I talk a lot about helping people discover and maximize their “Ordinary Superpowers.” I also host retreats and do 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).
So I thought it might be helpful to explain what I mean by a “Superpowered Life.”
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 to live the life you want to live..
…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.
By design, the points above are guiding principles, not specific actions. The specifics are up to you. Everyone’s definition of a Superpowered Life should be custom tailored to the person. I’ve provided these principles to help you define for yourself what you want your Superpowered Life to be. Consider it a starting point and modify it as you see fit.
So that’s the idea of Superpowered Life. I’m curious, though, what it means to you. What would you add to this list? Take away? What is YOUR definition of a Superpowered Life?
