Joseph Campbell called it The Call to Adventure.

It’s that little voice in your head that whispers “why not you?” But after a brief moment of inspiration, you inner bullhorn rattles off every reason why not. Since you asked.

Because you’re not good enough. Strong enough. Fit enough. Smart enough. You know the drill.

But what if you did it anyway?

And what if you did it and failed miserably?

Would you give up, or would you pick yourself back up and try again?

Shelli Varela chose the latter. In today’s episode of The Quote of the Day Show, Shelli shares her incredibly inspiring story of going from working in a nail shop to becoming a firefighter.

“There is a hero inside of every single one of you waiting for you to say YES.”

What’s calling you?
