When it seems like all is lost, and the world is being drained of all hope, it is precisely in this moment that the hero rises to take action. It is the moment when heroes are called to create something. They hunger for change and realize that the answer lies in them and they are the solution. This is the part of the story where the hero takes on the heavy load with no guarantee of success, but they straighten their shoulders and push forward anyways.
In today’s episode we met with Steve Janossy, who had no choice but to dare to create meaning in his life under a communist regime in Hungary. With his two brothers, he decided they couldn’t wait any longer for the change they yearned so desperately for.
Steve and his daughter, Linda share stories of what it cost to be daring in a time ruled by a communist regime and provide inspiration for what it means to live out of that same journey today. They provide the solution through what their family calls the three B’s: the board room, ballroom, and backwoods, three landscapes of intense interaction and self-discovery.
Through their stories and lessons, we learn that we can live heroically in any kind of situation and owe it to ourselves and the culture around us to do just that.
