The Hero's journey is an internal psychological drama. "Each of us has a Hero, an Sage, a mercenary, a Princess within. Each of these pulls and pushes as we journey through the story that is our life. We need all of these energies to pursue life's adventure." As the Hero journeys the 'road of trials,' and we pursue the trials of our everyday lives, the Heroic task is to "integrate these parts or energies and win the prize -- our individuality, our sense of place, our sense of purpose."

The Call to Adventure lifts us out of our everyday life where we focus on our individual problems and our individual life, into an engagement with larger problems. In Star Wars, "Luke sees the hologram of Princess Leia and the hero learns he is not the only one in trouble, society is in trouble -- there are problems larger than his own. His personal circumstances and larger causes become intertwined. In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy has a problem -- she is an orphan and does not have a sense of place on the farm. The farm and by extension, the community or nation also has a problem -- it is in depression."
.

The final confrontation is where the hero must face their greatest fear. In star wars, Luke duels with Darth Vader. In the Matrix, Neo faces Agent Smith in the subway station. In the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy faces the Wicked Witch. "Adventures lead to a great confrontation between good and evil. We each discover that we can survive ordeals we did not think we could survive."
