“I would love to play a superhero. I sometimes walk around thinking, ‘If I were a superhero, what would my superpower be?’” – Olga Fonda
It’s a term that we associate with the powerful superheroes in our favorite cartoons, comic books, and movies. When someone mentions superpowers, our mind goes to the incredible and magical powers of invisibility, telekinesis, and the ability to fly. Looking back on your childhood, which among us haven’t dreamed at one time or another of waking up one morning to find that we have somehow magically acquired the powers of our personal hero, ready to take on the world.
As adults, however, the term superhero can take a different shape. With a greater understanding of the way that the world works, we come to accept and appreciate the real superpowers that exist today – Powers that can directly influence the world that we live in, and our ability to succeed. This includes such traits as creativity, confidence, and willpower. These abilities, while available to everyone who should choose to invest the time and energy to develop them, are a difference maker that separates those that rise above all else to succeed in this life and those who are trapped in their life. The good news? Every one of us possesses a superpower if we just allow ourselves to identify and strengthen it.
