You may not do heroic things every day right now, but here is an easy way to change that. Go down to your local animal shelter and adopt a pet. See, it’s easy! Then every day for the rest of your life, you will be a hero to that new friend of yours.
The reward you receive for this heroic deed is when your dog or cat curls up on your lap and offers you all the love he has to give for the rest of his life. The life that you gave to him by taking him into yours.
