Tap Into Your Inner Superhero

Is it a coincidence that superhero movies are smashing records at the box office?  Our world has a deep fascination with superheroes. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Wolverine, Spider-Man, Storm, The Incredible Hulk, and the list goes on and on. We are drawn to these figures because they possess many of the same qualities that we have within ourselves. Like ourselves, they’re beings born with great potential. It’s the situations they find themselves in, the challenges they face, and ultimately, the decisions they make, that determines who they become and who they are to the world. And if we’re put in the right conditions, given the right training and able to “flesh out” our gifts and talents, we can do something special. There are 5 unbreakable laws to discovering the potential inside of you. By following these steps you will be able to reveal your unique gifts and talents and uncover your ultimate purpose. Step 1: Always look for the opportunity to get stronger You have to develop the gifts you have within yourself and “life” is your training ground to do it. You don’t get stronger, faster, better, more capable, unless you have resistance. The strength of your unique gifts and talents are developed just like a muscle. The more resistance you have, the more exposure and the better your results will be. The challenges in life are not there to debilitate you and get you to quit. They are there to develop the necessary qualities to unleash your full potential. Step 2: Overcome your fears We are all hardwired to fear the unknown, and there’s really nothing wrong with that, as it serves to keep us safe. Yet, this hard-wiring can really sabotage us and keep us from progressing if we don’t see past the fear and allow it to run our life. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” Overcoming your fear is a prerequisite for greatness. Every superhero has fears, no matter where they are in life. Step 3: Follow your heart If you take an honest look inside yourself, what would you be doing with your life if you truly had the choice? The reality is: You do have a choice. It may sound strange, but one of the most courageous things one can do is follow the true calling one has within his soul. Oftentimes we unknowingly conform to what society has deemed to be responsible, acceptable, or “safe” for us to do. Many people put their passions to the side so that they can better fit into what society expects of them. If you take a look at any of the great figures throughout history, you’ll see that they were faced with adversity and they often did things that had never been done before. Just because it’s never been done before (within your friends, family, or the world) does not mean that it can’t be done. You just have to be the one who’s willing to make it happen.

And by asking the right questions, you’ll be better able to uncover the answers you’re looking for. Most people are constantly asking dis-empowering questions like: Why you? What’s wrong with you? You’ll keep finding more reasons for “why you” and have your mind focused on your flaws instead of your potential greatness. Asking the right question is the quickest way to changing the answer you receive. To become empowered in your mind, body, and spirit begin asking questions that serve you and move you forward rather than pulling you back. Try questions like these instead: *What’s right about this? *What gifts or talents do I have RIGHT NOW that can help in this? *How can I have fun doing this? *What is it that I need to learn from this? *Where is the gift or blessing in this? *What qualities are wanting to emerge in me as a result of this? By asking empowering questions you are changing the way your mind operates. This is something that takes practice, but it will pay off with endless benefits along the way. To reach your superhero potential, you have to be focused on solutions instead of on problems. Use the power of your mind to uncover the answers you need to fulfill your mission here on the planet. Step 5: Be willing The greatest asset of the superhero is the willingness to do what is necessary. The superhero is willing to be the example, to fight for what they believe in, and to never give up. The road is usually tough at first. When you break out of the mold and start following your dreams, often times it can feel like an uphill battle. Rest assured, if you stick to it, and you follow the steps provided here, you will reach the top and the road gets much easier from there. Remember: the prize is never about what you get, it’s who you become in the process. So whatever your unique mission is, be willing to say yes to it. “With great power comes great responsibility”, and the power within you is great enough to change the world.
