The Hero Series

What does it mean to be a hero? Does the world need to be saved? If so, who will get the job? I know I feel that I was born with a special purpose, and most people I talk to feel the same way. This series is an exploration of whether life is a game of king of the mountain, or if we are all gifted in our own way.

Do you ever wonder what is the meaning of life, and what is your purpose? I explain the meaning of life in the simplest term. Once we answer this question, we can then explore how to live a fulfilling life or, in other words, how to turn dreams into reality.
Aboard the Perseverance is my name, "Scott Stoll," engraved on a silicon chip. Does that make me an astronaut? Are dreams written in stone — or silicon? Can Martians read? 
In celebration of my website's 20th anniversary and my 50th lap around the sun, I've written an extra-special story about how I live a life worth living, including making memorable moments and how friends shed new light on life.
Words like adventure, hero and epic have become cliches that have lost their meaning. So unfortunately we can't say: "I'm a a hero going on an epic adventure," and be meaningful. So, what exactly is an adventure? And how do we make every day an adventure?
Is it true that the only people who achieve great things are the ones who take risks and reach for the impossible. Is that what it means to be a hero?
An introduction to enjoying the little things in life and finding an adventure right in your own backyard. Before I even returned home from bicycling the world, I wondered if I would see everything in a new light of wisdom, or whether I might die of boredom.
The word "argonaut" comes from an ancient tale of the bravest heroes in Greek Mythology — Jason and the Argonauts (literally meaning sailors of the Argo).
This classic myth is one of the most ancient stories that exist. It chronicles Jason’s quest for the Golden Fleece and the restoration of his family’s throne. This archetypal adventure sets the example for the plot of almost all modern stories, and it may even model what it means to be human: to live, to be challenged, to endure, and to make the world a better place.
