You are a SUPERHERO
You just might not know it. Society has conditioned you to believe that you are ordinary, just like everyone else in many ways. And while some of that maybe true on the surface, you know that inside of you, there is a unique and special ability. Further, even though you may not realize it, you have the capacity to develop even more unique special and amazing abilities. It is possible that over the years, you may have just forgotten that you can.
Don’t you remember…?
When you were a child didn’t you believe that you could run faster because of the kind of sneakers on your feet. Do you remember when you thought you were Wonder Woman because you put on the tiara and had a rope? When you tied a towel around your neck and tried really hard, weren’t you so close to flying
Now, you’re an adult
…and we all know that adulting is generally no fun. #adulting
You show up at work every day by 9:00, coffee in hand. You’re ready to take down your task list, battle your email inbox, and deal with the office politics. You’ve accepted that maybe your impact in this world will be minimal but hey, “a job’s a job”
Didn’t you think there’d be something more? Something better? You may have even thought you were destined to change the world. A Monday morning standup meeting is not what you envisioned.
Where did your dreams go?
One day you were planning big changes. The next day it changes to retirement planning.
What happened to the passion, purpose, and meaning that once drove you? Do you even remember what that felt like?
I’ve been chasing that feeling my entire life. I want to be extraordinary. I want to understand how to unlock the next level and then never stop. I want the time I’m spending here to leave a lasting impact, and when you look deep inside yourself…don’t you?
So, I decided to do something about it.
I know that I possess special abilities. At the same time, I know that throughout my life whether in high school, college, my MBA, being an employee, being an entrepreneur, a strategist, consultant, and podcast host I’ve found that nearly everyone I’ve ever met either has, our had the potential to possess…superpowers.
- I wanted to know where these powers came from.
- I wanted to understand how to learn new ones.
- I wanted to codify the process so that I could teach others.
When you ask the right questions… the answers will appear.
I’ve learned that there is a small core group of superpowers that unlock all of the other abilities. I learned that there is another subset of specific soft skills and mindsets that make these superpowers possible. Finally, I discovered that there are several values that are the key to using your powers for good instead of evil.
I’d like to show you all of this but, there’s a catch.
As you might expect, this journey will not be easy. You will not be able to just skim through this. Becoming a real life superhero requires deep introspection. It requires you to be vulnerable. It requires you to be willing to change so that you can fulfill your life’s purpose. This is the path to survive, thrive, and change the world.
The first step to becoming that superhero you want to be is the leap of faith.
Despite my warnings, do not be afraid.
Part of being a superhero is venturing boldly into the unknown in pursuit of changing the world. If you follow the playbook, you will have all the skills and tools necessary to become the superhero you were meant to be.
Will you join me?
