I asked Robert to share his thoughts on what it takes to be a hero.  He said that heroes aspire to embody three qualities:

  • The clarity to see what is required of them.
  • The courage to accept what is required of them.
  • The capacity to discharge what is required of them.

He explained that there are three types of heroes.

  • The superhero is able to direct the way the world runs.
  • The occasional hero can do something heroic but they can’t repeat it.
  • The everyday hero is reliably, repeatably, and responsibly heroic on a daily basis.

If you want to be a hero in your life and endeavors, be consistent. Robert says, “Discipline is not an end in itself, but a means to an end.”

“Robert Fripp’s presentation was as insightful as it was sensationally delivered.
