YAPClassic: Donald Miller on Becoming the Hero of Your Own Life
When Donald Miller was in his twenties, he felt like a victim: he didn’t believe he would be successful and he was unsatisfied with his weight. As he sharpened his storytelling skills, he realized that there are four personas inside all of us: the victim, the villain, the hero, and the guide, and we can choose to become the heroes of our own lives. In this episode of YAPClassic, Donald will break down these four personas and how we can take control of our lives by shifting the role we embody.
