What could we achieve?

In our earliest years we aspire to be like the heroes of the comic book variety, strong, courageous and true. And then it seems that life gets in the way.  We get sidetracked, distracted, bought. We manage to convince ourselves that such leaders belong in the world of childhood fiction.

After all, the leaders in our world, the non-comic world, are all too often seen to be self-serving, expenses-cheating and transparently fraudulent, and set no kind of example for new leaders, society at large, or ourselves to follow.

What if we could re-connect with our inner beliefs in integrity, honour, strength and courage? What if we could quell the fears that rise up as we consider standing up and standing for what we believe to be right and good and true? What then could we achieve?
