The Superhero Inside us


“We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be” ~ Grant Morrison –

I’m convinced that each of us has a superhero waiting to be let loose no matter where we are or who we identify with at this particular moment in our lives.

I believe you are a superhero, even if the hero part hasn’t been fully identified or coaxed from its inner lair.

True, Thor was born strong. Superman did nothing of himself to develop his strength and powers. But Spiderman had to become strong. And while he was a passive participant in acquiring his powers, we most certainly don’t have to be.

There is a superhero inside each of us. It’s our job to discover how to release the powers already there, dormant perhaps, but waiting to be discovered, developed and unleashed.

Whether Superhero’s have the power of flight or invisibility, super-human speed or strength, lasers from the eyes, spikes from knuckles, webs from wrists or just have really cool gadgets on a utility belt, superheroes do what seems impossible to the rest of us.

Awaken your inner Superhero by unleashing your super powers: Of course we can’t shoot lasers from our eyes, but we can climb amazing heights of growth and happiness and success. We can rise above the petty and trivial, the superficial and insignificant.

We can become invisible to fear and hate. We can see through walls of self-doubt and dishonesty. We can fly above gossip and rumor. We can break through barriers of fear and insecurity. We can run faster than procrastination and fight our way through the difficulties of life.

So, what’s your superpower? What powers do you plan on developing?

  1. If I could have a super power it would need to be the ability to fly… then I wouldn’t spend large chunks of my day driving through busy London traffic 😉
