About

Welcome to Lessons From Heroes!

So you’ve reached the “About” page. My keen sense of intuition tells me that you want to know more regarding what this site is about! I’ll try to explain. Let’s start with a chart…

I’m a big fan of comics, superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, and related topics. For want of a better term, let’s call all that stuff “Geekdom.”

I’m also really into self-development. I have a master’s degree in psychology, and I’ve read hundreds of self-help books.

Lessons from Heroes is all about where these two things overlap.

Part of the reason companies like Marvel and DC are so successful, is because they tell stories that inspire. We read about Batman, or we see Tony Stark on the big screen, and we think, “I want to be more like that!”

But… this begs a very big question… “How?

What can we learn from heroes? Are there life lessons to be learned in their adventures and successes – as well as their failures? How can we use their great stories to improve our own lives? How can we emulate their best qualities?

Lessons From Heroes aims to answer these questions!

And that, my friend, is what this site is about!
