E27 The Fool and The Hero
“Life is like arriving late for a movie, having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions, and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends.”― Joseph Campbell
The Fool elements of the psyche spit from its heroic elements. Our hero starts the journey as the Innocent and is full of integrity, faith and courage. The Trickster shows up as a sidekick who provides street smarts that the hero needs to survive, but who may not be consistent with the heroic self-image.
The hero’s foolish elements need to split off just enough so they are not in control, yet not repressed. Keep these elements as the foolish sidekick.
Using the more “heroic” Ego and the Trickster or Fool sidekick allows a strategy to be found for saving the victim (Orphan) that is both clever and moral so they do not have to take on obstacles directly.
The Ego identifies with order. It wants an orderly world and is horrified by chaos in the culture or the psyche. The Fool, however, is allied with chaos and disorder. It is only when we have developed a long standing relationship to our internal Fool sidekick that we can “trust the process” even in challenging times. When that trust is well developed, we can enjoy the ride, like people do on a roller coaster.
People who have taken their journeys and developed an integrated Self can trust their instincts. When they live by their deepest, essential Selves, they can “follow their bliss” without fear of doing harm to themselves or others. They know how to trust the process of life, and when they do so, life can become a dance – an expression of pure joy.

She is an internationally recognized Business Coach and Trainer bringing 20+ years’ experience in military leadership. Donna has been a serial entrepreneur for the last 25 years owning a range of businesses experiencing the unique challenges solopreneurs face with small business growth.

Her specialty is helping organizations navigate through change, challenge and tragedy. The combination of her intensive study of the mind, plus practical applications in human potential, Donna provides a unique perspective on leadership, personal growth, sales, communication, and team building.
A high point of Donna's training career happened when she accompanied Dr. John C. Maxwell and his team on a country transformation mission. At the request of the Costa Rican government, the Maxwell team successfully trained 15,000 Round Table facilitators in three days, resulting in a 2% transformation of that nation and projected to reach another 60,000 Costa Ricans the following week. Her trademark energetic communication style and teaching skills have earned her a reputation as a highly effective speaker and respected facilitator.
Londina Cruz is an International Trainer, Executive Coach, and Keynote Speaker with the John Maxwell Team and a Strategic Coach with Anthony Robbins. Londina is a part of Global Transformation with the John Maxwell Foundation, training thousands of leaders in Paraguay and Costa Rica to help transform the values and culture of these nations.
She has spent more than 25 years studying, coaching and consulting in personal mastery and human performance techniques. These techniques include emotional and social intelligence trainings that elevate individuals, leaders and their organizations to excel well beyond current standards – offering a dynamic competitive advantage.
Londina has taken a situation that would devastate most individuals, being hit by a drunk driver, and has turned it into her life force. In this accident, Londina sustained a traumatic head injury, broken back and broken neck. The doctors gave her little hope of a normal life. She has now turned this challenge into an extraordinary life of empowering others to turn their fears into freedom and reach their potential.
Mastering her limiting beliefs and overcoming all that doctors had told her, Londina has thrived physically as well.
She has become a Triathlete (competing in a Half-Ironman and medaling in numerous other triathlons), a two-time marathon runner (Nike Women’s in San Francisco and the Marine Corps in Washington), and a cyclist.
She has released 100 lbs. by taking control of her thoughts instead of allowing thoughts to control her.
She knows what it takes to take you and your team from where you are to where you want to be.
