Are You a Superhero?

Do you think you are a superhero?

Is there a voice deep down inside you that knows there's something more to life – not just a little more money or fame – but some larger purpose that you might not be living up to yet? Do you sometimes feel that if you just could let go of fear and concentrate hard enough, there's nothing you couldn't do? Would you save the world if you had the chance?

It's no coincidence that we surround ourselves with larger-than-life stories about superheroes and fantastical worlds. There is a part of each and every one of us that relates to the superheroes, with all their strengths and faults. From mythological stories of Gods and Heroes to Wizards, Witches, Vampires, Fairies, Mutants, Aliens and everything in between, we are obsessed with transcending our limitations.

Can you almost taste the idea that you have an untapped super power just waiting to spring into action? Do you have a knack for something in particular that you know hasn't reached its full potential yet? Are you passionate about what you do? If you weren't held back by responsibility and earning a living in the systematic way most people do, how fast would you run towards your real dreams?

If you think you are a superhero, you probably are.

There's more of us out there than we realize. Problem is, we're broken. We're stuck. We're not using our super powers because it has been too important to "fit in." The safety in the system has kept us down so long that we don't know how to break out. 

"I mean, all those comic books, movies, TV shows... you think that one eccentric loner would've made himself a costume. I mean, is everyday life really so exciting? Are schools and offices so thrilling that I'm the only one who fantasized about this? Come on, be honest with yourself, at some point in our lives we all wanna be a superhero."

If you know it's in you, let it out. Be the superhero you've been waiting for. Save the world or just change one person. Whatever your destiny is, it's time to live it! Your super power could be microscopic and still be just as important as, say, the ability to fly. Your contribution is needed and it can only come from your true, inner super self. Put on your little black mask and fly!
