What’s Your Superpower?


When I was a young kid, I loved reading comic books. One of the comic book series I read was the story of Superman, one of the original superheroes. Superman possessed unique superpowers—he could fly, was faster than a speeding bullet, had super strength, and x-ray vision. Superman used his superpowers to fight the bad guys.

Of course, Superman is a fictional character. But his story serves as a reminder that we all have superpowers. Perhaps they are not like Superman’s, but we have them, nonetheless. Many people struggle to identify their unique strengths and abilities. However, the truth is, we all have something we're good at and that brings us joy. The key is to identify it. Here are some tips to help you find your superpower.


1. What is your skill?


The first step in finding your superpower is to identify your skills. What are you naturally good at? What do you excel in? It could be anything—from public speaking to writing to cooking, or being a great listener. Once you identify your skills, you can start to develop them further and use them to your advantage.


For example, if you're good at public speaking, you could use that skill to become an inspirational speaker or a teacher. If you're a great writer, you could start a blog or write a book. Think about how you can use your skills to make a difference in the world.


2. What gives you joy?


The next step is to think about what brings you joy. What do you love doing? What makes you feel alive? It could be anything—from playing an instrument to hiking to volunteering at a local nonprofit. When you do something that brings you joy, you're more likely to be successful at it.


For example, I recall a friend saying they loved hiking so she became a park ranger. If you like volunteering, you could start your own non-profit organization or work for a charity. Think about how you can combine your skills and your passions to create something unique.


3. What are the opportunities in the world where you can use your skills?


Once you've identified your skills and passions, it's time to start looking for opportunities. What needs are there in the world that you can use your skills to address? It could be anything—from helping children learn to read to designing a plan that solves a problem. If you're a great communicator, you could work for an organization and help them spread their message. Think about how you can use your skills to make a difference in the world.


4. How can you be of service to others?


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once noted, "Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve." That quote reminds us it's important to think about how you can be of service to others. How can you use your skills and passions to improve the lives of others? When we help others, we not only make a positive impact on their lives, but we also feel more fulfilled ourselves.


A friend of mind is a great cook. He decided he would volunteer teaching cooking classes to underprivileged children. Think about how you can use your superpower to make a difference in the world.


Finding your superpower is all about identifying your skills, passions, and opportunities to make a positive impact on our planet. By using your unique abilities to help others, you can truly make a difference and live a fulfilling life. Remember, we all have a superpower—it's just a matter of finding it.


Peace and Blessings,

James
