Go Ahead and Peek! I Won’t Tell Anyone! How to Find the Superhero Within You
Have you ever had a daydream of being a superhero? Wearing a cape and fighting against evil forces to save the world. The notion of superheroes has been a source of inspiration for millions of people worldwide. The idea of having superpowers, fighting villains, and saving people always brings excitement and imagination to every person’s mind. But what if I told you that, with a little bit of courage and self-belief, anyone can be a superhero?
Yes, that’s right. You can be a Superhero. It’s not just about strength, agility, or special powers. Being a superhero comes with great responsibility, and anyone can assume this role. It doesn’t matter who you are or what background you come from. It’s about embracing who you are and accepting the power that is inherently within you. But, where do you start? How do you become a superhero? Here are some steps to follow.
1) Know who and what you are
The first step in becoming a superhero is to understand who you are. Superheroes know that they are different. They have a higher responsibility level than ordinary human beings. They know that they are not quite human and see things differently than many of those around them. One must realize that there is a part of us that is flesh and bone, and another part, a much more powerful but suppressed part of us, that is divine. One must embrace this power within and accept the responsibility that comes with it.
2) Understand that you really do know best
You may not want to face the truth of certain situations, but on some level, you know what is really going on and what is the correct action. The rising tide lifts all boats. If you are confused about what actions or directions are best, just be the rising tide. Lift those around you as much as you possibly can, and you will be lifted.
3) Know that some of the things you are learning now may be skills needed by your future self
Skills have a habit of coming in handy when you least expect it. Never stop learning! Be curious about everything! Steve Jobs talked about how he learned all kinds of random skills, and when he started up Apple, they all seemed to come together. I personally believe that it is our future selves talking when we have a mad desire to learn or do something new.
4) Understand what fear is
There are two types of fear. One is a fear of something that is a real threat or danger. This fear is to be heeded and acted upon to avoid catastrophe. The other type of fear comes from past pain. Past pain is just that – past pain. If your fear is non-specific and is fear of something that will not cause you imminent collapse, conquer your fear and move ahead. Find out what you are really afraid of, face it, and learn as much about it as you can. Then go do what you need to do.
5) Be in good communication with all aspects of your life
Unpleasant occurrences are a lot less likely to sneak up on you if you are in communication with the people and environment around you. Look at each situation newly as they rise up in front of you.
6) Understand people
Listen to everyone’s story, and you will start to get an idea of what even the average person has been through and what they are about. Everyone has a story, and some are quite amazing. Scratch the surface of your fellows – they are really quite remarkable.
7) Keep your integrity
Integrity is a recipe that results in wholeness or freedom from blemish. You can remain whole, unblemished, and perfect if you stick like glue to your own personal ethical code.
8) Respect yourself as much or more than the person you respect the most in your life
Grow into a giant. Encourage others to grow into giants. We need way more giants than weak people right now. Only the weakest among us will try to keep you small.
9) Be compassionate with those in pain but never let them be victims
We all deserve compassion and a helping hand when we need it. But, we do the disservice to those who spend their lives being victimized. Anyone, in their eyes, is better than they are. If you agree with them that they are helpless, you convince them that it is so.
In conclusion, being a superhero is not just for the comic book world. Anyone can be a superhero if they embrace their inner powers and accept the responsibility that comes with it. It starts with knowing yourself and being in good communication with all aspects of your life. Embrace your skills and keep learning. Understand fear and respect yourself, and treat others with compassion but never let them be victims. Go ahead and peek! I won’t tell anyone! Look under your first two shirt buttons and see if there is a bright blue spandex superhero suit underneath. You don’t see it yet? Don’t worry. You will!
