what you might ever expect.
You inspire one person. That can become a domino effect where that person goes on to influence thousands of people…all initiated by one simple action you took today.
There are people out there waiting for you to step up and become the hero you were meant to be.
And you can do it on purpose…just because you choose to.
One of the ways you can claim your hero status is through emails.
You’ll discover the secret of hero positioning inside of Autoresponder Alchemy.
It’s no surprise that heroes like Spiderman inspire people.
Their stories are based on principles that have influenced people for millennia.
You can tap into those same principles to earn more from every email you send.
But your influence won’t stop with email. These same principles apply to everything you communicate in your life and business.
