In case you missed it, The Mission Daily is re-releasing our first ten-part series on accelerated learning! For those who’ve listened to us from the start, it’s a good opportunity to revisit these important tips for how to be a better you. For those who are new to TMD, this series provides a great jumping on point and education into what, exactly, accelerated learning is.
Chad and Ian talk about how to find meaning in life, why you need to be following your own path (not someone else’s) and why we all need to find our own hero’s journey.
0:59 Did you know we have a book club?
3:00 The story of Joseph Campbell in one sentence
– “A young man goes into the woods to read for five years and then comes out and has discovered things.”
4:00 The 17-step process that is the hero’s journey
-We won’t go into all 17 steps of this today, but it’s definitely an idea worth exploring. The digest version is that the hero’s journey is a story pattern found in fictional stories dating back thousands of years. Usually there’s a hero who goes on an adventure, fights some great evil, and learns an important lesson or two along the way.
5:19 How the hero’s journey influences our own stories
-The hero’s journey is all about improvement. A hero leaves on an adventure, and by the time they come back home they’ve improved as a person in some way. The same holds true for accelerated learning.
8:00 Following your own path to success
-Your journey may be different from someone else’s, and that’s okay! We all walk our own path in life, so trying to follow someone else’s will only result in a dead-end for you. Even if it seems pointless, keep following your path and eventually you’ll arrive at your destination.
