HEROISM AND COSTS
by Luke Weinhagen
Heroism is the application of virtue where that application has a potential direct cost to you.
It is hard to train for directly because people interpret virtue so subjectively but training the foundation, overcoming inaction in the face of costs, is something anyone can do. Expose yourself to situation where you have a strong possibility to fail. Fail. Get back up.
It is best if your parents do this for you as young as possible, but nowadays most parents don’t. So it is likely up to you.
Find something you are motivated by (so you have a reason to get back up) that also offers you the likelihood of initial failure and overextend yourself into it (ideally not something that will kill you is you are just beginning to embrace failure).
