The 188 phase Hero's Journey (Monomyth) is the templet upon which the huge bulk of successful narratives and Film Industry blockbusters are based upon. In fact, ALL of the 100s of Film Industry movies we have got deconstructed (see uniform resource locator below) are based on this 188+ phase template.
Understanding this templet is a precedence for narrative or screenwriters. This is the templet you must get the hang if you are to win in the craft.
[The nomenclature is most often metaphorical and uses to all successful narratives and screenplays, from The Godfather (1972) to Brokeback Mountain (2006) to Annie Hallway (1977) to Godhead of the Rings (2003) to Drugstore Cowboy (1989) to Thelma and Louise (1991) to Apocaplyse Now (1979)].
THERE IS ONLY ONE STORY
THE 188 phase HERO'S journey affects a figure of major phases, including:
a) The reaching from Another World into an Ordinary World.
b) The Ordinary Self, that have come up about as a consequence of being in the Ordinary World.
c) The encouragement from the Ordinary World into a New World.
d) The gradual dissolving of the Old Self.
e) The becoming of the New Self.
f) The thrusting away from the New Self and New World.
g) The confrontation with challenges.
h) The mastering of the Old and New Worlds and Selves.

ABRIDGED TIPS, excerpts AND EXAMPLES:
INTO Type Type A NEW world AND TOWARDS A NEW SELF
The thought of the Hero entering a New World and venturing towards a New Self should not be taken lightly in storytelling. It is the kernel of the Hero's Journey and is symbolically prevailing in the huge bulk of successful stories. So much so that this procedure is the skeletal system around which your narrative should be based:
In Dead Poets Society (Academy Award Campaigner Best Film, 1989), the male children get in their new school.
In Platoon (Academy Award Best Film, 1986), Deems Taylor gets in Vietnam.
When Harry met Wisecrack (1989), both Harry and Wisecrack traveling from Windy City to New York.
