This is a little embarrassing. For months I’ve been talking about my new book that will help people maximize their “Ordinary Superpowers.” I’ve also been hosting retreats and doing some one-on-one coaching with people on the topic. I even set up a new company to handle all of the above called The Superpowered Life Company (and yes, I still own sparkspace, too).
Here’s the embarrassing part: I’ve never officially nailed down what I mean when I say a “Superpowered Life.” So, today I’m sharing my first draft with you. It’s not perfect, it’s not in any particular order, and I know it will evolve. But you gotta start somewhere, right? So here’s my definition:
A Superpowered Life is a life where you…
…are the 100% real, authentic you as much as humanly possible.
…frequently use your most powerful strengths (i.e., your Ordinary Superpowers).
…manage your time well.
…create and sustain the energy you need.
…maintain the best mental, physical, and spiritual health that you’re currently capable of.
…have enough freedom to pursue your passion(s).
…proactively engage in meaningful relationships.
…make a positive difference in the lives of others.
…accept that you’re not perfect at any of this, and that’s OK.
Notice I said a Superpowered Life is where — not when. That’s because I believe a Superpowered Life is not a point in time to work toward. I believe it’s a place of being that you can step into at any time, including right now.
That’s what a Superpowered Life means to me. I’m curious, though, what it means to you. What would you add to this list? Modify? Take away?
