The Hero’s Journey and Your Work

- - Inspiration, Podcast

heros journey and your work

Everyone loves a good story.
We gather around tables with friends and tell stories.
We listen to podcasts that tell stories.
We watch movies, plays, and read books that all tell stories.
And we do this for a reason— we want to be moved. We want to be caught up in something.
But more than just entertainment, the greatest stories— the ones that you keep coming back to, and the ones that resonate with you deeply— those stories tell you something about the world and yourself.

In this episode, host Dan Cumberland reflects on the qualities of a good story and what they can teach us about ourselves and our search for purpose and meaning in our work.

I really appreciated my time with Eleazar, so much so that I commissioned him shortly after to create the first artwork for this podcast. So you’re likely already familier with his work.

Blythe Hill is the founder of an international movement that raises awareness of sex trafficking and supports the work of anti-trafficking and aftercare organizations.

So often we learn about global problems and feel powerless to do anything about them. I love how Blythe’s work offers a way for anyone to help— for anyone to give their time, energy — to take what you have, by way of interests and opportunities, and put it to work for something big in the world.

She’s taking a problem that can feel far away, and offering an invitation to become part of the solution.

I left this conversation feeling inspired and encouraged. I’m so grateful for the work she does, and that she’s the one leading her organization
