A victim mentality is rampant in organizations today. My boss is a jerk. This is a dead-end job. I can't change anything here. The result is lost productivity, lack of creativity, departmental in-fighting - a toxic atmosphere. But nobody has to be a victim. The truth is people make themselves victims. It's just an interpretation of reality, a story they tell themselves. People can choose a different story. They can stop seeing themselves as helpless victims and instead discover how to put themselves in charge. Anyone can choose to Be the Hero. Appropriately enough, executive coach and corporate speaker Noah Blumenthal uses a story - of Jeff, a young executive facing what seem to him insurmountable challenges - to show readers how to gain greater success and satisfaction in their lives by transforming the ways they view others, their own situation, and themselves. And he includes a plethora of practical resources that will teach readers how to consistently shift their perspective from victim to hero. This is not seeing the world through rose-colored glasses - but it is seeing through a new lens. One that helps us look beneath the superficial surface of our unhappiness to discover why people act in ways that frustrate us and do something about it. That finds sources of strength in our lives, even in the toughest circumstances. And that gives us the power to change. Victim stories limit us, sap our energy, stifle and frustrate us. Hero stories open up new possibilities, spur us to action. In Be the Hero, Noah Blumenthal offers a universally accessible technique for overcoming inertia and despair and becoming consistently positive, productive, and happy, at home and on the job.

In Quest of the Hero makes available for a new generation of readers two key works on hero myths: Otto Rank's Myth of the Birth of the Hero and the central section of Lord Raglan's The Hero. Amplifying these is Alan Dundes's fascinating contemporary inquiry, "The Hero Pattern and the Life of Jesus." Examined here are the patterns found in the lore surrounding historical or legendary figures like Gilgamesh, Moses, David, Oedipus, Odysseus, Perseus, Heracles, Aeneas, Romulus, Siegfried, Lohengrin, Arthur, and Buddha. Rank's monograph remains the classic application of Freudian theory to hero myths. In The Hero the noted English ethnologist Raglan singles out the myth-ritualist pattern in James Frazer's many-sided Golden Bough and applies that pattern to hero myths. Dundes, the eminent folklorist at the University of California at Berkeley, applies the theories of Rank, Raglan, and others to the case of Jesus. In his introduction to this selection from Rank, Raglan, and Dundes, Robert Segal, author of the major study of Joseph Campbell, charts the history of theorizing about hero myths and compares the approaches of Rank, Raglan, Dundes, and Campbell.

"The positive hero was defined by the Soviets as one who set an example for the reader's behavior. As early as 1860, the merits of this ideal model were a central issue in the war between literary imagination and ideological criticism that raged in Russia for a hundred years." "In The Positive Hero in Russian Literature, Rufus W. Mathewson, Jr., brings a period of Russian literature to life and demonstrates how the battles over the positive hero reappeared with dramatic clarity in the dissident literary movement that developed after Stalin's death. Mathewson argues that the true continuity between nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian prose was to be found in this persistent conflict between contrary views of the real nature and proper uses of literature. This new edition of a widely acclaimed work, first published in 1958 and covering literary developments through 1946, includes chapters on Belinsky, Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn, and Sinyavsky." --Book Jacket.

A brand’s meaning—how it resonates in the public heart and mind—is a company’s most valuable competitive advantage. Yet, few companies really know how brand meaning works, how to manage it, and how to use brand meaning strategically. Written by best-selling author Carol S. Pearson (The Hero Within) and branding guru Margaret Mark, this groundbreaking book provides the illusive and compelling answer. Using studies drawn from the experiences of Nike, Marlboro, Ivory and other powerhouse brands, the authors show that the most successful brands are those that most effectively correspond to fundamental patterns in the unconscious mind known as archetypes. The book provides tools and strategies to: • Implement a proven system for identifying the most appropriate and leverageable archetypes for any company and/or brand • Harness the power of the archetype to align corporate strategy to sustain competitive advantage
